Hi

Can I use the bibliography tool to make a list of the bibles in my library?

2nd I want to make multiple resource..  parallel bible of Dt chapter 28 with a about 5 versions and share it with a friend that I'm discussing with and I am trying to include a interlinear and a reverse interlinear. Can I create a note... save it and then export to pdf?

Yes. Create a Collection of bibles with the rule  type:bible  --> no spaces. In Bibliography, click Add and select ...a Collection. Then select your collection.

I'm not sure how it will help to use the multiple resources feature and Notes tool when your friend appears to need a pdf report.

Try Text Comparison with no more than 5 versions incl. Reverse Interlinear. An Interlinear could pose problems being in a different language (Hebrew), but you could try that in a different Text Comparison. Remember that the other bibles are compared to the first bible when making your list. Type Dt 28 in order to generate the whole chapter. Try Horizontal layout and Vertical layout (from the Panel menu) as they compare verse-by-verse (horizontal) or bible-by-bible (vertical) when you Export. You can "Print" to pdf in Windows. I think Mac has a  pdf option in the Export list.

It was sorta 2 seperate thoughts. The list of Bibles was so I could create a few collections  so I can organize my library and wrap my mind around what I have and get some structure to how I use it. IE a collection of older english bibles... like the geneva and the cambridge. A collection of interlinears, A collection of jewish bibles and Tanakhs

The Text comparison... my cousin...  is off on a bent with a group that has issues with the KJV...  so I asked him well what version do they use? And he says the 1611. 2 minutes research and I confirm my suspicion that the 1611 is a KJV... but I'm cool about it. Cause I've been around enough evangelism that I know the best way to show people things sometimes is to listen to where they are...understand the parts that may not hold water when held up to the light of scripture taken in context... and then give them information that allows them to see it in context , pray in a good dose of the holy spirit and either they will see it for themselves or they wont. And sometimes it takes a long time.
So starting with his KJV and adding a couple other older versions...
the sect he's dealing is trying to put a particular spin on Deuteronomy  chapter 28 and a couple chapters in Revelations and apply them to this current time. Which at least for Deuteronomy is way out of context

The Logos KJV (The Holy Bible: King James Version) is from 1769 and corrects many of the errors/typos of the 1611 version (but not "Holy Ghost"). Whether comparison alone will resolve these issues, it is worth looking at this website.

One thing I'm having to come to grips with is...
If you can relax by listening to a Mike Heiser or Morris Proctor or Ryan Reeves lecture, with Logos open on a second screen and taking notes in evernote on another device and be happy...
If you can pretty much from memory layout, starting from the day of Pentecost, over view the development of the catholic church, through to the anglican church and into the start of the protestant church and how the Bible developed from the Tanakh, through to the manuscripts that have been found over say the last 100 years
You will loose most people... that just want to believe something, listen to someone talk, and say something that sounds like it will get you to heaven...
I realize that most people here are probably pastors, teachers, and theologians... but we need nerd swag
Thanks for the website... I need the information.
Even people that say they want to know... dont Really want to know. It's like in the Movie the Matrix... the blue pill and the red pill. Logos, especially when you really understand how to use it... is a serious Red pill.
Thanks again for the website.

Most people actually use the 1700s(or later) kjv. The original 1611 had letters that no longer exist in english. So, unless they have a non-standard alphabet, they don't actually have the 1611 version of the 1611. They probably have the 1700s version. Many of those who prefer kjv don't know the difference. but now you do :)



This is an early copy of the 1611 called the great "she" bible. notice how wildly different it is from most modern "1611" kjv.

Blog article => https://blog.logos.com/2017/06/youve-probably-never-seen-real-king-james-version/ may be interesting.

Old English has a long S that looks like "f" with horizontal bar only on left side. Ruth 3:15 "he went into the city" OR "she went into the city" Wikipedia => https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_James_Version

For a discussion of the issue in Logos resources see BUG: Tyndale Newe Testament character processing incorrectly (but coded correctly)

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