Greek Sentence Diagram: From Bibleworks to Logos

Randy Leedy is known as the “NT Greek Guy” (that’s actually the name of his website) whose work in Greek sentence diagramming was previously published in BibleWorks. Although BibleWorks sadly no longer exists as a company, Randy’s sentence diagram work has found a new home in Logos Bible Software (did you know Logos 9 is out now?).

The importance of sentence diagramming as a tool in analyzing the Greek New Testament may have been lost to you during your seminary or undergraduate studies. Which is a shame, because diagramming is invaluable when approaching those long, complex, multiple-sub-clause monsters found in the more prolific NT authors.

In fact, if you’re in doubt about the value of sentence diagramming, and your name isn’t Daniel Wallace or Robert Plummer, perhaps it’s time to reconsider your position; they both endorse Randy’s work.

The added perk of having this resource in Logos is integration with the rest of your Logos platform. Check out the sample pages at the link below, which give a good idea of how to implement this work and sentence diagram into your biblical study workflow.

  • Hello Travis,
    Is this not a wonderful resource?! Incidentally, I noticed that BibleWorks (10) released a couple of patch updates earlier in October (around 10/20/2020, if I am not mistaken).

  • Diagramming Greek sentences is a laborious process with untold rewards for the labor intensive effort. Diagramming unlocks so many nuances that just don’t come through otherwise.

    • Hi Tim,
      Yes, diagramming sentences has proven to be a vital means of interpreting the text of Scripture (both Hebrew and Greek). I don’t often use Logos, as I still use Bibleworks 10+ and Accordance 13+. However, the Logos layout looks very nice indeed. I do use it for some historical and exegetical books. Having completed all my course, comp exams, and additional languages in my PhD program (Theology and Apologetics – Biblical Studies/Cognates), my dissertation area is in Cyril of Alexandria (Patristics).
      Blessings

  • Think of being a doctor of medicine without understanding the anatomy of how the body works. Now think of being a pastor-teacher without understanding how the anatomy of a NT book works (its head, body, and feet). Sentence diagraming is to the pastor-teacher what anatomy is to the medical doctor. A correct and precise diagnosis of a complex system is at stake.
