New And Concise Bible Dictionary

Here the reader will find very helpful articles about many terms used in the word of God. Scriptural definitions that give insight to the meanings of many names and phrases found in Gods word.





Man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of Jehovah doth man live. (Deut. 8:3; Matt. 4:4)


Prefatory Note

The principal object in bringing out this Bible Dictionary is to give in a concise form information on subjects not usually found in such works, namely:-

  • I. A short survey of each of the Books of the Bible, with a glance at the truth of God contained in them.
  • II. The doctrines of Christianity as set forth in scripture.
  • III. The dispensational dealings of God as revealed in His word: the distinction between the various dispensations being often misunderstood and ignored.
  • IV. Prophecy: many parts of scripture being unintelligible unless the ways of God as portrayed in Prophecy are understood.
  • V. The feasts and offerings given in the Old Testament, with their antitypes found in the New Testament.
  • VI. The names of persons and places have been included to make the work complete, together with the identification of sites as far as they been discovered by modern travellers. The Longitude and Latitude of such have been inserted from the excellent map of the Palestine Exploration Fund.
  • VII. Chronological tables are also added added.
  • VII. A few New Testament Synonyms form an Appendix, giving examples of how God has been pleased to cause the writers of the various books to use many Greek words.

Under the proper names is given in most cases a reference to every occurrence of the name, forming thus far a Concordance.
