Can someone point me to a resource that will teach me more about the search parameters I can use with the search command? For example, if I do a word study, using the "right click" option over a particular word, this (see below) is what Logos automatically entered into the search box...

<lemma = lbs/el/θέλημα>

That's pretty cool, however, I have no idea what the "lbs/el" stands for - and I'd love to know. 

Here's another example of what I'd like to learn... If I wanted to search the N.T. for "God's will" or "will of God" is there a way to narrow the search results down to just the instances where the two words "God" and "will" appear in close proximity to one another, thereby excluding a lot of verses that don't apply to my study?

Do I make sense (first cup of coffee over here)?

Thanks!

http://wiki.logos.com/Detailed_Search_Help will answer all your questions and more.

lbs/el is explained in the Searching_for_Bible_Verses_and_other_References section.

As to your specific search, the section on Phrases and Proximity Operators should help there.
