The New Testament was written in the common form of the Greek language. Here are some important Greek words found in the New Testament. Each word is transliterated into English and defined below. I also added some Bible passages where each Greek word can be found. I will also include reference notes for Strong’s Concordance numbers.

Below is a list of the Greek Alphabet letters, followed by words that use that particular letter as the first one in the word. (This mostly empty list will be updated as time allows).

Alpha

Apostle (Messenger) = Apostolos

Apostolos is a noun that refers to the person carrying news that a battle has been won as an official representative of the General who led the army into battle (see Euangelion below). This word is used in Philippians 2: 25 (ESV) which says “I have thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus…your Apostolos (Apostle)…”

(Apostolos is number G652 in Strong’s Concordance).

Good News (Gospel) = Euangelion

Euangelion is a word that refers to the message that a messenger returning from a battlefield has to let people know the battle is over and they are completely safe now because the enemy who was coming to destroy their lives has been defeated.

This word is used in Matthew 24:14 (ESV) which says “And this (Euangelion) of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14 ESV)

(Euangelion is number G2098 in Strong’s Concordance).
