A concordance is like an index; you look up a word, and it will tell you where that word can be found. For example, if you were to look up Jesus in a biblical concordance, the concordance will give you the passages (e.g. Mt 1:1) where the word can be found.
"The Strongest Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible" is a really great concordance! In the concordance, you will find many neat things; some of them include
- "A Brief History of the Strongest Strong's Exhaustive Concordance Project" in the preface
- An introduction that talks about James Strong and concordances in general; improvements made in this concordance from the previous concordance; and the features of this concordance; and a separate, but with more details than the one included in the features of the concordance included in the introduction, page on the "Features of the Main Concordance".
The book is thick and there are many passages included in the concordance. What I really like about this concordance is that the passages that contain the words of Jesus Christ are highlighted in gray. Also, the concordance has "Nave's Topical Bible Reference System" (without the biblical text).Read more ›
The concordance is the most basic tool of Bible study, aside from the Bible itself. It has two primary uses: finding verses and doing word studies.
The first use is pretty simple: you know a word or two of a verse but you can't remember where to find it. So you look up the word in the concordance, which lists the most common verses in the Bible which contain that word, and choose the right one. (A concordance which calls itself "exhaustive" lists every single verse in the Bible containing a particular word.)
The second use is more complicated. Let's say you want to know about how the Bible uses the word "song." First, take the concordance and look up the English. Under the headword "song" are three columns: the first with the book and verse number, the second with a brief excerpt from the verse, the third with a four-digit number. It looks something like this:
Ex 15:1 the children of Israel this s unto 7892
Ex 15:2 The Lord is my strength and s, and he is 2176
Rev 5:9 And they sung a new s, saying, Thou art 5603
And the list goes on. The number stands for the Hebrew or Greek word which was translated by the English word "song." In the back of your concordance are very short Hebrew and Greek dictionaries; if the verse is in the Old Testament, look it up in the Hebrew dictionary; if the verse is in the New Testament, look it up in the Greek one. Using the list above, we find that 7892 is the Hebrew word "shir"; 2176 is the Hebrew word "zimrat"; and 5603 is the Greek word "ode.Read more ›
