How to Study God's Word

using the Strong's Concordance

"Whom shall God teach to knowledge, and whom shall He make to understand doctrine?  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept;  line upon line, line upon line;  here a little and there a little:"  Isaiah 28:9a & 10.

Pre-Requisite: Dictionary use, Books of Bible

In Lesson One we learned the first thing we do to to study God's Word is to

Read God's Word

In Lesson Two we learned from Isaiah 28:9-10, that we must

Put Precept upon precept,
Line upon line,
Here a little and there a little.

We also learned we must have a tool to help us find like words in Scriptures, and that tool is the                Strong's Concordance

In Lesson Three, you learned how to use the Dictionary in the  Strong's Concordance to find the Scriptures asked for, using the word   L I G H T

In Lesson Four, you practiced using the Dictionary in the Strong's Concordance to find Old Testament Scriptures using one number, __216__, to write out Scriptures using only that one Hebrew number.

Explantion of Lesson Five:   Practice in building the skill of using Greek numbers and finding Scriptures with that number using the Dictionary in the front of the Strong's Concordance.

Instructions:  In this lesson you will again look up the word  L I G H T in the Dictionary in the front of the Strong's Concordance.  But this time you will only use like numbers and the Scriptures that match that same number for New Testament Scriptures.  

For example, using the following Scripture:  "Then spake Jesus again unto them saying, I am the light of the world. . ."  When you look up this number in the Dictionary next to the New Testament Scripture, John 8:12, you find the Greek number is ___5457___, and you also see the number is slanted or in italics.  All numbers for the Greek dictionary have this identifying feature.  In contrast, you found in the last lesson that all Hebrew numbers found in the Old Testament, 216, were straight up and down.  Look at both to see the distinct difference.

Instructions:  Write out five ( 5 ) complete Scriptures that use the same New Testament Greek number,  __5457__ for the word light:






Remember, studying God's word precept upon precept, line upon line, here a little and there a little as Isaiah 28:9-10 shows us to do, we can find God's hidden truth for our walk for our day.  What is the hidden truth you found for your own walk in the above Scriptures?
