I made a visual filter to double-underline every allusion to the OT. I am relying on the Logos literary typing tool to determine if a verse is an allusion or not. It is handy for me to see allusions in my Bible.

Problem: When I see a verse that is double-underlined, I know it is an allusion. This is great. However, what if I want to find out what it is an allusion to? I can select a verse, the context menus will tell me that it is an allusion ... but how do I quickly find out more? 

As a quick example, Mark 13.19 is an OT allusion. My visual filter caught it. When I select the verse, the context menu tells me. Why can't I quickly find out what the literary typing tool says Mark 13.19 alludes to?

Basically, all I want is for allusions to be a part of my regular Bible study.

Thank you.

I would like to study this as well.

You will have to rely on Intertext entries in the Context menu:

.

Expand the initial "bullet" to see Intertext entries. Each entry for Mt 2:11 above states that it is an Echo (when you hover).

I think you will find an Intertext entry for all your Visual filter results, but you will see differences in interpretation.

(I assume you use {Section <LiteraryTyping =  Allusion, Old Testament>})

You can also use the Information tool as Intertext entries appear under Other References (you have to scroll down usually).

Dave, this is quite helpful. Not sure why I could not sort this out. Thank you.

Yet, I cannot directly open Ps 72.10-11 from the contextual menu, which seems a bit baffling.

The bible reference is part of the Intertext information that is used in a Search. You can open it from the Information tool, though.

You can also incorporate from the passage guide a concordance section and set it for inter text. Here is a screenshot:

Note the passage guide is linked to the main bible tab and will show whenever there is any intertextual connections. Just an alternative way to see intertextual items.
