A multi-functional reference tool that helps the average person understand the Bible in its original languages
AMG's Comprehensive Dictionary of New Testament Words is your gateway to discover the meaning of the words in the Greek New Testament, even if you don't know the first thing about the Greek language.
Part one contains definitions or cross-references for more than 8,000 English terms, definitions that are based on the meaning of the more than 5,000 Greek words in the Greek New Testament. Unlike some other tools, in which you have to know the Greek alphabet or must first look up a Strong's number before you get to the real meaning of things, this dictionary is organized alphabetically by the words in your English New Testament. It covers all the common English words and all the names of people and places found in the New Testament, and often lists the Scripture references where that word is used. The primary entries also list the Greek words and Strong's numbers so that you have them as a reference to other works. Knowledge of Greek is not needed to make full use of this dictionary.
Part two is a simple lexicon of the Greek New Testament words, organized by Strong's numbers, defined by terms found in part one, so that when you want to dig deeper you can look up the other English word entries in part one where that Greek word is mentioned.
This dictionary is not based on the English words of any one translation, but on the total vocabulary of seven different English translations: J. N. Darby's version, the King James version, the New King James Version, the New American Standard Bible, the New International Version (1984 edition), the New International Version (2011 edition), and the English Standard Version. The Scripture "quotations" are the author's paraphrased text so that no one English version is favored over another.
Multifunctional but easy to use, comprehensive yet focused on one English word at a time, AMG's Comprehensive Dictionary of New Testament Words is the perfect tool for studying the English New Testament in the version of your choice.
