Philo or Philippians???
Posted 02 December 2007 - 02:07 PM
When doing a scripture search in BDAG for any verse in Philippians chapter 4 (all other chapters have been working fine) it also pulls up all references to Philo. Also, when I scroll over those Philo references, the instant details box brings up Philippians 4:1 every time instead of info on Philo. I didn't see any topics about this on the forums and I checked for updates, etc. Could be a bug but I am not that tech savvy so I posted it here. Sounds like Philo got linked to Phil 4:1 somehow. Please advise.

You might look at the results difference if you add a second search field under "More options"
Is there any kind of workaround I could use until the revision comes out - some way to eliminate Philo from the results or something?
Search within every paragraph
NOT English Content philo
That will ignore all hits where Philo is mentioned in the paragraph. This could conceivably remove actual references to Philipians 4, and will certainly still leave some references to Philo.

You missed the point. Look more closely at the search I suggested... perhaps it's a feature you're unfamiliar with.
Unfortunately Philo is always abbreviated as "Phil" so I think that would cut out all references to "Phil"ippians as well. Oh well, I am just glad it is only this chapter that has the problem. I have used this feature so much in translating the book for class that I have become dependent on it! Thanks for the suggestion.
The second search criteria searches not the Scripture field but the english content discussions, etc. Philo isn't abbreviated in the discussion portions. I'd bet you that the search will cut a third or so of the hits.

If I am still missing something, please let me know.

All I was saying is that you could (using the above search), find all scripture links to Phillipians (and Philo) where "Philo" was not discussed in the same paragraph. As I said, this is not especially helpful, since it will also skip legitimate references to Philippians.
