Biblical Referents Dataset

by

Lexham Press, Faithlife 2012–2015

Know who is speaking and who is acting in any passage

We’ve spent countless hours examining every verse of Scripture, identifying who is being referred to in each pronoun, verb, and noun in the Bible. We’ve identified 380,000 mentions of 8,000 distinct entities. That information, collected in the Biblical Referents Database, ensures you find every reference to biblical people, places, or things. For example, when you look for “Peter,” Logos consults this dataset and shows you every single biblical reference—whether he’s referred to as Cephas, Simon, Peter, or even “the Rock.” Since referents are catalogued in Hebrew, Greek, and English, you can even search in the original languages. We’ve identified what person or thing performs every action in the Bible. Search for “person: Jesus verb: to heal” and discover every instance Jesus heals someone in Scripture. Those kinds of powerful, precise searches are only possible thanks to the hours of research Logos has done for you. The Biblical Referents Database Dataset makes searching and understanding the Bible easier than ever.
