In Matthew 9:33 the crowd says "Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel.” . Is there a way to do a search to find places where other people, in the Gospels,  marveled at what they saw Jesus do or say?

You could try this search. Others may chime in with other search strings as well. There are probably a number of ways to search for this criteria.

{Label Miracle WHERE Agent ~ <Person Jesus>} AND ("Crowd Marveled", "People Marveled", "they Marveled")

Make sure you have Match All Word Forms selected in the search pane This will ensure you catch those places where it says "crowds" rather than just "crowd".

here is a quick one to try

<Sense = to be utterly amazed> OR <Sense = to marvel>

This search is an option, but it will return all occurrences of this sense, regardless of who it was that marveled. For example, at one point Jesus marvels that the unbelief of a crowd

yes, but it is pretty easy to "manually" filter down to the cases you want in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  But if you are a purist, go for all of the extra qualifiers to focus down to those specific cases.  I would rather cast a wide net to get all of the info i am looking for, just my own preference.

<Sense = to be utterly amazed> OR <Sense = to marvel> OR <Sense = to be astounded>

need to filter out the false positives in Matthew, Mark Luke and John.  Kind of tough to add the criteria of <Person Jesus> and not take out too many valid answers.
