Hello.
I'm trying to create a search where the results give me all the times Jesus says thanks or talks about thanksgiving but I'm not having any luck. I can find with {speaker <person jesus>} where he says thanks, but not passages in narrative.I assume I need an intersects command, but I'm not sure how to find the rest. Topic?

What do you mean by this? I'm afraid I'm missing what additionally you are trying to do

Hi Graham

I'd like to perform a search that returns results of Jesus speaking about thanks (all forms) or is giving thanks such as when feeding the 5k (when he is not actually speaking).

Thanks

In Mark's account Jesus is recorded as saying a blessing - and the sense is "to bless (favor)". So a Sense search might be helpful here

Does it give you what you want if you combine this with the previous one?

I'll do some exploring and see. I had thought maybe a 'sense' of thanks would work in some way so this is as much about learning more advanced searching as getting these particular results.

Thanks!
