Well  this may be a stupid question. But I'm new to E- Sword and just downloaded it. I looked on YouTube at a couple of video's but still kind of lost about some of it. I would like to know if I can do Topical searches in E-Sword. like doing one on say , Salvation or backsliding and finding what verses or chapters are relevant to that subject. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks  Greg

The topic of Salvation (Soteriology) is very controversial:
See the acronyms DAISY, ROSES and TULIP or anything between in the discussions about it.

Method 1: Look to the verses that contain those Strong numbers and use a literal translation:
For example search with the KJV+ to those Strong numbers for a list move to the verse number to see the tooltip popup.
Go to options and Scripture Tooltip select then (Active Translation) then can you see the Tooltip popup of your favorite translation that is selected in the Bible-taps.

Hi Greg,

First, let me congratulate you on your choice of Bible (study) software. 

 

e-Sword is perhaps one of the easiest Bible programs anyone can use. Admittedly it doesn't have all the bells and whistles some other Bible programs have, but in what it can do, e-Sword punches above its waist in comparison to Bible study programs (App(lication)s).

 

That said, when it comes to e-Sword's search engines, it will do just about anything most other built-in search engines in other Bible study programs will do. Maybe not as good, but certainly will give you the best results that its been designed for. So, for example, if you want to (pick on one of your search examples) do a search on backsliding, then you would choose words, i.e., synonyms used in relation to that word in the Bible search. Moreover, you can also save that search, and also create a "topical" word list about backsliding, or any other topic you may wish to create.

 

With that said, to the extent you can use e-Sword is only limited to your imagination.. So with that, the bounds you can go with e-Sword is entirely up to you.

 

Oh yeah, I just remembered. Check also the e-Sword User Guide, and it will give you a great deal of information how you can use e-Sword's Search engine. Also in the last chapter of the User Guide, read Chapter 22: Searching e-Sword Using Regular Expressions.

 

Trust this has helped you.

 

Blessings,

WOW, that's more of an explanation than I expected. Thank you for taking the time to write all of that. That certainly is most helpful.
