I have setup a new Passage List for sharing passage list documents.

https://faithlife.com/logos-passage-lists/about

I've kicked it off by adding passage lists for Words of Christ and OT Quotes by Jesus.  See this thread for details about how these two passage lists were created.

Would you explain the advantage of having this list installed? ... As opposed to just checking the box for "Words of Christ" on the search page.

Paul C:

Paul in the post mentioned above someone asked how they could view all of the Words of Christ.  The only way to do this using the WOC search field is to conduct a wild card search. This is a non-optimized search and for me on my older computer whenever I try to run such a search it inevitably results in Logos crashing I never reach the end of the search to get an output.  

Having a passage list with all the verses simply allows you to review the list of all verses without first having to run a search to identify the verses. The OP, rather than having to run a wild card search, which takes a reasonable time if your computer is able to handle it, can simply open the passage list and have all of the verses available immediately in multiple study sessions.  And of course you can run a search against this passage list or merge it with another passage list.  For example to get the list of Jesus quotes to the OT this list was constructed by merge the Words of Christ Passage List with a Passage List of all OT Quotes.  In a search scenario you could search this passage lists to find all occurrences of the Jesus usage of a particular greek word.

Thanks so much for taking the time to explain. I "assumed" the software would do this out of the box. I didn't see the benefit of having 3000 verses duplicated. Now I do. Thanks again. God Bless
