Hello :)

Could someone post a link or list (or even teach me by Logos), of an exhaustive list of 'classes' of people reference by our bible (I.e. wicked, righteous, saint, lost, effeminate, etc...) Thank you so Much. :)

I honestly don't see how this could be generated except by doing a "hands-on" page-by-page study.

The only resource I can think of is Meredith's Complete Book of Bible Lists available in Vyrso (works with Logos too).  Willmington's Book of Bible List has some people too (available in Logos).

Here's a sample from the People's section on Meredith's book (Also look at the end for a sample of Willmington's Book of Bible List which has a section on "Sexually Impure":


91. Nine Infamous Villains in the Bible
1. Cain committed the first murder by killing his brother, Abel (Genesis 4:8).
2. Laban made many attempts to swindle Jacob, but Jacob ultimately prospered (Genesis 29–31).
3. Saul broke many oaths of love toward David and attempted to kill him several times (1 Samuel 19–27).
4. Absolom led a revolt against his father David (2 Samuel 15).
5. Ahab, king of Israel, did evil in the sight of the Lord above all that were before him (1 Kings 16:30).
6. Haman plotted to have the entire Hebrew nation legally killed (Esther).
7. Herod ordered the killing of all the babies in Bethlehem two years and under, in an attempt to kill Jesus; he also authorized John the Baptist’s beheading (Matthew 2:16; 14:10).
8. Judas betrayed Jesus into the hands of the Jewish leaders (Matthew 26:14–15).
9. Pilate allowed Jesus to be crucified, though he acknowledged His innocence (John 18–19).

97. The Ten Most-Mentioned Men in the New Testament
1. Jesus is by far the most-mentioned man in the New Testament.
2. Paul, the writer of a large share of the books of the New Testament, is the next most mentioned.
3. Peter was the chief apostle and is mentioned almost as many times as Paul.
4. John the Baptist is mentioned eight-six times.
5. Surprisingly, Pontius Pilate, who is mentioned fifty-six times, claims more attention than such people as Matthew, Mark, and Luke, who are not mentioned enough to make this list.
6. John the apostle is mentioned thirty-five times.
7. Here’s another villain: Herod the tetrarch is mentioned thirty times.
8. Timothy’s association with Paul accounts for his name being mentioned twenty-eight times.
9. Judas Iscariot is mentioned twenty-three times.
10. Philip the deacon, also known as the evangelist, is mentioned sixteen times.

98. The Ten Most-Mentioned Men in the Old Testament
1. King David has a clear majority with almost half again as many references as the runner-up.
2. Moses is credited with writing the first five books of the Bible and is mentioned twice as often as the third place winner.
3. Moses’ brother Aaron was Israel’s first high priest and was often the spokesman for Moses.
4. Jacob, as a person, is mentioned quite often. If all of the references to his new name, Israel, were taken into account, he would be the most mentioned; however, most uses of the name Israel concern the tribes or children of Israel.
5. Saul was the first king of Israel, but didn’t get as much coverage as his successor, King David. Saul has to settle for fifth place.
6. Abraham was God’s friend, because he believed God. That earned him a place among the ten most famous men in the Old Testament.
7. King Solomon, the third king of Israel, was the richest and wisest king mentioned in the Bible.
8. Joseph was a dreamer and an interpreter of dreams. God used Joseph to get the tribe of Israel into Egypt. Then it took over four hundred years to get Israel out of Egypt.
9. Joshua fought the battle of Jericho. He took over Moses’ position. 10. Jeremiah wept much about Israel and is one of the major prophets of the Old Testament.
Note: The first man, Adam, is mentioned only thirty times.

99. The Ten Most-Mentioned Women in the Bible
1. Sarah, the wife of Abraham, had a child when she was ninety years old. She is mentioned fifty-six times in the Bible.
2. Rachel was one of Jacob’s wives. Jacob loved her the most and worked fourteen years for her father so that he could marry her. Rachel is mentioned forty-seven times in the Bible.
3. Leah was Jacob’s first wife. Jacob was tricked into marrying Leah, but Leah still wins the honor of being mentioned thirty-four times in the Bible.
4. Rebekah was Isaac’s wife and the mother of Esau and Jacob. She is mentioned thirty-one times.
5. The women’s list also includes an infamous person. Jezebel is mentioned twenty-three times.
6. The Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus, is mentioned only nineteen times.
7. Abigail, the wife of Nabal, and later the wife of King David, is mentioned fifteen times and is tied for seventh place.
8. Also mentioned fifteen times is Miriam, the sister of Moses.
9. The last two women on this list are both mentioned fourteen times. Mary Magdalene knew Jesus personally and received deliverance and forgiveness from Him.
10. Hagar was Abraham’s concubine and the mother of Ishmael.
Note: Eve, the mother of the human race, is mentioned only four times in the whole Bible!
