An encyclopedia based on the NIV and the NASB, this volume explores the Hebrew and Greek words that lie behind the English words.

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.
