Note: In two separate emails Stephen Lord shared the following information about lexical pitfalls when studying the original languages of the Bible. He has generously allow us to reproduce them here.
Just a couple examples I recently stumbled across showing, in a small way, why using dated lexical resources can result in some error.
I’ve mentioned before that Thayer’s is popular because it is cheap; the copyright is expired and it has been coded to Strong’s numbering system, making for a tempting shortcut in language studies.
For the best articles, posts, and information in the brotherhood, The Christian Hub pulls together sources from all over and brings them to you in one place. You can even make it your home page, just check the explanations on the site if you need them.
A special feature is Ron Thomas’s Pointers, recommendations of articles that he’s read and which the site has linked to.
Many names you’ll recognize, like Neal Pollard and Cindy Colley, plus many of our own: Weylan, Jeff, Mike R., Richard M., Daniel, plus the BNc, Forthright, and TFR sites.
There are also sections on missions, church websites, The Equip Network, Daniel’s Daily Devotional, and Quick Bible Truths.
It’s all there, on a single page. No wonder it’s called the site to find them all! The Christian Hub!
