I have this search (found elsewhere on these forums):

{Speaker <Person Jesus>} WITHIN {Section <LiteraryType Quotation, Old Testament>}

that gives me a list of passages where Jesus quotes from the OT and I was able to generate a nice chart from it using the new chart feature. I'm wondering if it's possible for me to write a search that gives me the OT verses that Jesus is quoting from?

Hi Jason - and welcome to the forums

Jason O'Conal:

The search below should do it - note it is specifying Words of Christ in the search options as opposed to all biblical text. But it doesn't seem to work, it is as though that filter doesn't have any effect when doing Intertext searching (unless I am missing something)

In the absence of that, you could use the Interactive NT Use of the OT and just select those words spoken by Jesus

Great! Thanks for your help, Graham. Using the NT Use of the OT tool is just what I needed.

Fields are ignored for extension { } searches. This form of {Label Intertext} is searching the OT, so it would only be affected by a range of OT passages instead of All Passages. The Target  range is limited as Target ~ <Mt-Jn> would not be restricted to the words of Christ. So the interactive is the best way.
