Try {Speaker <Person Jesus>} WITHIN {Section <Sentence ~ Interrogative>}

You should be able to get the structure by opening a blank Search window and scrolling down in the examples to the section on "Sentence Types of the New Testament" and clicking on the one about Jesus asking questions. Unfortunately, the example shown is incorrect!

One search for questions Jesus asked is => https://ref.ly/logos4/Search?kind=BibleSearch&q=%7bSection+%3cSentence+%3d+Interrogative%3e%7d+INTERSECTS+%7bSpeaker+%3cPerson+Jesus%3e%7d&match=stem&in=raw%3aCollection%7cCollectionName%3dCollectionId%253d3ce3b8b4-ecfa-4048-8346-7ae9af45c1d9%257cTitle%253dBible%252520Compare%252520English%7cResourceType%3dtext.monograph.bible

{Section <Sentence = Interrogative>} INTERSECTS {Speaker <Person Jesus>}

Interrogative search can be expanded to questions God asked => https://ref.ly/logos4/Search?kind=BibleSearch&q=%7bSection+%3cSentence+%3d+Interrogative%3e%7d+INTERSECTS+(%7bSpeaker+%3cPerson+God%3e%7d+OR+%7bSpeaker+%3cPerson+Jesus%3e%7d+OR+%7bSpeaker+%3cPerson+Holy+Spirit%3e%7d)&match=stem&in=raw%3aCollection%7cCollectionName%3dCollectionId%253d3ce3b8b4-ecfa-4048-8346-7ae9af45c1d9%257cTitle%253dBible%252520Compare%252520English%7cResourceType%3dtext.monograph.bible

{Section <Sentence = Interrogative>} INTERSECTS ({Speaker <Person God>} OR {Speaker <Person Jesus>} OR {Speaker <Person Holy Spirit>})

Sentence Type search is a new feature for Logos 7 and Verbum 7 => New Feature: Sentence Types of the New Testament Dataset and => New Feature: Sentence Types of the Old Testament Dataset that can be purchased in a Feature Set or Essential Upgrade OR subscribed via Now membership or Cloud subscription. Speaker searching was a new feature in Logos 6 and Verbum 6 => Speaker Searching

Propositional Outlines => Propositional Bible Outlines Dataset (Logos 6 new feature) and => New Feature: Old Testament Propositional Bible Outlines (Logos 7 new feature) provides another search => https://ref.ly/logos4/Search?kind=BibleSearch&q=(%7bSection+%3cPropositionalOutline+%3d+Question%3e%7d+OR+%7bSection+%3cPropositionalOutline+%3d+Question+(No)%3e%7d+OR+%7bSection+%3cPropositionalOutline+%3d+Question+(Yes)%3e%7d)+INTERSECTS+(%7bSpeaker+%3cPerson+God%3e%7d+OR+%7bSpeaker+%3cPerson+Jesus%3e%7d+OR+%7bSpeaker+%3cPerson+Holy+Spirit%3e%7d)&match=stem&in=raw%3aCollection%7cCollectionName%3dCollectionId%253da4860e4b-7474-4c23-b18c-f528883ce5e9%257cTitle%253dBible%252520Compare%252520Interlinear%7cResourceType%3dtext.monograph.bible

({Section <PropositionalOutline = Question>} OR {Section <PropositionalOutline = Question (No)>} OR {Section <PropositionalOutline = Question (Yes)>}) INTERSECTS ({Speaker <Person God>} OR {Speaker <Person Jesus>} OR {Speaker <Person Holy Spirit>})

One more search is looking for words frequently used in questions within Words of Christ => https://ref.ly/logos4/Search?kind=BibleSearch&q=if%2c+how%2c+however%2c+what%2c+where%2c+when%2c+who%2c+whoever%2c+whom%2c+why&match=stem&in=raw%3aCollection%7cCollectionName%3dCollectionId%253de2205799-4441-49b7-acf2-c71858384f61%257cTitle%253dEnglish%252520Bibles%7cResourceType%3dtext.monograph.bible

if, how, however, what, where, when, who, whoever, whom, why

Word of Christ search is usable in Basic (free)

Yet one more search idea is articles about Jesus question => https://ref.ly/logos4/Search?kind=BasicSearch&q=Jesus+NEAR+questions&match=stem&in=raw%3aAll%7cTitle%3dAll%2520Resources

Jesus NEAR questions

Screen shot shows results in two resources:

=> The Red Letter Questions: Meditations on the Questions Jesus Asked

=> The Way of the Lord Jesus (3 vols.)

If you have it, the Bible Browser can accomplish many of these queries in a few clicks.

Thanks for all the replies. They were very helpful! But is there a way to account for the questions in the parallel passages? For instance, Matthew 12:3; Mark 2:25; Luke 6:3 are parallel passages where Jesus asked the question about David and his men eating the showbread. In my count, this would be one question Jesus asked instead of three, since it is three versions of the same question. Is Logos able to do that or will I have to sort through the parallels manually?

Fascinating questionSmile

But - as far as I know - Logos is not able to filter in this way so you will need to sort it through for yourself

One of the challenges - apart from the technical ones - of Logos doing this is there are some edge cases where there is debate over whether passages in different Gospels are actually parallels and so Logos taking a view on that could be quite difficult for them.
