In logos 3, I could enter Basic search and look for every place in a collection or entire library where the verse 1 Cor. 15:50 occurred.  In the searc field I entered bible="1 Cor. 15:50"

When I do that in Logos 4 I get some references to exactly 1 Cor. 15:50 places where the word "bible" is used. (not 1 Cor. 15:50-53, or whatever like I did in Logos 3). I am not sure that I am getting all passage which include the verse I am looking for.  Am I using the right syntax in the search query. I can find nothing in the forums, tutorials, or help files on this basic point.

Have you tried the "Cited By" tool (Tools>Cited By -  under 'Lookup' bottom right)? It is designed to do just what you're wanting, though it may not do it in the way you want.
