I have a couple of Gospel harmonies in my Logos library, but they're all with English translations. Is there a harmony in Greek?

Welcome to the forums!

I have Synopsis of the Four Gospels by Kurt Aland. What's neat about it is that you can switch it to display any version you what, including Greek.

It's in quite a few base packages, so you may already have it: https://www.logos.com/product/8890/synopsis-of-the-four-gospels

Integ:

The Logos version is better in some ways than the print version. However the negative product reviews should be heeded.

I believe you can select the version displayed with all the synopsies/harmonies and with the Parallel Gospel Reader interactive.  The interactive has the added bonus of having word-level alignments built in for Matthew, Mark, and Luke so when you hover over words, the corresponding words get highlighted.

This is a great feature. How do I turn it on? I'm only seeing pericope-level alignment (which is why I never used the resource much).

EDIT: Sorry, I misread. You're talking about the Parallel Gospel Reader interactive, which I don't have. I thought you were referring to the Synopsis.

Be sure to select a version that has a reverse interlinear and it should just work. The alignments are all done at original language level.

So if I got the Parallel interactive, I should be able to do Greek word-level comparisons as I hover?

Say yes and I'll buy it in a jiffy.

Well Lee, the answer is "yes". I guess you are going to buy it now. Smile

Strange. It does not seem to be working right.

Here is an example of the occurrence in Mark not lighting up.

In this example the occurrence in John doesn't light up.

Mark 1:2-3 is parallel to Luke 3:4 and Matthew 3:3 and these are word aligned.

Matthew 11:10 and Luke 7:27 are a different context from the above parallel, where Jesus is speaking about John the Baptist, and quoting the same passage from Isaiah.  This is why these two verses aren't word aligned to the above three verses.

John is not at this time word aligned with the synoptics.  There aren't many direct verbal parallels there, so it hasn't really been a priority.

Thanks for the clarifications!

Well, it does seem rather like an unfinished feature now.

Note for example that if you choose Kurt Aland's synopsis, instead of Eusebian Canons, he does not align Mark with Mt. 11:10=Lk 7:27.

This is all quite confusing to me. I was particularly interested in the verbal parallels, not so much the pericopic parallels. I thought the program would highlight them on the fly, using some internal algorithm, instead of manual tagging.

The omission of John (given that there aren't many parallels at all) is also rather disappointing. I hope this could be added later on.

Yeah, it's manual tagging of synoptic parallels.   I do hope to add John, but I don't know when that might be done.  

The Corresponding Words visual filter in resource windows (not the interactives though) will highlight all words with the same lemma as the word you are hovering over.  That might be closer to what you are wanting.

How do I set that up so I can see lemmas pop up for similar words across the gospels?

You can open two copies of a Bible and turn on the visual filter:

I can't activate this within the interactive?

So close, and yet so far. Sigh.
