jonathan:

Welcome, Jonathan!

Try a Basic Search for All Text in the Book of Acts using this query (<PreachingTheme = Miracles>, {Section <PreachingTheme = Miracles>})

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

International Standard Version. (2011). (Lk 2:52). Yorba Linda, CA: ISV Foundation.

Right click on a word where a miracle occurs e.g. in Acts 3:6, and look on the RHS for an appropriate item, expanding those with a small arrow against them. You should find items like Miracles (Preaching Theme), and Miracle (Label). Select it and choose a Search from the LHS.

You should get

  • (<PreachingTheme = Miracles>, {Section <PreachingTheme = Miracles>}), which can be simplified to {Section <PreachingTheme = Miracles>}, as the other term doesn't provide any results.
  • {Label Miracle WHERE Agent ~ <Person Peter> AND Audience ~ <Person Crowd at Solomon’s Portico> AND Patient ~ <Person Healed Lame Man> AND Title ~ "Peter Heals a Man Lame from Birth" AND Type ~ "Healing"}, which can be simplified to {Label Miracle}, as you want all miracles.

You can combine those two with {Section <PreachingTheme = Miracles>} OR {Label Miracle} 

Instead of All Passages, click to enter Acts as your bible book.
