Although first published some 70+ years ago Vines remains a fine reference work for understanding terms and words used in the bible.

A point worth bearing in mind is that although it does contain Hebrew scripture references they are not as many nor in as such depth as the Greek.

The Greek reference section is superbly laid out. The word is given both verb & noun with the related scriptures next to them + the Greek word applied. If you struggle to find a certain word then you might look to see what the KJV uses as this often will be the word used alongside the RSV. An interlinear using direct Greek with accompanying English is also helpful in tracking down the right word.

The explanations are clear & concise and in no few examples require some thought to see just how the original Greek understanding applies but certainly gets the student thinking and sheds greater light.

Once you get the hang of it Vine's is all but irreplaceable and a very reasonably priced addition to any bible students library.

Very useful tool for Bible study. Very handy to have the Greek words included too. Very bulky but then it's larger print which is better.

A very useful book that helps one to understand many of the Hebrew and Greek words in the Bible. However, not every word is covered which is a bit annoying and surprising as some of the words are quite important.

It is not a poor imitaion of Strong's distionary and often has far more information that he has.

Vines Complete Expository Dictionary of the Old and New Testament is an excellent addition to your reference books. Crammed with clearly laid out information that will seriously help the mature Bible student to search deeper into the meanings of the words in the Scriptures.

An ideal book for anyone who wants to seriously read and understand the Bible without having to be told "it's a divine mystery".
