BIBLE DICTIONARY

Have you just read something and wasn't quite sure what a word meant?  Don't be bashful and mistakenly pass over it or pretend you know.  Check it's meaning here!  Or you can browse the database of biblical terminology.

A

Abandon


The feeling that you're left all alone or a thing can be abandoned too, like a church or your spirituality. Proverbs 19:7; Lamentations 2:7; 2 Timothy 4:9-16




Abase


A type of humbleness that usually presents itself when you don’t have much to offer. Paul talked to the Philippian church on being content--that whether you have a lot or not (abased), you are able to still keep your focus on God Philippians 4:12




Abba


The Aramaic word for “father” Mark 14:36; Romans 8:15; Galatians 4:6




Abhor


Extreme disgust and hatred. As Christians, we tend to flee from such strong language, but the Bible often used this word to describe God’s feelings towards evil/sin and its affects. We are therefore called to also abhor evil. Psalm 5:6; Romans 12:9




Abide


Live and/or accept. Often in Scripture, both meanings are used. For example, when you abide in God and He in you, it means both to live within each other and to accept all that goes with that. Abiding in God, you must live in harmony. Psalm 61:4; John 6:56; John 8:31




Afflictions


The cause of continued pain in the body or mind. In Scripture, it often is specific to the trials that Christians must go through for Christ’s sake. We are to bear this pain and continue on knowing that Christ will relieve our pain. Psalm 34:19; 2 Timothy 3:10-12; 2 Timothy 2:5




Atonement


Paying for your sins and therefore reconciling you and God. In the Old Testament, it was through literal and physical sacrifices (blood of lambs). But ever since Christ died, He is that sacrificed lamb that “atoned” or paid for our sins...once and for all. Exodus 29:36





B

Believe


Accepting something as truth. True belief in Jesus, as the Son of God whose sacrificial death takes away the sins of man, causes one to accept the Gospel and renounce sin. In response to this act of belief, God regenerates the heart and transforms the life of the believer. (Spirit First) Mark 9:23; John 1:12; John 3:16; John 14:12; Acts 4:32; Romans 10:9,10; I John 3:22,23





C

Centurion


Roman soldier that commanded about 100 soldiers. Matthew 8:5-13; Mark 15:39




Cubit


Measurement of distance, used in the Old Testament, of about 18 inches. Genesis 6:15





D

Doctrine


Principles established by God and taught by the church; non-negotiable truths of the gospel revealing God’s will and plan of salvation for man. (Spirit First) John 7:17; Romans 6:17; 1 Timothy 4:16





E

Epistle


A written letter, but in spiritual context, a living epistle would mean that you are a walking, breathing letter of God’s Word and truths in order to point others to Christ. I Thessalonians 5:11; II Corinthians 3:2,3





F

Faith


Trusting and believing something to be true. Hebrews 11:1





G

Godliness


Careful observation and application to God’s law, will, Word, and character. I Timothy 4:8, 6:6, 6:11





H

Hallelujah


Literally means “Praises Yah” (short for Yahweh); Praise the Lord!




Hosanna


Comes form the Hebrew word for "save" and we use it as praise. Matthew 21:9





I

Idol






J

Jealousy






K

Kindhearted






L

Labor






M

Meditate


To contemplate seriously and prayerfully Joshua 1:8; Psalm 4:4




Mercy


Compassion for the helpless, needy, the offender, and the wrong. Although God’s Word calls for us to show mercy, most often in Scripture “mercy” refers to God’s action of mercy. Instead of seeing that we get quick, harsh punishment (ie death), He had compassion on us (nothing we did right) and sent His Son to die instead. Psalm 118:4; Zechariah 7:9; Romans 9:15,16; Ephesians 2:4-7; Titus 3:4-7




Merciful


Full of mercy, or compassion. Truly, only God is full of mercy, but we should also strive to be merciful towards others. Nehemiah 9:17; Psalm 116:5; Luke 6:36




Messiah


Another name for Christ, highlighting His deity. John 1:41; 4:25





N

Naive






O

Oath






P

Pagan






Q

Quiet Time


Taking time out for God away from distractions in order to become closer to Him. Involves meditation. Job 37:14; Psalm 4:4; Psalm 143:5





R


S

Shackles


Chains on feet that prisoners would have to wear; spiritual bondage Mark 5:4; Galatians 5:1




Sin


Disobeying God’s law by neglect, ignorance, or defiance





T

Testimony


Provide evidence or proof of the existence or appearance of something as one recounts their religious conversion or experience. May be done in written format or orally, but must be the solemn truth as it gives witness to God. (Spirit First) John 3:32,33; 1 Timothy 3:7; 2 Timothy 1:8
