This post has no new formats of search terms but it does have new types with their corresponding new sources for values. For this set of examples I narrowed my selected text to the direct quotation in John 20:18

1. The first search will be on the speaker labels.

2. The search is in the Extension format {Speaker entity} format ... I almost said Person but there are also speaking things e.g.. animals

3. In Logos Now there is related addressee labels.

4. The same format of the Search extension that was used for "Speaker" is used for "Addressee"

5. The Speaker and Addressee labels are made visible via two Visual filter flags; values are shown in the Context Menu and are drawn from Factbook entries (Biblical entities).

6. The next example is Propositional Outline which is also visible as a visual filter and the right click menu.

7. This search is a compound search which I have split in the normal manner.

8. The Propositional Outline is display via a setting in the Visual Filters. Its values are available in:

  • Keaton, Mark. The Lexham Propositional Outlines Glossary. Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press, 2014.

9. The next example is grammatical construction - available only in the Greek.

10. Again the resulting search is has a compound search argument.

11. Documentation of the available values is available from:

  • Parks, James. Greek Grammatical Constructions Documentation. Bellingham, WA: Faithlife, 2015.

12. The next example is the SGNT syntax force coding.

13. Again a compound search argument is built.

14. The values available are documented in:

  • Lukaszewski, Albert L. The Lexham Syntactic Greek New Testament Glossary. Lexham Press, 2007.

You should be getting the sense that one thing necessary to use the search effectively is to pay attention to the documentation so that you know what tag or label is likely to convey the information you need. One way to do this is to check the actual meaning of the values shown in the Context Menu when it is not self-evident.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
