How do I search for "ὁ Χριστὸς" across all declensions?

e.g. a search that will pick up "ὁ Χριστὸς" as well as, say τοῦ Χριστοῦ and all the other possibilities.

Right-click Χριστὸς, and choose Lemma | Search this resource.

It will create the search based on the lemma, i.e.: <Lemma = lbs/el/Χριστός>

To add to what Allen Browne said, after you search for the ξριστος lemma, make another search for the ὁ lemma, the cut and paste one lemma onto the other search and search for both together.

This approach is like spitting; inelegant, but satisfying.

Jack,

If you meant: <Lemma = lls/el/ὁ><Lemma = lls/el/Χριστός>

this didn't work.

Allen, what about the definite article?

Does this get you what you are looking for:

lemma:ὁ WITHIN 0 WORD lemma:Χριστός

John,

No cigar. Neither with <Lemma = lls/el/ὁ> WITHIN 0 WORD <Lemma = lls/el/Χριστός>

Sorry: missed the "the".

<Lemma = lbs/el/ὁ> BEFORE 1 WORD <Lemma = lbs/el/Χριστός>

Yes, that works. Thanks Allen.

Morph Search alternative for the definite article (along with allowing for a word in between):

@D BEFORE 2 WORDS lemma:Χριστός

includes Matthew 1:16 and 27:22 along with some false positives: e.g. Romans 3:24

Considering a preposition having similar definiteness as the definite article, another morph search is:

(@D OR @P) BEFORE 2 WORDS lemma:Χριστός

If you locate an instance of ὁ Χριστὸς in your Greek NT (e.g., John 10:24), you can select it and run a morph search on the phrase from the context menu. It will build the search as lemma:ὁ BEFORE 4 CHARS lemma:Χριστός. That's basically equivalent to lemma:ὁ BEFORE 1 WORD lemma:Χριστός. A quote search for the simpler "lemma:ὁ lemma:Χριστός" will yield the same results.

I'd do a syntax search like the below, which I've published to the Faithlife "Logos Syntax Searching" group, which should allow you to grab a copy of the query and run it locally (here: https://faithlife.com/logos-syntax-searching/documents )

Basically, this finds a phrase that has a determiner (definite article) and a word within the phrase following the determiner that matches in case, number, and gender with the determiner ("Terminal Node 1"). Also, the word matches the 'instance' of word that is the phrase head term (thus we know it is the thing the determiner modifies).

With results like this:
