The Psalms and Proverbs explorers are really cool. I was browsing the Messianic Psalms when I started thinking about Advent and wishing I could browse the Messianic passages in Isaiah (e.g.)

Wouldn't it be really, really ultra amazing if all the Messianic prophecies of the OT could be tagged and searched in a tool like this? Include dividing searches by type of literature, or individual books/authors. 

Yes, it would be a massive project. But now that you've got Psalms and Proverbs done, I'm sure someone is looking for work, right? Wink

Despite the obvious arguments over what is and is not messianic, I love this idea.

Very interesting idea and Hengstenberg (not available in Logos, alas) has already done a lot of the work.

To MJ's point I think Faithlife would have to take someone else's data and encode it. I wouldn't want to be answering all the questions of "Why this?" and "Why not that?"

Next "Prophecy Fulfilled in the New Testament" interactive. Yes

Oops I just noticed ... but the Psalms and Proverbs aren't done at least per Faithlife's "promises" during the betas.

It would be good to have it user-editable. 

I am thinking that also user-editable maps and timelines would be good,

Me too!

There are plenty of books on messianic prophecies and typology, both inside and outside of Logos, that could be harvested for suggestions.

EDIT: And if you're referring to Christology of the Old Testament, it's in the Files forum.
