Many believers use some type of dictionary to aide them in their studies. In an attempt to gain a better understanding of certain words, we have used Strong’s Concordance, Smith’s Bible Dictionary, Easton’s Bible Dictionary, and Vine’s Expository Dictionary. Normally, what the dictionary defines a word to be is what we tend to accept and believe that word to be. But have you ever wondered how a word gets into the dictionary? We discovered that the dictionary is not designed to tell us what a word means. The dictionary is designed to give us the correct word spelling, to tell us the history of a word, to tell us how that word has been used throughout the years, and to tell us when it first appeared in the language.
