Go to Mark 1:5 in the ESV.

  • Three places are mentioned in this verse: Judea, Jerusalem, and the river Jordan.
  • I'd like to get a map or see a pic of these places, so I right click on Judea, but with the Bible Facts I can only get link to Person > "People in Judea hearing John."
  • I right click on Jerusalem, and I can only get Person > "People in Jerusalem"
  • I right click on Jordan, and I do get Place > Jordan with the maps I want.
  • There are Facts/Places connected w/ Judea and Jerusalem, so I'm thinking those should show up.
  • Further, using the Biblical Places Guide, I'm guessing it uses the same linkings, so only Jordan shows up as a reference for Mark 1.5.

Go to Mark 3:7-8.

  • Here we find the sea, Galilee, Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea, Jordan, Tyre, Sidon all mentioned.
  • These do all have correct links to the Facts > Places, and the Biblical Places Guide has links to them all.

Maybe this is all still a work in progress, but it is helpful, so I encourage further refinement of the links.

I would imagine this is done deliberately. When Mark uses the word "Judea" he is not referring to the geographical area, but to the people. Therefore the Logos editors have tagged that word with "People in Judea Hearing John", rather than the place Judea. Likewise for Jerusalem. The editors try to ensure their tagging gets the sense of the word, so that's why it's tagged with people rather than a place.

@Mark Barnes. Thanks. Your reply makes sense, but in 3.7f, it is also referring to the crowds from those places. Ideally, Logos would provide links to both persons and place.
