I'd like to be able to report errors such as the one marked here via a right click menu ... when its more work that the right click it often goes unreported.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I wouldn't see this as an error in the interactive (or tagging) but more of a translation question. See below on Romans 2:29 - the same applies to 8:15

Thanks, MJ.

The data in Names of God is built from person and referent data; it is a derivative of those datasets. So the best way to report this is to report the data issue with person/place/thing and referent data, not report as a bug in the interactive. The potential issues (and, as Graham points out, some of the ambiguities with this sort of data) are just a bit more prominent in Names of God.

Thanks for pointing these out; they do get reported and will be reviewed.

As it is my understanding that it is the original language that is actually tagged, I'd treat it as a more philosophical issue - Logos giving no indication that the chosen option is not a consensus position.

But in the example I posted above it seems that the original language does refer to "spirit" as opposed to "spiritual"

There is a reference error in the Israelite Feasts and Sacrifices interactive. I agree with previous comments that there should be an easy way to report these errors.

Within reason, I think that false positives are better than false negatives in this kind of resource. You could certainly asterisk disputed points, but how disputed is worth noting? Text Comparison indicates that a substantial majority of modern Bibles agree with Logos on this particular example. It gets complex quickly.
