1. In Disciple-Making and Sentence Diagramming Tim Brister spends six entries showing one how to do sentence flow diagrams - a style that the Logos sentence diagrammer is reasonable tool for creating. (see Documents). The diagram as Brister presents it grows like this:

See the blog for the abbreviations and method.

2. Compare that with the two step Logos method which works on bibles that are morphologically tagged (Greek/Hebrew) or have a reverse interlinear. The tags available for clauses are defined in Keaton, Mark. The Lexham Propositional Outlines Glossary. Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press, 2014.:

3. In this case of Logos one cannot:

  • select the label in the filter to add a note suggesting an alternative reading or to bring up a Context Menu
  • search/find for any of the label

However, it is a good quick and dirty way to see one understanding of the structure of the passage. However, I would like to be able to copy and paste this view into the sentence diagrammer so that I can add additional color and connections (Brister is an example) or make "corrections"

4. When one sees something odd such as "and" standing alone as a command, remember that the tagging is done against the original language and mapped to other versions. Comparing version may explain the oddity ... in this case it is usually "and go". Note that setting Visual Filter ==> Resource ==> Corresponding Selection simplifies this comparison.

Yes  My wheels are turning about how a sentence diagram document could leverage the propositional outline filter for small group study & discussion....Idea
