  • How can I search for where Augustine said the OT is revealed in the NT?
    1. I'd run a Basic search in author:augustin for old NEAR new NEAR revealed NEAR concealed.
    2. , your search returns no results for me. I imagine due to the author not being tagged(?). Also, dropping "concealed" helps since the quote seems to use "veiled." I did a basic search for "(OT, old) BEFORE 3 WORDS "revealed in" BEFORE 3 WORDS (NT, new)" and got this as one of the top hits: https://ref.ly/logosres/npnf08?ref=Augustine.Enarr.+in+Ps.+106.32&off=593

      What I've heard quoted most often is this: "Therefore, in the Old Testament the New is concealed, and in the New the Old is revealed." St. Augustine, St. Augustine: The First Catechetical Instruction, ed. Johannes Quasten and Joseph C. Plumpe, trans. Joseph P. Christopher, vol. 2, Ancient Christian Writers (New York; Mahwah, NJ: Newman Press, 1947), 23. https://ref.ly/logosres/stgstnctnstrctn?ref=Augustine.De+catech.+rud.+4.8&off=979&ctx=anded+down+to+us.52+~Therefore%2c+in+the+Ol In the ECF it's translated this way: "Wherefore, in the Old Testament there is a veiling of the New, and in the New Testament there is a revealing of the Old." Augustine of Hippo, “On the Catechising of the Uninstructed,” in St. Augustin: On the Holy Trinity, Doctrinal Treatises, Moral Treatises, ed. Philip Schaff, trans. S. D. F. Salmond, vol. 3, A Select Library of the Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers of the Christian Church, First Series (Buffalo, NY: Christian Literature Company, 1887), 287. https://ref.ly/logosres/npnf03?ref=Augustine.De+catech.+rud.+4.8&off=1069&ctx=ned+to+remembrance.+~Wherefore%2c+in+the+Ol With that in mind I'd broaden the query to old NEAR new NEAR (reveal*) NEAR (concealed, veiling).
  • Hi ..how do i start my bible study
    1. Can you expand your request a little? Are you asking how to start Logos software or how to to start a Logos course or just how to get started in Bible study in general? There is lots of help available here.
  • I would like to do a search of "glossalalia" but only in resources published after 2000. How would I set up the search string?
    1. Thank you. I am a happy man :-)
    2. you saw 's forum reply on this too, huh? LOL. I saw it a few moments ago and came to this post to tell Bert, but you beat me to it. lol.
    3. , I didn’t actually. Just doing this on my phone via the app notifications.
  • Totally new to this, but I'm trying to find what scholars interpretation on Roman 1: 24-28
    1. Whether you will have many commentaries by scholars depends on your library. Some commentaries are by pastors ore theologians who aren't necessarily "scholars." But if you want to see all your commentaries on this passage, Open the passage guide from the Guides menu Type in Rom 1:24-28 in the search box. Hit enter. Voila! You'll have all your commentaries on this passage. You'll also have all your journals on this passage below that. If this isnt what you need, let me know.

    I'd like to find verses where ἀπό is used temporally. Can someone please help me with the search syntax? Thanks.
    1. I’m not at my computer but this might get you started: <Lemma = lbs/el/ἀπό> WITHIN 2 WORDS (time, day)
    2. Thanks Reuben, that's a start. We would need to add "hour, beginning, creations, foundation" and maybe some others. But that would still miss some verses ...
  • I think there may be a programming error in the search templates. I've tried to get help before, and other people do not seem to have this problem. I am running Logos 8.9.0.0023 with all Logos 8 features. Platinum. My computer is an MSI with intel i7-7700HQ CPU @2.80 GHz 2.80 GHz. 16.0 gb RAM So far I've only found this error in the Hebrew templates, "Hebrew Word Translated as" and "Hebrew word not translated as." First, either of these uses the same syntax. When I choose "Hebrew word not translated as" the box fills out, "Hebrew word translated as" Second, no matter what Bible or Bibles I use, I get 0 (zero) results. This happens with all Bibles, interlinears, reverse interlinears. The same problem does not occur in the Greek settings. I have all the datasets, but I think there is a bug somewhere in the programme. Anyone else notice this?
    1. > First, either of these uses the same syntax. This is a bug; thanks for reporting it. > Second, no matter what Bible or Bibles I use, I get 0 (zero) results. It's working for me. What are some example words you're putting in each box? For example, I entered אֱלֹהִים and God and the resulting query ‎ <Lemma = lbs/he/אֱלֹהִים> INTERSECTS God finds results in ESV.
  • Is there a Personal Journal on Logos that I can have to write out my thoughts and journal in on this seminary journey? If there is not one in Logos, is there any way to import a journal into Logos? Thank You!!
    1. doutrina de Deus
    2. I have been using Notes for daily jounaling. It took a little while for me to get used to the interface, but it is working well now. Have you tried Notes?
    3. I use notes also. I created a folder called JOURNAL and store those notes there. I make the first line (which acts as the title to the journal note) the date of the entry. The nice thing about it is that if, in your journaling, you tag key words or insert references, those journal entries can come up years later when you search those references or tags in Logos, those bringing back a flood of good ole memories. :-)
  • How do I find a timeline on the Protestant Reformation?
    1. We don't have a timeline specific to the Protestant Reformation, but a number of Reformation events are included in the Timeline. Tools > Timeline, then enter "reformation" in the search box. You may have to scroll to the appropriate date range.
    2. Also, in all resources, search: "Reformation timeline" OR Reformation NEAR chart OR "Chart of the Reformation" OR Reformation NEAR timeline OR Reformation NEAR chronology Also, do an image search for search Reformation or related terms that you can think of. This will likely yield some charts on the Reformation. I find image searches very helpful for timeline data. Also, check your History of Christianity resources in Logos. Some of those will have timelines of the Reformation, especially resources that have full-color images.
  • How do I search for all the places and people mentioned within a specific passage range? For instance, what are all the places and who are the people mentioned in Acts 16?
    1. , that won't work. We don't have wildcard searching support for people and places. You'll need to use Concordance (https://ref.ly/logos4/Concordance) to do that.
    2. ah, yes, I completely forgot. Thanks for the reminder.

      you can also use Tools > Explorer. This can also be linked to your Bible to follow along as you read. This will also include people mentioned by descriptions and pronouns (like the inclusion of Luke via "we"). The Louw-Nida approach that described only captures people and places mentioned by name.
  • I'm looking to narrow down search results. I'd like to search my library for references to a particular author, where other authors discuss his work, focused on a particular passage of Scripture. So, I thought I'd start by searching my library for the author's last name. Is there some way to search within these results for a passage of Scripture? What other ways can I narrow down these results?
    1. I'm not at my desk right now so I can't get specifics. But you could create a collection with only books by that author and then you would change your search criteria to only search that collection. Then you could do a search like <John 3:16> and it would return everytime that passage is tagged in one of their books.
    2. You can search author name NEAR <passage>, author name WITHIN 25 WORDS <passage>. You can increase or decrease the word count (25) as needed.
    3. You could also search for the author's name, then save those search results as a collection; then search that collection for the passage you want. This would probably give too many false results, though.
