What do you mean by finding a Heading?

  • Can’t remember the book or passage reference to what you are looking for?
  • You can use Search to search for that word. But you might have to sort through many scripture hits.
  • But you think you remember a word that might be in one of the Headings... (e.g. see image below)

  • Did you know that you can search just through the headings/pericopes in most Bibles?
  • Well this is possible. And often returns fewer hits and can help you find your passage faster.

How to Search Headings

  • Say that we want to find the scripture headings for Jesus tells the hour and day are unknown in the NIV Bible.
  • Open a Search window
    Then ....
    1. Click on Basic for the search type.
    2. Select the Bible from the resource list.
    3. Click on the search area parameter (this may show as All Text)
    4. In the drop down menu click on the arrow to the left of Search Fields to expand it.
    5. Click on Large Text (not shown below) and also click on Heading Text (if you don’t see this field, see Why don’t I see Headings).

    6. Now say we remember the word hour might be in the heading.
      So enter the word hour in the Find box and press Enter.
    7. When Logos finishes the search, we see that there are two headings found in the NIV Bible.

    8. Now you can click on one of the headings and Logos will open that Bible to that heading.

    • Obviously you can choose a different Bible version. Give it a try!
    • Do you have a collection of Bibles? If so, try changing the resource from a Bible to your collection of Bibles.

If you are not finding your word

  • Make sure that you have Match all word forms enabled in the Search window
    a) Click on the Search window’s icon.
    b) Click to check Match all word forms.

    c) Then run your search again.

Why don’t I see Headings in the Search Field?

  • Make sure that you are using the Basic search method!
  • Not all Bible resources have Heading as a valid search field.
