The class, Advanced Bible Searches NEAR shows you how to use the search NEAR function in theWord. This function will allow searching for situations where the word "Son" "Christ" are within so many words or verses of each other, but not necessarily next to each other. This is a very powerful function that is totally lacking in other Bible programs. You "loosely" search for two words or phrases that are just "near each other."
