Search in the Books


Search is simple: just type whatever comes to mind in the search box, hit Enter or click on the Search button, and the system will search the revelations for documents that are relevant to your query.

Most of the time you'll find exactly what you were looking for with just a basic query. However the following tips can help you refine your technique to make the most of your searches. Throughout the article, we'll use square brackets [ ] to signal queries, so [ black and white ] is one query, while [ black ] and [ white ] are two.

Every word matters.

Generally, all the words you put in the query will be used. There are some exceptions.

Case sensitivity

Search is always case insensitive. Searching for [ jesus ] is the same as searching for [ JESUS ].

Wildcard Search (*)

With the wildcard search it is possible to search for certain parts of a word. e.g. [god*] searches for all words beginning with "god".

Phrase search ("")

By putting double quotes around a set of words, you are telling the Search to consider the exact words in that exact order without any change.

Terms you want to exclude (-)

Attaching a minus sign immediately before a word indicates that you do not want documents that contain this word to appear in your results. The minus sign should appear immediately before the word and should be preceded with a space. For example, in the query [ jesus-christ ], the minus sign is used as a hyphen and will not be interpreted as an exclusion symbol; whereas the query [ jesus-christ -satan ] will search for the words 'jesus-christ' but exclude references to satan. You can exclude as many words as you want by using the - sign in front of all of them, for example [ jesus -satan -hell ].

Search within a specific region (:)

In the search, certain regions can be defined to which the results are restricted. All regions can also be selected via the search mask. By entering ":revelation", the search results are limited to the Book of Revelation.

For example, to find all entries for "Jesus" from the Book of Revelation enter the following:
