The Complete Word Study Old and New Testaments are the ultimate tools for the study of the original languages of the Old and New Testaments. Each word in the Hebrew Old Testament and the Greek New Testament is represented by a Strong's number and a grammatical code printed above the English text. The number corresponds to the original Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek word listed in Strong's Dictionary.
The Lexical Aids section, provides more detailed definitions of key words. The grammatical codes identify the forms and parts of speech of the Hebrew and Aramaic words and are explained in the Grammatical Notations section of the "Study Helps."
Also included in the "Study Helps" is a Translational Reference Index. The index makes it possible to identify, by Strong's Dictionary number, all the Hebrew words that a particular English word represents in the King James Version of the Old Testament.
No single book can replace the insights that one might gain by a formal study of the Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek languages. But many do not have the time to spend the next several years studying these languages. The Complete Word Study Old and New Testaments are the next best things! Their easy-to-use format allows any reader to gain a deeper understanding of the Bible.
About The Editors

He co-authored the Complete Word Study Dictionary: Old Testament, was general editor of the Complete Word Study Strong's Concordance and the Complete Word Study Old Testament, and served as managing editor of the Complete Word Study New Testament, The Complete Word Study Dictionary: New Testament, and the Hebrew-Greek Key Word Study Bible.
Spiros Zodhiates was born to Greek parents on the island of Cyprus in 1922. After completing his Greek education, he attended the American University in Cairo, Egypt, The National Bible Institute (now Shelton College), and New York University. He earned his Doctor of Theology degree from Luther Rice Seminary. In addition, Dr. Zodhiates has been the recipient of several honorary doctorates.
In 1946, he came to the United States at the invitation of the American Committee for the Evangelization of the Greeks. At that time, there were two part-time employees who met in a small, one-room office. Dr. Zodhiates became president of this organization in 1966. Now known as AMG International ('Advancing the Ministries of the Gospel'), it carries on a worldwide evangelistic and relief ministry with its headquarters located in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Dr. Zodhiates is a recognized authority on the Greek New Testament, and has edited an edition of the Modern Greek New Testament that was published by the Million Testaments Campaign and the American Bible Society. He is the author of numerous exegetical books and booklets in both the Greek and English languages. In addition, he was heard daily on the New Testament Light radio program, released over a network of stations across the United States and Canada.
After suffering numerous health problems in the late 1990s, Zodhiates transitioned out of active work, though many of his commentary manuscripts are still being edited and published, and his radio and television recordings are being redistributed digitally. He died in Chattanooga on October 10, 2009.
I don't know what I'd do without Word Study resources from AMG Publishers. They are my way of constantly attending seminary while staying put in my office to write Bible studies. In a nutshell, AMG makes me smarter than I am.
