Hi All,


I've looked around and can't seem to find it, so maybe you can help me--I imagine I'm probably just missing how to do this. Is it possible to "Research" a something by BOTH the word AND the scripture passage reference?


For example: I've started a series on 1 Cor. 13. We are looking at each of the adjectives and adjectival phrases that Paul uses to describe "Love". Last week we looked at "Love is patient." (1 Cor. 13:4), and this week we are looking at "Love is kind." I want to be able to "Research" from all my resources the word "kind" (and/or the Greek equivalent), AND I want to ONLY look at the resources that specifically look at this word "kind" in the context of 1 Cor. 13:4.


Currently, I can see how to "research" all the occurrences of 1 Cor. 13:4 (although I'm having trouble with that too, because I currently don't want to include reference which "include" 1 Cor. 13:4--like "1 Cor. 11-14"--I only want 1 Cor. 13:4 specifically), and I can see how to look up the word "kind" (although again, I'm having trouble there too--because I want to look up the specific word meant by the Greek and translated as "kind", but many of my English resources don't include the Greek word in them, so I have to look up "kind" and therefore get all kinds of results, like the "kinds" of animals and so on that are completely irrelevant...). But I can't (getting back to the point), currently figure out how to search for the word "kind" in 1 Cor. 13:4 among my resources.


So, is there a way to do this, good folks? If so, could you please help me?


Thanks so much in advance...

You cannot do this with the research feature. You can only do this when searching a specific resource.

But it's been asked about before and it would useful :http://www.accordanc...earch-searching


The problem is in determining which modules have which fields available I suspect . I recall a post speculating on that some time back but cannot locate it.
