Product Description

From the Back Cover

Whether you're a pastor, a student, or simply a lover of the Bible, this book helps you get more out of God's Word by revealing the original meanings of key biblical words. The reader-friendly, narrative style makes it easy to explore the Hebrew and Greek words that lie behind the English words. You'll discover the significant shades of meaning and nuances that bring depth to your understanding of Scripture. This highly accessible reference tool surpasses the well-known Vine's Expository of New Testament Words in a number of ways: Thorough coverage of both Old and New Testaments gives you a firm grasp on the entire Bible. The Goodrick/Kohlenberger numbering system allows for accurate identification of Hebrew and Greek words. Top evangelical scholarship ensures current insights into the meaning of words. Biblical concepts are fully discussed, providing you not only with understanding but also, where appropriate, with practical and devotional insights you can apply to your life. Entry words are taken from the NIV and the NASB-respectively the best-selling contemporary translation and today's most literal word-for-word translation. Major KVJ terms are cross-referenced to broaden your grasp of transnational nuances and distinctions. You'll also find a wealth of information contained in four indexes: Index of Hebrew words, Index of Scripture references, Index of Greek words, Topical subject index.

HASH(0x9a9a15f4) out of 5 stars Need a Bible teacher? 7 May 2008
By Kenneth Hutson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book really is like bringing a Bible teacher into your home. I prefer it over Vines, and I give copies to those whom I think it will help. It was also published previously under the title: Zondervan Expository Dictionary of Bible Words by Larry Richards

HASH(0x9a9a1648) out of 5 stars Detailed to perfection 12 Jun. 2000
By Rachelle Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have always taken my studies in the Bible very seriously. The scriptures teach us in Acts 17:10-12, to examine the scriptures daily. I needed to do an extensive study on the levels of authority in the church. I found the NIV Encyclopedia of Bible Words in addition to the NIV Bible Dictionary by Zondervan to be very helpful. It truely gives a background history to the different degrees of Authority in the Bible and to what extent it should be impressed upon one another. For example, husbands over wives, the authority that Paul used for building others up and not for tearing someone down and the authority that God gave Jesus...just to name a few. I recommend it for anyone truely wanting to be like the "Bereans". This book will help you with the root meaning(s) of words or with specific books of the Bible.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's a good book, however, the first two definitions I looked up weren't there: heresy and nephilim among others I cannot recall at this time... Worth the money though..
