I am trying to learn how to do better searches in Logos and wanted to seek some guidance on a specific search.  I am studying the Prodigal Son and specifically Luke 15:30 where the older son states:

30 But when this son of yours came, who has devoured your property with prostitutes, you killed the fattened calf for him! (ESV)

I have the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary in hardcopy and the commentary discusses the implications of the accusation and quotes Deuteronomy 21:18–21 which talks about stoning a rebellious son.

Going through my individual commentaries and resources I could not find any reference to Deut 21:18-21 while studying Luke 15:30.  I would like to do an everything search to see if I can find any resources that link those 2 scriptures together and gives further discussion.  The main reason for the search is I like the ZIBB and am not ready to buy the Logos resources yet so I want to see what other resources I have that dig as deep into the verse that Zondervan did.

I appreciate any search ideas you can provide. :)

Thanks,,,,,Bill

You should use the search <Deut 21:18-21> WITHIN {Milestone <Luke 15:30>}. I found a handful of references:

Using Mark's search above there is one more resource that can be added:

Jon Courson's Application Commentary (My Three Sons (Lk 15:25-32) )

At first sight of him, the father did something Aristotle declared no man of dignity would ever do publicly: He ran. It’s the only time in the entire Bible where God the Father is seen as being in a hurry.
And when his son drew near, the father smothered him with hugs and kisses—not only out of affection, but for protection. You see, Deuteronomy 21 makes it clear that if a son was stubborn and rebellious, a glutton and a drunkard—as was the prodigal—he was to be stoned (Deuteronomy 21:18–21). Thus, I suggest that in hugging his son, the father was essentially saying, “No one is going to lay a hand on him.”
“Put the best robe on him,” the father said. Whose would the best robe be? The father’s.
