Is there an easy way to use Logos 6 to identify all the healing narratives in Mark's Gospel?

On the one hand, no. We are working on a dataset for Logos Now that identifies all the miracles in the Bible and categorizes them in various ways (healing narrative among them). Look for that in coming months, ish.

On the other hand, there are some techniques that are more or less easy or more or less correct:

(1) Use the Bible Sense Lexicon to determine a sense vocabulary for healing, and then search Mark's Gospel for it. Doing only a few minutes worth of research, I came up with this search (click on it to run in Logos):

<Sense to heal>,<Sense to cure>,<Sense healing (process)>,<Sense healing (act)>,<Sense to be healed>,<Sense to be cured>,<Sense to repair>

(2) I also tried healing NEAR <Mark> in all my resources, which lead me to Wilmington's Book of Bible Lists, which lists all the miracles of Christ. The search terms highlighted the healings in Mark. (Your library may vary.)

I hope that helps!

Bible Search for heal with match all word forms finds:

Bible Search for three roots found many in Mark.

<Root = lbs/el/θεραπων>,<Root = lbs/el/σωζω>,<Root = lbs/el/καθαρος>

Milestone search for heal within Mark (using a collection without Bibles):

heal WITHIN {Milestone <Mark>}
