2. Add keywords, Bible passages, and topics/tags to narrow your search.

Note: Generally speaking, when adding search terms, start broad (e.g., “1 John 3” rather than “1 John 3:22”). Search will show only results that meet all search types (i.e., Keywords, Bible passages, Topics/Tags), so only include necessary search terms.

 

3. Arrange the results.

You can sort your results in the top right-hand corner of the webpage.
