Is there a way to trace pronouns through a passage to see who is being referred to? Specifically, which member of the trinity is being talked about?

I find the easiest way to do this is with the information tool.

Open it from the Tools menu.

Then click the pronoun (or other word of interest)

Scroll down for information about who that pronoun refers to

If you use the query  <Person xxxx>, it will pick up referents like pronouns, verbs and some adjectives. If there is doubt about which person in the trinity, though, the referent will be tagged with multiple persons e.g. pronoun "your" in Acts 4.27, Acts 4.30 using <Person God>  INTERSECTS  <Person Holy Spirit>, <Person Jesus>.

A Morph Search for @R INTERSECTS  <Person God>, <Person Holy Spirit>, <Person Jesus> is one way to track pronouns referring to the trinity.

If it's something you'll do regularly, a visual filter document might be useful. Try this one:
