Our team of experts has painstakingly cataloged the genre of every verse in the Bible. A given passage of Scripture may include numerous types and sub-types of biblical genres. For instance, the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5 includes Old Testament quotes, legal sayings, discipleship sayings, and more. The Literary Type Dataset identifies these categories and places them in hierarchical order—from book genre all the way down. When you access the Passage Guide, Logos scours this database, showing you the literary genre of every unit in the passage you’re studying
