Working with Figures of Speech

Print Friendly and PDF

For over 100 years, countless biblical interpreters have relied on Bullinger's Figures of Speech Used in the Bible: Explained and Illustrated. Logos incorporates these figures of speech into a searchable dataset so you can find any figure of speech addressed in Bullinger and all of the relevant biblical passages.

Note: Available in packages Starter and above.


You can find all of the searchable figures of speech in the Table of Contents of Bullinger's Figures of Speech resource here.

Some example searches using this dataset are:
