Can someone give me some insight into the usage of the preposition usage part of the Bible Word Study? Thanks!

Does https://wiki.logos.com/Bible_Word_Study#Preposition_use_section give you a starting point?

Michael,

The Preposition Use in the BWS guide is tool that visually shows how the lemma in questions is used with various prepositions. For example, when I perform a BWS on λόγος I notice that in the NT λόγος is used with:

  • ἐπὶ (G, D)
  • ἐν
  • ἀπὸ
  • ἐκ
  • περὶ (G)
  • διὰ
  • κατὰ (A)
  • μετὰ (A)
  • εἰς

The letters beside the prepositions above indicate the case in which λόγος is (i.e. accusative, dative, genitive); some prepositions appear in multiple cases, so this is a quick and easy way to see what case λόγος is in in the examples.

This can be replicated by a syntax search, but this section in the BWS is much quicker to use, and because it is in the BWS guide you will have even more information all in one place.

Cliff
