How would I do a search to find all the comparisons and contrasts used in the Bible? ie. light vs darkness, good vs evil, wise and unwise etc Also the contrasts and comparisons Jesus uses as he speaks to people.

Man, the things people ask forSmile

This is not possible. You have to do it for yourself e.g. a Bible Search for light darkness specifying "Match all word forms".

I busted out laughing when I read this. Oh the things people with a star by their name have to endure from us people lower on the Logos knowledge chain (I am speaking for myself and not about Ted) Thanks for making my day DaveBig Smile

It would be limited to the Greek/New Testament, but could a person Search for Louw-Nida Contrast <LN ~ 89.124-138>

This idea came from the shared Collection/Visual Filter called Louw-Nida 89 Relations posted by Keep Smiling 4 Jesus on Aug 3, 2014.

You could try using the semantic role of comparative if your blood pressure is well under control (there is a bug in the  analysis view). I believe you'll find it under the Clause search tab.

You could try the Lexham New Testament Propositional Outlines:

  • Background-Comparison
  • Comparison
  • Contrast

I think I will take this opportunity to go on a tangentially related rant. I have made many Logos glossaries into flash cards using Anki ... and have asked (or thought of asking) for the card feature of Logos to be expanded to review decks and to include Logos vocabulary decks automatically. My usual argument is that it is FL's responsibility to provide us with the opportunity to learn what a piece of data actually means.  But in this case, my argument is that because comparison/contrast sounded familiar it took all of two minutes to find answers for Ted when he'd been basically told "no way". So please can we demand Logos provide us with a study tool that allows us to learn Logos?

And yes, a search on compare, comtrast on Glossries will frequently set you off in the correct direction.

Takes a bit more work to find the arguments but the Label search on the Bullinger Figures of Speech dataset provides another tool to find the relevant cases ... sorry, I just tried one rather than identify the full set.
