This is a Can Logos Do This question.  I was wondering if Logos could tell me what are the most popular words used in a given book.  ?

Sort of like word frequency but narrowed down to individual Bible books.

Hmm it depends what you mean.

If your talking about Greek and Hebrew words from the Bible then Yes.

All you do is create a word list from a passage or book of the Bible and you sort these in order of frequency of the words.

Not sure that answers the question.

Two ways I would go about this.

Create a Word List for the entire book you are interested in and then sort by Count. Example below is for Jude ( please post back if you aren't familiar with creating Word Lists)

If you are a Logos Now subscriber the Concordance feature does this very nicely

Here I've sorted Lemmas in John by count
