Numbering Systems

Many word study books make use of numbering systems to make it easier to find the exact word you are looking for. Though a book might have its own numbering system, most use either the Strong's numbering system or the G/K numbering system. All of the G/K books have indexes at the back to cross-reference between the two numbering systems.

   1. Determine a word to study.
   2. Identify the original Greek/Hebrew word and note:
  • the Greek/Hebrew word and its transliteration
  • English translations of the word
   3. Create a list of every occurrence of the word in the Bible.
  • Examine the range of usage from the list
   4. Study the background and other usages of the word in Biblical and extra Biblical literature.
