Dear Friends,

I am looking for a way to create an index of a work by Scriptural passage. Is this possible.

For my Tappert's Book of Concord for example, the editors catalogued every use of scripture with page numbers. So, if you were doing a study on a particular passage, you would be able to read particular controversies or questions which have arisen with respect to those passages.

I am wondering if the logos engine is capable of lifting all hyperlinked scriptural passages and cataloguing them by page number in my Mueller's Christian Dogmatics, for example.

Thanks,

John

Logos Now has a concordance feature that will do this easily. However, in Logos 6 if you run a search <Gen-Rev> on the book you will get all the Biblical references and be able to export them.

MJ,

How do you format that search in Logos 6?  Would this begin from the inline search?

This certainly could be very helpful in locating an author's thoughts related to a particular passages in a particulars book.

Thank you, Dave

If you click on the bottom image, the screen shot should be readable. The search is for <Gen-Rev> on The Book of Concord (Tappert). Notice the time on my Search ... it takes a long time but it works.

Do I see it right that without Logos Now there is no way to get just a list of Bible references similar to what you show in your first screenshot, is that correct?

Ahhh, yes, I see MJ.  Thank you for calling that to my attention.  Initially when I tried this method of searching I 'timed out' after a few minutes thinking it wasn't working!  But I tried again and it does work.  Thanks again,

Dave

If you mean on the right side ("concordance"), that is correct. It is a new feature and is currently only available to Logos Now subscribers.

If I export the Concordance results, I only get the total reference count (see below) instead of the entire list of verses. Any thoughts why?

Yes, that is the way it works. One has to use the Search method to be able to export as a Passage List.

Why? Because this Concordance feature is incomplete both in its export function and in n-tuple processing. So much promise for the tool but ...

1. I was hoping that the final result would be an Excel document with a page number in one column and a Bible verse in the next column. Is that possible?

2. I don't see how I can export it to a Passage List (though this isn't my first choice, Excel is).

3. When I export it to Excel, it limits the export to 100 lines.

Thanks!

Not to my knowledge

You are correct that this option is only available from a Bible search; sorry, my memory failed me - I use a trick to get the Passage List.

I'm having a bit of a problem with testing this - I'm surprised but ...

Can you share this trick?

So I just figured out that in order to export more than 100, you need to click on "Next" at the bottom of the search results and export again. In other words, it's only exporting one page of search results at a time.

It's still not doing exactly what I'm looking for since the "Text" column gives the preview text only. What I would like for it to do is to list out the individual verses: one on each line.
