In Logos 3 Exegetical Studies it is possible to simply click the Greek Strong's number of an individual word to get a list of every occurrence of that Greek (or Hebrew) word in a chosen Bible.

This is a facility which I use constantly, perhaps more than any other, but I have not found a way of doing this easily in Logos 4, if at all.

Is there a similar EASY way or could we add this to the list of requests for the future.

ALSO: I really want the facility to save word lists in as soon as possible because often when I have a worked on a list of occurences (above) I save that to a word list in Logos 3. For words like 'sarx' with many variations in translations it is great.

Blessings for a great programme.

Bill

Bill,

you're right...it's not exactly the same in L3 as in L3.

I'm not sure if you're aware that you can right-click on any word in the ESV and choose  the Strong's number and search that resource....

 

Can't help you on the copy a word list thing...I'm waiting for that also.

On the current beta; you can export the results of a search to excel.

Bill...

 Can I ask a question?

Why is it exactly that you want to use Greek Strong's numbers?

Wouldn't searching the actual Greek be the same thing and essentially "cutting out that middle step?

Hi Robert,

I use this facility in Logos 3 when I want to see the way in which a Greek/ Hebrew word has been translated in other places. Words like 'sarx' 'phusis' are not translated literally in some translations. If I am doing an exegetical study I simply have to click the Strong's number to get a full print out of every occurance. If I want to keep it for further use I can copy all of the references to a verse list within Logos 3 or into a document I am working on.

I haven't studied Greek or Hebrew and so working in the original language is difficult. There is also a big learning curve with Logos 4, even with the two MS training manuals which I have.

Regards, Bill

Bill,

I understand; I'm a newbie to Greek and just about foreign completely to Hebrew.

I've been teaching myself for about 2 years now...but it's very slow going...believe me.

I THINK that you don't have to know (really know) the Original languages to take advantage of Logos 4 tools, and you can "cut out the middle man" in your word studies...the right-click Bible word study is one way or the right click search this resource is another way...

To each his own....if you need anymore help; let me know...we are all learning...
