Defining Biblical Terms
All too often when we read our Bibles, we come across a word that we feel we know the definition of. When we check our dictionary to see what the definition of the word is or to confirm what we "think" it means, we feel like we are getting a little bit better understanding of what is being communicated to us from the Bible. But, is this correct? Is the definition in the dictionary the one we should use? Is there a possibility that the word we are looking up may have a different meaning than what we found in our dictionary? All too often we do not think about these things. We simply take for granted that our dictionaries are giving us the correct definition of those words we are looking up in our Bibles.
I learned several years ago that the Bible actually defines its own words if we take the time to look at all the instances that word is being used and how it is used. I have learned that Almighty YHWH has defined His Words within His Absolute Written Word.
Below are some word definitions we come across in our Bibles. Some of these are PDF files that you can either open up or download to your computer. Others are links to another website that gives some definitions of different words. You are free to download anything from this website.
