A word-list for Bible study
As you study the Bible, and read other books written to help you understand it, you will come across many words that have a specialised meaning when they are used to talk about God. These are called ‘theological terms’. Theology, in the Ancient Greek language in which the New Testament was originally written, means the study or understanding of God. Other words come from Latin, the language of the Roman Empire. A few come from Hebrew, the original language of the Old Testament.
This word-list has been written to help you understand this specialist language.
