The Interlinear English to Greek New Testament Bible is perfect for anyone wishing to look up Greek words (relating to any specific verse of scripture). The first line provides the English translation, beneath that is the original Greek, and beneath the original Greek is a phonetic pronunciation of each word. There is also a Strong's "number" for each word.
It is recommended that this Interlinear Bible is used in conjunction with Strong's Exhaustive Concordance. Once a word is chosen, jot down its number and go to Strong's. Then use the number to find the correct Greek word and its meaning.
STRONG'S EXHAUSTIVE CONCORDANCE
Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible is a concordance of the King James Bible (KJV) that was constructed under the direction of Dr. James Strong (1822–1894) and first published in 1890. It is an exhaustive cross-reference of every word in the KJV back to the word in the original text. Unlike other Biblical reference books, the purpose of Strong's Concordance is not to provide content or commentary about the Bible, but to provide an index to the Bible. This allows the reader to find words where they appear in the Bible. This index allows a student of the Bible to re-find a phrase or passage previously studied.
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words was written by William Edwy Vine and published as a four volume set in 1940. It is a cross-reference from key English words in the Authorized King James Version to the original words in the Greek texts of the New Testament. It provides a concise meaning of the original Greek word, often providing Bible verse references as examples. If there are several Greek words that may translate to the same English word, Vine's distinguishes the shadings of meaning and connotation that may be lost in the English. Vine's also provides the definition of a word (as used in the King James Version) more accurately than an English dictionary, because it expands the Greek use of the word. So we have a fuller meaning of the word by seeing how the word is used in the NT. Vine's can be used with Strong's Concordance. Every word is numbered with the equivalent Strong's number so you can use it more efficiently.
Easton's Bible Dictionary generally refers to the Illustrated Bible Dictionary, by Matthew George Easton (1823-1894), published in 1897 (three years after Easton's death) by Thomas Nelson. Because of its age, it is now a public domain resource. It contains nearly 4,000 entries relating to the Bible, from a 19th century Christian viewpoint. Despite its name, many of the entries in Easton's are encyclopedic in nature, though there are also short, dictionary-like entries.
For ease of refference, here are two complete versions of the Bible.
