What are the fundamentals of what somebody ought to be in a phrase research and the way can the reverse interlinear Bible assist them get began?

Dr. Invoice Mounce: Discovering the best phrase is absolutely essential. Typically, you’ll have a look at a phrase and also you’ll research it, and whenever you’re performed you go, “Duh, that didn’t help me at all.” So it’s actually key that you just discover the best phrase. Different clues within the textual content. Search for phrases which might be repeated. I’ll search for phrases that could be theological and orientation phrases that you just don’t perceive. Evaluate Bible translations. Pull up a few completely different Bibles and and see the place they’re completely different.

I consider a bicycle wheel: it’s obtained that axle, it’s obtained the hub. You possibly can pull out a number of spokes right here and there on the bike and it’s nonetheless going to work. However should you pull out the hub, all of it falls aside. Bible verses have hubs. There’s going to be particular phrases which might be so central to the verse that should you didn’t perceive them, the entire verse falls aside. These are the phrases you’re in search of.

We’ve been speaking a bit in regards to the reverse interlinear. Bible Gateway has performed a extremely good job of implementing this. Let me simply say a number of issues about it, as a result of I need to be certain that individuals know tips on how to use it. What you do is that you just go to Bible Gateway and also you lookup a verse—let’s say John 3:16—and beneath each English phrase there’s a transliteration of what that Greek phrase is. It’s form of cool that you are able to do a mouse-over on a phrase, and see if that phrase happens wherever else. Like should you seemed up John 3:16 and 17, mouse-over on the phrase God, you’ll see that’s the Greek phrase theos. And some other place that theos is used can also be highlighted.

The place it will get actually highly effective, although, is should you use Bible Gateway Plus and click on on that phrase, the sidebar opens and you may scroll all the way down to “Dictionaries” and my dictionary [Mounce’s Full Expository Dictionary and Mounce Concise Greek-English Dictionary of the New Testomony] is listed there. Should you click on on that, each phrase in John 3:16 that I discuss will get listed. So it’s actually easy. So that you see all of the phrases of John 3:16 if you wish to do the phrase on love, you click on on love. And up comes my dictionary. So it’s been a extremely, actually good implementation of it. You can even click on on a phrase and it reveals meanings. So there’s numerous other ways to do that. And I inform college students that there’s completely no cause to do English phrase research ever. I imply, it isn’t that onerous any longer to actually have the ability to do a Greek or Hebrew phrase research. You simply have to know a little bit bit in regards to the nature of the language. And after that, it’s a chunk of cake.
