In the Gospel of John, ego eimi is significant. How can I use Logos to search John for all instances of ego eimi?

Thank you!

If looking for the manuscript phrase, search a Greek NT bible using  "ἐγώ εἰμι" (with the quote marks).

For other possibilities use lemma:ἐγώ  BEFORE 1 WORDS lemma:εἰμί

Quoting and searching the Greek NT does work (Thank you!).

Is there a way to do this search in a Bible with a NT interlinear (such as the NRSV)?

Dan,

Dave Hooton's second method will work for Bibles with reverse interlinears. Choose a "morph search" and input the following:

lemma:ἐγώ BEFORE 1 WORDS lemma:ἐιμί.

Also, using the "lemma:" command will allow you to simply type in transliteration and select the appropriate word from the dropdown box:

lemma:egw BEFORE 1 WORDS lemma:eimi.

Dave Hooton:
For other possibilities use lemma:ἐγώ  BEFORE 1 WORDS lemma:εἰμί

lemma:ἐγώ  WITHIN 1 WORDS lemma:εἰμί

includes verses like John 7:34 albeit John 18:37 crosses a sentence boundary.

Keep Smiling Smile

Excellent! Thank you!

ego eimi is significant in the original Greek and searching for it in a reverse interlinear will give results for eimi ego because Greek word order is reversed to align with the translation e.g. Jn 3:28, Jn 7:34, 36. If you want to see the result in a RI then do the following:-

Another effect of changing word order is that a translation will give results like Jn 1:20.
