I'm sure this has been asked in one way or another many times before, but until you need something, you just don't pay attention...

Okay, I've run a search in the TLJ journals for a particular scripture reference. Now I want to narrow my search by searching the previous hits with a particular phrase. How do I do this second part?

Thanks.

Open More Options in the Tool window and add a search field, specify the new field you want to search, and the criteria such as the phrase, and click OK.

For example: TJL-BibSac,
Search Scripture for Matt 5 gives 543 hits
AND search Author for Thiessen gives 10 hits
AND search English Content for Abrahamic blessing gives 4 hits

Limiting the AND to a paragraph instead of an article (in the pop-up-menu) narrows the search further by requiring all criteria to fall in the same paragraph (which Author clearly does not).
