"There Is One God And One Mediator Between God And Men, The Man Christ Jesus" 
1 Timothy (2:5)

Glossary (Expanded)


  • Additional Notes 3

    The words Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are words found in scripture, but not in this order or grouping of words (titles).  

    This non-biblical grouping of words must not be confused, or equated, with 1John 5:7.


    The “Word” (G3056) does NOT equate or translate into “Jesus” (G2424).


    These two words clearly do not have the same literal meaning. It says the Word was God, not the word was Jesus, but it was God’s word/thought/will/plan that was given to us or “spoken” through Jesus, His Son. John 5:37, 12:49, 14:10 


    (Ref also: three that bear record  &  How Can Three Be One?  &  1 John 5:7 )

  • Adhon

    In the Septuagint version of the Old Testament, the Greek word used for the Hebrew word Jehovah, as well as the frequent name God, is given as  Adhon, meaning "Lord."   Adonai (Heb.  Adhon  or Adhonay) means “lord” or “master” and is usually translated “Lord” in English Bibles.   Adonai should be understood to mean “Lord of all” (Deut. 10:17), it is not God’s name.   The word “Adonai” is used in Judaism as a spoken substitute for the ineffable (incapable of being expressed; indescribable or unutterable) name of God.  
  • Ellipsis

      Ellipsis – An Omission from a sentence of one or more words, which are obviously understood, but must be supplied to make the expression grammatically complete, eg. “This is My body,” and “This is My blood” (Matt.26:26Mark 14:24).   These elliptic statements, if made grammatically correct would read, “This is (what represents) My body” and “This is (what represents) My blood.”

  • Hyperbole

      Hyperbole – An exaggeration of the size, power, meaning, and so on, of an object or phenomenon in order to emphasize that. A hyperbole is a type of figure of speech.   An example of hyperbole is saying;  
    1. I am so hungry I could eat a horse.
    2. He's as strong as an ox.
    3. I could sleep for a year.
    4. This book weighs a ton.
      A hyperbole is a figure of speech form used in the Bible.  

    Matthew 5:29 If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away…


    Mark 9:23 NIV “Everything is possible for him who believes.”


    John 12:19 “Behold, the world is gone after him.”  (The whole world at that time did NOT follow after him but very large crowds in Israel did.)

  • Jesus (Yahshua)

      Note:   The Messiah's Hebrew name is usually transliterated as either Yeshua” or “Yahshua” (although for different reasons). Although the pronunciation has changed over time, both are in reference to the same person (Jesus).   (See: The Pronunciation History Of Yahshua to Jesus)
  • Metaphor

      A metaphor is the representation use of a word in a figurative meaning on the basis of the similarity of two objects or phenomena in some way.   The Bible should be understood literally whenever possible. But when a statement appears to be contrary to our experience, or to known facts, or to the general teaching of truth, then we can expect that a figure of speech is present.   Example 1:  

    1) John 6:51 – “I am the living bread” 2) Matthew 5:13 – “You are the salt of the earth” 3) John 1:29 – “Behold! The Lamb of God” 4) Heb 1:5 - "this day have I begotten thee" 5) 1Jn 3:2  - "Beloved, now are we the sons of God,"

        Example 2:  

    (Hebrews 6:5)  And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come – (figure of speech / not literal – We do not taste words ).

      Why is this important to understand? To prevent serious misinterpretations of Scripture which come from:

    ♦ Calling something figurative that is literal.

    ♦ Calling something literal that is figurative.

  • Personified

      1. transitive: To be an example of; to have all the attributes of.   2. transitive: To create a representation of an abstract quality in the form of a literary character.   Definitions by Grammarly     verb (used with object), per·son·i·fied, per·son·i·fy·ing.   1. to represent (a thing or abstraction) in the form of a person, as in art.   2. to embody (a quality, idea, etc.) in a real person or a concrete thing.   Definitions by Dictionary.com
  • Pharisee

      Pharisees (and the Sadducees) were Jewish religious parties in Jesus' day.   The Sadducees denounced John the Baptist (Matt 3:7-8). They both opposed Jesus and His teachings (Matt 16:6,11,12, 21:12-13; Mark 11:15-18; Luke 19:47) and the apostolic Church (Acts 5:17, 33).   One of the main differences between the Pharisees and the Sadducees was that the Pharisees believed in the resurrection (Acts 23:6) but the Sadducees did not (Matt 22:23). They accepted only the written Law of Moses as authoritative and rejected the subsequent revelation.   As a result, the Sadducees denied many of the doctrines held by the Pharisees and by Jesus, including the existence of angels and spirits (Acts 23:7-8).  
  • Sanhedrin

    Hebrew Word:סַנְהֶדְרִין   Greek Word: Συνέδριον,   ("sitting together," hence "assembly" or "council")   The Sanhedrin was an assembly of twenty-three to seventy-one men appointed in every city in the Land of Israel.   Moses and the Israelites were commanded by God to establish courts of judges who were given full authority over the people of Israel, who were commanded by God to obey every word the judges instructed and every law they established (Deut 16:18).   Judges, in ancient Israel, were the religious leaders and Teachers of the nation of Israel.

    Translation / Transliteration

    The goal of Bible translation is to be transparent to the original text, to see as clearly as possible what the biblical authors actually wrote.

        [caption id="attachment_10116" align="aligncenter" width="671"]Translation By Meaning & Transliteration By Sound Understanding The Difference Between Translation and Transliteration[/caption]      


    A translation is when a translator takes the text of one language (i.e., Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic), which is unreadable to the majority of Christians and converts it to the equivalent text in English (or the common language for another culture). However, the problem with translation is that there is not always an equivalent text from one language to another. We don’t just have different words; we have different sentence structures, different figures of speech, and some words which have no match in a different language or which carry different connotations and nuances. Sometimes translators will use a similar term and then expand the text to include a definition within it. But in many cases, when translators come across a word with no exact English equivalent, they will just skip translating that word entirely.      


    Transliteration is when a translator takes a word in one language (i.e., Greek word apostlos), adjusts it a little to make it look and sound more like another language (English word Apostle ), and then places it within the rest of the text in that other language. So in biblical translation, a translator would take, for example, a Greek word and adjust it to fit in in our character set, usually changing the pronunciation a bit to make it sound more like English.  

    It is good to know when you are looking at a transliteration, but it is vitally important to know the literal meaning of that transliteration. Sometimes this can make a world of difference in understanding an otherwise confusing passage.


    Translation & Transliteration Examples

    The best way to see how all this works is with several examples. Angel (G32) is a transliterated word. It comes from the Greek word aggelos, which literally means “messenger” or “envoy.” When we hear the word angel, we usually think of a heavenly being with wings, but such a meaning is not actually present in aggelos. However, in many examples, these messengers were indeed beings sent from heaven. In some cases, the biblical authors were referring to these beings when they used aggelos, while in other cases they just meant normal human messengers.   We could draw a similar parallel with the Hebrew use of the word alien (H5237). An alien is someone who was a foreigner. The Bible uses this word to refer to human foreigners (Ps 69:8). However, the word has gained an extra connotation so that it is often used to mean a foreign being from outer space.   The New Testament authors went back and forth between using aggelos for heavenly beings or for human messengers. Many English translations try to reflect this by going back and forth between the transliteration and the translation respectively, yet this can be problematic as well, as sometimes the true meaning is ambiguous. Take, for example, “the angels of the seven churches” (Revelation 1:20, NASB). Were these heavenly beings assigned to those churches? Or were they the human messengers for the churches?
