I am trying to get a list of all the people listed/mentioned in the New Testament. Does anyone know if Logos can do this?

Thanks

The Concordance Tool - if you have access to it - is a good option:

Note your list may be incomplete. FL has not given all individuals unique tags.

Sean Boisen:

We haven't yet shipped the dataset documentation for Biblical People (there's a lot to document!): but IIRC, as a matter of expediency, we only assigned unique identifiers to unnamed people who occurred at least five times in the text (or had some other rationale for distinguishing them). Otherwise we'd have piled up a lot of identifiers with virtually no information, which clutters other parts of the interface (like Factbook).

Example: in Gen 22:3, Abraham takes "two of his young men" with him to prepare to sacrifice Isaac. These young men are mentioned three times in this passage but not elsewhere, so we've curated no further information about them besides the generic "A servant".

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

To clarify: all individuals are tagged, but they may not have unique tags. In Graham's screenshot, you would need to expand "A Man" and "A Scribe", examine the instances, and decide how many unique individuals they refer to (if that's important to you).
