I am trying to determine where Jesus has quoted an OT prophet.  I have gone to Tools/Interactive Media/New Testament Use of the Old Testament, and I have selected the “About” button where I learned about the “Label Intertext” feature.  I have used that feature to assemble the following Bible Search -

({Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Isaiah>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Jeremiah>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Ezekiel>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Daniel>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Hosea>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Joel>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Amos>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Obadiah>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Jonah>}  OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Micah>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Nahum>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Habakkuk>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Zephaniah>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Haggai>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Zechariah>} OR {Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Malachi>}) INTERSECTS {Speaker <Person Jesus>}

It works.  But is there a more elegant way?

(I wondered if I could use Louw-Nida, but there are several OT prophets that are not listed in that lexicon.)

Try

{Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Is-Mal>}) INTERSECTS {Speaker <Person Jesus>}

Graham Criddle:

Try

{Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Is-Mal>}) INTERSECTS {Speaker <Person Jesus>}

Graham, you have a minor error.

({Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Is-Mal>}) INTERSECTS {Speaker <Person Jesus>} or simply:

{Label Intertext WHERE Source~<Is-Mal>} INTERSECTS {Speaker <Person Jesus>}

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

That is definitely more elegant.  Thanks to both of you.
