Sort theophanies by time
Quickly locate when a theophanic event occurred—in the past (something being remembered), present (occurring at that moment), or future (a prophesied event yet to come). In Psalm 77:18, for example, the psalmist remembers when “the crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind; your lightnings lighted up the world; the earth trembled and shook.”
Sort by who saw the theophanic event
For a theophanic event to be in the Bible, someone had to witness it. You can quickly sort theophanies by audience to find out every time a specific person saw a manifestation of God, like when “the Lord appeared to Abraham” in Genesis 12:7
Learn which person of the Trinity appeared
Researching every time the Holy Spirit appeared? Search by agent to learn more—or when God the Father or God the Son made the theophanic appearance. For example, in Luke 9:29, the manifesting agent is Jesus: “And as he [Jesus] was praying, the appearance of his face was altered, and his clothing became dazzling white.”
Find when God appears physically in the Bible
God reveals himself physically in the person of Jesus Christ, but sort by manifestation, and you’ll find other instances God reveals (or will reveal) himself in the physical realm—like when Isaiah tells us God will “come down to fight on Mount Zion” (31:4).
