I was studying this morning and realized how much I love the fact that Logos automatically highlights in my resources the references my Bible is open to. For instance, I was in 2 Cor. 1:12 looking up "conduct" I pulled up a Bible Word Study, clicked on BDAG and scrolled down till I 2:Cor 1:12 highlighted. Within seconds I knew exactly where BDAG placed 2 Cor. in its list of translations. Then while I was reading through the list of places the word "conduct" appeared I noticed Heb. 13:18 and thought the similarities given the proximity of "conscience was interesting so, out of curiosity, I wanted to see if Heb 13:18 appeared as a cross reference in NTSK for 2 Cor 1:12. I typed NTSK in the command bar and sure enough Heb 13:18 was highlighted.

I love this feature too!

When I was in seminary I used to spend gobs of time skimming my print copy of BDAG when I needed to see for a class how the work was classified by the lexicon. If only I had Logos 4 then, it would have saved me so much time!

I agree completely on Logos4's capabilities. But I'm going to have to be the odd-lady-out (and probably the only one on the forum!) and say a sizable number of  BDAG's verse assignments are theologically based (meaning if you make a differing assumption on the writer-belief, the word meaning would also shift).

But that said, Logos4 is often a quiet surprise in showing relationships.

"God will save his fallen angels and their broken wings He'll mend."

I completely agree. I may not know from the highlighting that BDAG is right with how they class the word's usage, but I can at least quickly see how they do class it so I can start making those determinations faster.
