Learn to define biblical words in their context. Because the Bible was written in ancient languages from foreign cultures, our English translations can’t always capture the nuances of the original text. Dictionaries may improve our general understanding of words, but they rarely show the context of how the words were used. This collection of Hebrew and Greek word studies, previously published in Bible Study Magazine, shows you the steps taken by expert scholars to analyze important words.
