Is there a list of all the "Person" tags that refer to Christ in Logos? For instance, I know of the following...

<Person Jesus>

<Person Deliverer of Israel>

<Person Anointed One in Psalms>

<Person Anointed One in Habakkuk>

<Person Anointed One in Lamentations>

What are the others?

No.

A <Person Christ> search does not get results in the OT.  So the "Anointed One" persons do not refer directly to Christ (<Person God> is the closest), whilst "Anointed One in Habakkuk" does not refer to any person in the Godhead. Any list would be subjective.

Is there a list somewhere of all the debated references to Christ (along with Logos tags) that one could peruse through and look for oneself?

Probably not. It's probably not a good idea to debate something that is so subjective anyway.

Many of the Old Testament passages we may see as referencing Jesus is likely a result of our perspective today. The first goal of Bible study should be to understand what the original author's intent and understanding was when he wrote it.

There isn't an official Logos dataset with this information. But you probably have a few resources that will have lists of Messianic prophecies. Just searching for prophecies messiah should find several. Here's one from the NKJV Study Bible:

Thanks Mark. It may be helpful if I clarify a bit more what I'm trying to do. I'm using the "INTERSECTS" search criteria in order to find all the times Jesus is referred to as "king" in the Bible. So far I've connected all the "Person" tag references to Christ with the "OR" criteria. I've only found 2 OT references, not sure if there are more.

Hi John, What I had to do to get around this was to create my own "tag - person - Christ". When I come across a reference as I read through my bible or during study that I think meets my criteria to a Christ reference, I use my created tag. This way I create a searchable list that I can use that Logos has not specifically tagged in this way. You will find the Label feature in Highlighting.

Thanks Jo Ann. I still think that it would be nice to have a Logos list of references to Christ and "potential" references to Christ in the OT.

I'm not sure if this is exhaustive, but it should be a good start: <Person Jesus> OR <Person Christ> OR <Person Son Of Man> OR <Person Anointed Prince> OR <Person Davidic Ruler> OR <Person Deliverer of Israel> OR <Person Pierced Servant> OR <Person Anointed One in Psalms> OR <Person Anointed One in Habakkuk> OR <Person Anointed One in Lamentations>.

We created a Messianic Prophecies data set that's probably closer to what you're looking for. It's available in Bible Browser, but it doesn't look like it got integrated into the context menu or information panel. You can search it, though: {Label Messianic Prophecy}. Check out the documentation resource to learn more about how to search it.

I created a Messianic Prophecies Data Set passage list with the 164 passages in that data set, which you can find in the Public tab of the Docs panel or grab from the Logos Documents website. You can use a passage list as a filtered view in your Bible through the Visual Filters menu under Passage Lists.

You could also search for the preaching theme for prophecy's about Jesus: (<PreachingTheme = Prophecy: Jesus>, {Section <PreachingTheme = Prophecy: Jesus>}).

You could also search for Psalms tagged as Messianic: {Label Psalm WHERE Tag ~ "Messianic"}. You can also browse for them in Bible Browser.

Phil, this is very helpful! Thanks so much, I'll get to exploring these different options.
