What are some of the tools you use to create an exegetical outline with Logos? Also are there any good resources to check your work?

Greetings Robert

Welcome to the forums.

Logos has two guides that might be helpful the eponymously named 'Exegetical Guide' and probably more useful 'Passage Guide'. There are various tutorial videos about which is best for which purpose.

Have a work through them and come back if you find anything you don't understand or cannot accomplish.

How to get logs and post them. (now tagging post-apocalyptic fiction as current affairs)

The Outline Section on the Passage Guide provides plenty of exegetical outlines.  Most commentaries have them also.  You can rework them or build your own.

Which of the outline resources do you feel would be best for exegetical outlines, beyond just a basic book-overview-outline?

ZECNT outlines are great and MacArthur commentary has outlines that are somewhere between exegetical and homiletical. Also Lexham Context Commentaries are heavily outlined.

Is the question, to create or just copy?

Get ideas or recreate to make it better 👍 

PS.  BTW, I got this idea from a Learn Logos course title: “How to Outline Any Passage.” http://www.learnlogos.com/how2outline_p/how2outline.htm 

He didn’t actually teach you how to do it; it was more of a “one way to do it is by looking at the outlines that are already found in the software (which varies depending on the size of your library).

He recommended this resource for OT book outlines which is very thorough: https://www.logos.com/product/39605/the-literary-structure-of-the-old-testament-a-commentary-on-genesis-malachi

I realize they were added later and are not inspired, but...

I look at paragraph indention in both Greek and English Translations.

I look for repetition of words or parallelism of structure

I use the Discourse Filters (use to be HDNT resources) to see what is bold.

I use the visualizations found in the Passage Guide

If you truly mean exegetical outline rather than generic outline, I find Blomberg, Craig L., and Jennifer Foutz Markley. A Handbook of New Testament Exegesis. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Academic, 2010. to have good instructions on how to go from one to the other.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
