A Bible Dictionary is a reference resource that gives concisely worded definitions and biblical, historical and theological information - about people, places, words and events found in the Bible - all in alphabetical order. Some dictionaries may also have articles on theological terms that are not in the Bible, such as the word "trinity". They also offer help with hard to pronounce Biblical words. Bible Dictionaries can help answer the questions, "what does the word 'repentance' mean?" or "who was Mary Magdalene?" or "where and what was 'Ephesus'?" It is important to know which Bible translation you use as Dictionaries are keyed to specific translations.
