Label: Journal article

This label is used to create the Journals section available as an independent Guide and in:

  • Bible Reference Guides
  • Topic Guides
  • Sermon Theme Guides




From Verbum Help

Journal Article

•   References ~ <...> — List of other associated data type references (mostly <Bible ...>)

•   Date ~ <Date ...> — Date data type reference specifying publication data of the article

•   Editor ~ "..." — List of article editors’ names

For example:

•   {Label Journal Article WHERE References ~ <Bible Romans 5> AND Topics ~ <Topic Justification>}

•   {Label Journal Article WHERE Author ~ "F. F. Bruce" AND Date ~ <Date 1980>}[1]


  • {Label Journal Article WHERE Date ~ <Date 1832> AND Title ~ "Review of Rites and Worship of the Early Christian Church" AND Topics ~ <Topic Christian Life> AND Topics ~ <Topic Early Christian Worship>}

Journals Guide with its Searches

For Bible reference

The Journals Guide for a Bible reference shows journal entries on this device. Only the first few articles are returned.

The guide gives the option to find all the articles in a particular journal:

It also provides the option to search all journals.

For topic

Similarly, one can run the Journals Guide on a topic.

Because only the top few results are shown, one has the option to run the complete search on a particular journal.

For the same reason, one can run a complete search on all journals, initiating the search from the Guide.

For preaching theme

Similar options exist for running the Journal Guide on a Preaching Theme:

Search a single journal.

Search all journals.

The most common searches in real life add simple text arguments to narrow result to the precise concept you are researching.
