Find out what is actually written* in the Greek NT Bible

Using the helps found on internet websites

How find the correct English meaning(s) for most Greek words in the various English NT Bible passages:

1). Go to  Next 2).


2). Find the ‘search bar’ and type in the passage you want to check out, click search. (I use the CLV (Concordant Literal Version) for my starting point, because it has proven to be a more accurate translation than many others. They are all so different. Why? Aren’t they all accurate translations? No, ok, so which one is the most accurate? – Next to 3).


3). Read the passage you wanted to be translated by the CLV, click search. Then let’s check their translation of the passage you entered. – Next to 4).


4). In the ‘search bar’ use the down arrow, and find the ‘Interlinear Greek New Testament’ and click search. – Next to 5).


5). When the passage shows, it will have numbers on the top of the words in the passage. This number was assigned years ago by Strong’s Dictionary for each of the Hebrew and Greek words in the Bible. - Next to 6).


Note:  Strong’s Dictionary numbers have over years become the standard designation for all Hebrew and Greek Bible words. However, Strong’s Dictionary uses a variety of ‘translated’ words to convey the actual Greek and Hebrew definitions. Some of their definitions are picked because of their usage; others are conjecturing (guessing). Definitions are also used to support pre-conceived Doctrines. Words that should be translated as neutral (without gender) are often given gender. A neutral Greek word like ’it’ may be changed to ‘he’ which of course changes the passage. Often a word like ‘spirit’ (wind, breath, and blow in Greek) is provided with a ‘he’ making ‘spirit’ into a person. The searcher needs to know these false changes.


6). Record the number located above the Greek word you want to search. Click that number to highlight it and wait a moment for the definition(s) to show. When it does you will see the Greek word and the ways it has been translated into English. Some are correct, but others maybe opinions to fit a pre-conceived doctrine.


7). The definitions given the Greek word will show you the many ways the very same word has been used in various English translations. The problem - not all these definitions are accurate, some are opinions to fit the translator (especially when using Strong’s many Greek – English definitions). – Take THE NEXT STEP.


8). THE NEXT STEP, Go to you will find this link at the very bottom of the webpage, click it – Next 9).


9). Using Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words scroll down to find the English word you want, click the word and read Vines definition(s) for that word. Observe the recorded Greek word it translates. For a confirmation of the translation go to the ( search bar) and find the ‘Greek interlinear Bible’ link, click search, use the Greek number above the word (even if you don’t know Greek) read the definition. Then use the definition that you think fits the passage for the word in the sentence you are studying. See [1] Note: repeat this process for all the possible definitions of the words in the paragraph.  The true meaning of the passage is developing for YOU to discover by these steps!

*Greek is an accurate language; unlike Hebrew it is difficult for biased opinions to use false words when you check them using these steps.  However, another reliable way is to consult an Analytical Greek Lexicon.
