Welcome to the 'Trench's Synonyms of the New Testament' on StudyLight.org!

Containing 108 entries cross-referenced and cross-linked to other resources on StudyLight.org, this resource can be classified as a required reference book for any good study library.

This work was first accomplished in 1854 by Trench, an Anglican archbishop at Dublin. It has been in print nearly all the time since, because the good archbishop had a genius for understanding Biblical Greek, and the proper synonyms of the same. Though old, it is not lacking in style. And he was able to express himself in a way that is easily understood. In this case the old may be better than what is coming out in our day.

There are one hundred and seventeen sets of synonyms given and compared.

A thorough discussion is given of the meaning and use of each Greek word. Then a comparison between them shows why they are used in various parts of the Holy Scriptures.

The Greek of the Septuagint is used to bring the Old Testament words into the comparisons, thus throwing much light on the Hebrew words in many places.

All scripture references and reference to other entries within the text have been linked. To use this resource to it's full potential, follow all the links presented within the text of the entry you are reading.
