1. In ESV bible resource, right click on a word and choose BDAG.

2. BDAG opens at the top of the definition.

Is it possible to have it open to the Scripture reference of the word I chose in first step?

No, this is not possible. The best help Logos can offer is through the "Emphasize active references" visual filter. If you enable this in BDAG, you will see the reference from your open Bible highlighted in red:

Oh man! This is incredibly helpful!

May I ask you a second, similar question?

When I double-click on a word in my ESV, it opens Mounce's dictionary...I'd prefer it to open BDAG!

BDAG is prioritized above Mounce, but doesn't seem to matter!

Is the word you are clicking on in BDAG?

Well, the Greek word is. But I assume that's not what you mean. So, no--the word "truth" in 1 John 1:8 is not in BDAG.

Sorry - I meant the Greek word. I’ll check into this further when back at my computer

Double-clicking on a word works on the word itself and not on the underlying original language term.

Mounce is organised / indexed by English terms - and hence matches - unlike BDAG which is organised by Greek terms - so it doesn't

You could try using the Information Tool which can provide access to different reference resources and will update when you click on / hover over a word

Clicking BDAG in the example above will open the lexicon to the article on that term

In addition to Grahams suggestion you could also link BDAG to your ESV:

That's probably a much better ideaSmileYes
