Simple word studies, exploring some New Testament words whose meanings are often hidden or obscure.

They are all listed on the A to Z pages

Out Of Action  ‘katargeo’, a very useful word which has been translated in several different ways: – abolish, destroy, nullify, release.

Bedrock ‘petra’, ‘petros’ and the difference between bedrock and a boulder!  ‘On this rock’, said Jesus, ‘I will build my Church’.

Children  Several different words describing believers as ‘children’ in the New Testament : ‘pais’, ‘paidion’, ‘nepios’, ‘teknon’, ‘teknion’.  What do they all mean?  What can we learn from them?

Manipulation ‘eritheia’  A word that turns up only seven times in the New Testament, but with sinister undertones and strong warnings.  See also The Seeking of Control (short leaflet) and Witchcraft – Public Enemy Number One (a long talk, more than 1 Hour) both from Derek Prince. (Direct links + downloads if wanted)

Truth   ‘aletheia’   Not just the absence of lies, not just some religious theory . . .

Folded  ‘entulisso’  Thoughts on resurrection – but why ‘folded’?  Read and find out!

Building The House  This is a single chapter taken from Designed to Grow.  What does ‘edify’ really mean?  Jesus and Paul both used this word ‘oikodomeo’ – and several related words – all related to church growth.
