A little search surprise

Postby JimHobbs » Mon Oct 28, 2013 5:10 pm

I wondered what would happen if one were to search for "parable of the talents" using that term instead of one more likely to produce the desired scriptural passage. If one type this into the search box at scriptures.lds.org, one gets a single result, which if clicked on sends one to the lds.org home page (!).

Search result is "Gospels — Bible Dictionary" / "Parable: Talents" yielding the url https://www.lds.org/?lang=eng&letter=g

Note that a search for a direct quote from the parable of the talents delivers excellent and unambiguous results.
