Today I was reading John 5 and came across Bethesda. I noticed a reference to the 5 balconies and was curious about what that would have looked like. I opened a topic guide on Bethesda to see if there was any indication of what the balconies were like but nothing was in the main guide entries that illuminated this. A mockup type drawing is what I was looking for. So then I dug into the all resources collection and started going through the 42 resources listed there.

Periodically, when I would expand a resource to see the relevant article hits, the list would jump up a ways and I would lose my place. This isn't consistent, but it happens enough to be very annoying. I've seen this behavior in the library and understand it a bit there, but in this list it should not be real-time updating once the search is complete. 

It's things like this that can really detract from Logos ability to help me efficiently research something when I end up fighting the program rather than focusing on the resources.

Out of this searching, the Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary was the only resource I had that showed a basic drawing of what the original pool likely looked like. Curious to know of other resources that might have more of this type of thing.

Try a Media Search for Bethesda, selecting Photos and Architectural Images

selecting Photos and Architectural Images

I tried that and there were more images than the topic guide returned for media, but I would still like some better results if there are resources that have more information. Perhaps the new Carta resources will have entries for this. Also, I did not see any options for 'selecting Photos and Architectural Images'. Are these sections? Collections?

Thanks!
