Awhile back in the Logos newsgroups, someone asked this question:
I am trying to do a search of the Greek where you have a controlling preposition followed by two nouns joined by a conjunction. I am sure it can be done, but I am not experienced enough with searches to do it.
A couple of examples might help you understand what I am trying to accomplish. In John 3:5 you have EX (εξ) being the controlling preposition followed by UDATOS KAI PNEUMATOS (υδατος και πνευματος) the two nouns UDATOS (υδατος) and PNEUMATOS (πνευματος) joined by a conjunction KAI (και).
This example is one of those things that is just easier to explain in the context of a video than in writing. So I shot a video—watch out, it clocks in at over 15 minutes—to show how I worked through the problem.
