Literary Type Dataset

Lexham Press 2014

We’ve identified biblical genres, down to the smallest unit of text

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

In Logos 6 this powerful dataset is greatly enhanced with searchability. Identify every occurrence of “grace and peace” in epistolary greetings. Discover every rhetorical question in the Pauline epistles. Search for every quotation from the Law in Old Testament prose. The information we’ve collected represents years of research that Logos has done for you.

The Literary Type Dataset gives you an instant overview of how each passage fits into the genres of biblical literature.
