Concordances are so useful.
on 26 November 2014
As useful today as it has ever been. This appears to be the 1995 KJV (anglicised) version, so make sure that this concordance is the one which refers to your Bible of choice. Hendricksons, Hard Back ISBN 0-917006-01-1. H28.5cm x W21.5cm x D5.7cm pp1340+app.
This concordance contains a cross referencing index of a Greek and Hebrew dictionary of the New Testament for the scholars, which is of a tremendous value in extending our understanding of the complex meanings allied to many Greek words which can express many things at the same time. The main concordance is a comprehensive listing of the words of the bible in order of the Canonical Books therein (no apocryphal books). There is also an index of some common words like His, Their and And. I won't give a Greek example, for I fear you have already fallen asleep. But "spirit" is a great one to start with.
Here is another example. I was recently thinking about Jesus exalting us to constantly remember the content of our hearts, and to look closely towards him for guidance. There is a passage I remembered about the hypocrites and their hearts of deceit. So I looked up "Heart", and on page 472 under Matthew 7:6 we have "...lips, but their heart is far from me." Hey presto. That's it.
If you think you might want to use one, then get one, these second hand copies are super value!
