Approach details

  • In some cases you may want to create a Visual Filter for specific words. But you only want them to appear on specific Bible passages. You can use a regular highlighting pen, but this may be time consuming.
  • There is another way. You can use a Passage List to identify a range of verses in which you want the Visual Filter to look within.
  • Then use the Passage List where you normally see All Passages in your visual filter.
  • This page will walk you through the stages:
    • Making a Passage List
    • Creating the Visual Filter
    • Example: (we will look for specific words in the Gospels pertaining to the Signs of the End of the Age passages)
  • This is just one example, hopefully you get the idea and can apply it where it may be useful.

First create a Passage List

  • Hopefully you are familiar with creating a Passage List. (if not see Passage List wiki)
  • Create a passage list
    a) Click on Documents/File in the top menu.
    b) In the drop down menu, click on Passage List.



    c) Click on the title and rename it to Signs of the End of the Age.



    d) Add the following references (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21:5-38].



Next create a Visual Filter

  • Hopefully you are familiar with creating a Visual Filter. (if not see Visual Filter wiki)
  • Create a visual filter
    a) Click on Documents/File in the top menu.
    b) In the drop down menu, click on Visual Filter.



    c) Click on the title and rename it to End of the Age (cannot be the same name as your Passage List).
    d) Click on All Passages area and in the drop down list find Signs of the End of the Age passage list and click on it.
    e) Click in resource list area and select which Bibles you want to highlight in. (a collection was used here)
    f) Add words to be highlighted and set the highlighting style.



    • Note: it is a better practice to include all words which use the same formatting on the same line (use floating window and Horz. scrollbar).
      For clarity in this example different lines were used to keep the image size small.

Examining the results

  • Open one or more Bible resources (providing that you used multiple Bibles)
  • In the NIV



  • In the NKJV



  • In the ESV
