Friedeman, Caleb T., ed. A Scripture Index to Rabbinic Literature. Peabody, MA: Hendrickson Academic, 2021.

This resource appears to work well. As a bonus, Logos now has a list of the rabbinic resources I want next.

I guess? The 3 reviewers were a bit frustrated ... doesn't track to a Bible. My CitedBy's do the same, except some outliers. Then, there's Strack/english finishing up (also CitedBy).

I wonder what happened.

True it lacks a Bible index but it is tagged with the appropriate Bible datatype so searches and Collections work. I'd like to see it added to the Ancient Literature data.

Not belaboring (or disagreeing) but I a sizable chunk (apparently?) isn't tagged looking at the sample.  Or a sizable chunk isn't in Logos to tag to.  I guess burned once, twice shy (New Jerusalem update).

Can you give an example of how one might use this resource? I don't think I understand how it works. Thanks.

Well, if you have the coming update, you'd simply link it to your Bible, and it'd show you all the places jewish writings discuss a verse/idea.  Since jewish writings are pretty spread out, and over maybe a thousand years (the ones ref'd), it's a big time saver. As MJ mentions, current looker-upper tools can get to the Bible refs, so it's do-able now too. Don't know about the tagging completeness.

The other time-saver is indices to the jewish writings by subject. So far, it's only hardcopy.

Thanks, I understand that part - I was more looking for how it could be used now in Collections, or through guides, as I think that is possible now?

It works as (part of) a collection in the collection section of a passage guide.
