Getting the right meaning & definition
Reviewed by (Timmy Tng, Singapore, Singapore, Singapore) - This is an excellent book to get into the real meaning of the word in the context of the chapter or verses. Christian is instructed in 2Tm 2:15 to study not just read the Bible. This dictionary carried my understanding of the scriptures deeper to understand the will of God. Reading on the surface is not good enough. The Living words of God demands that we dig into the treasures in the Bible. Use it often to explain the meaning of the words to all my senior folks in the Chinese class.

Great if you know the "work around"
Reviewed by (Scott Denham, Shambaugh, Iowa, USA) - All the text is there and a great resource for every bible student's library. the reason for my 3 star rating is that you have an extra hoop to jump through to use it. Vines is NOT keyed to the Strongs #s, the Greek or the Hebrew words. What you can do is click the English work in your Bible, and the definition opens--for that English word--but no guarantee it is the correct Greek/Hebrew word behind the text.To find the correct word, you have first know what word is used, then click the search (binocular icon) in the Vines tab, then enter your search, which may, or may not, lead you to the correct word in the verse. If you type the Greek word in the search, you must get the transliteration exact, or no results. I love it. I use it. But corrected, this would be an awesome module. Still worth buying, but know what you're getting into.

Vines is a Great Resource to have with E-Sword
Reviewed by (Raymond Clements, Portsmouth, Hamsphire, United Kingdom) - Having the Vines Dictionary has so enhanced my understanding of what the words in the scriptures really mean. In the western world many words have slightly or completely different meanings Especially in the English Language. The Vines has also highlighted the differences due to which manuscripts have been used and which bible translation you are using. I.e. KJV or RV.

The Finest Bible Dictionary

Although every scripture is not listed in the explanations, nevertheless, he gives the grammar, sense and meaning of each of the words used.

Great Resource, but challenging to use
Reviewed by (Jacob Westcott, Halifax, NS, Canada) - I love the explanation from the Vine's dictionary and how it brings deeper insights into passages. However navigating it on the iPad was very challenging. The quick search (top right of screen) can not be used with it and finding the word you want from the normal search (top left of screen) usually requires typing the in the Hebrew or Greek cross reference number. It would be nice for a list of the "d" or "e" or "f", etc. to pop up so you could scroll through them, but once you learn to navigate the program it does get a bit easier however I still keep my hard copy near by.

Vines-Clear and Concise
Reviewed by (Michael Driskill, Novato, CA, USA) - I love looking up the meaning of words. I feel I am living in a world which likes to guess what meanings are but does not comprehend the full extent of meanings. I have used Vine's for over 40 years. After I ordered this book for computer and iPad use, I discovered I still had a hard copy. However, combined with all the useful programs for the MAC, it is so much easier most of the time to just open up E-Sword X, type in the word, and have not only the original words used explained, but a resource of where the word(s) are used in their original context. I believe that any pastor or bible study teacher, or biblical buff would benefit from having this book on hand. Like a good dictionary, I never have to be a "revisionist" of God's Word. Thank you

My favorite dictionary
Reviewed by (Darrel Yontz, Albuquerque, NM, US) - Vine's is my favorite dictionary because it offers far more than a simple definition. Each entry has the definition and exposition to frame that definition into place for understanding. The "flavor" of each definition is given with scriptural back-up as to where each definition is used. This allows for understanding nuances of language when we don't have the expertise to know Greek. As a preacher, this is one of my most used reference books. Also, where some get "wordy" with definitions, Vine's remains concise but thorough.

I teach an adult Sunday School Class and have sometimes printed some parallel bible verses so we can study and compare the differing nuances in the context. I have not had time to use Vine's a lot but expect no less. I like the eStudySource interface as all the tools are available without scrolling through a lot of sub-menus, everything is at your fingertips. It make class preparation a joy as the need to find reference's is all at one place. Studying God's word is a joy,not a burden.

"Must Have" Reference Addition
Reviewed by (Walter Hofman, Burlington, Ontario, Canada) - If you are a genuine student of the Word, or a Pastor who takes adequate time to prepare messages, then you will quickly discover the remarkable research and wealth of information in this work to be a resource you call on over and over again. It just brings that added insight to so many Biblical passages that you will quickly be amazed at how such a small expense can deliver such a punch!
Reviewed by (Todd L, St. Louis, MO, US) - I was thrilled to see that Vine's had a dictionary on the Old Testament, too. I had not known that! I bought the hardbound Vine's on the New Testament somewhere around 1982, and found various expositions within it, very cool. I remember reading Vine's take on the "camel through a needle's eye" stating that there was no such historical evidence to the modern day teaching, which really impressed me, since I had a conviction that all these stories that were circulating from "pastors/teacher" seemed dubious.
Then, later on, I discovered Lamsa's Peshitta, and learned that Greek was not the language of the original New Testament, but rather Aramaic was, and furthermore the Aramaic word for "rope" very closely resembles "camel", shown in imagery side-by-side. What Jesus actually said, according to the Aramaic manuscripts of the gospels, was "It is easier for a rope to go through the eye of a needle, than it is for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven." How cool is that?!!
Vine's was right on the money! heheh

I have been an E-Sword user now for about 7 years or so. I am a chaplain, active at my church in ministry yet my one ministry that is close to my heart is a monthly visit to a local nursing home. My father in-law is a resident and my mother was until she passed away recently.I am very pleased with Vines Expository in the way his explanations always lead the student to the spiritual intent as the Bible must be understood. Now that I can access it so quickly on my E-sword, it makes my studying and preparation time not only quicker but also gives me the opportunity to compare all my study resources right there.E-Sword has enabled me to prepare messages that are timely and relevent even at the nursing home.Another resource is the Manners and Customs. Not only are people asking questions but they are being answered and moreover I am becoming a better student of the Bible.

I had it in hardcover form, but having it right on the eSword program is so handy. Being able to look up words without having to get up and break my concentration is very nice. Copying definitions over to study notes is so easy and painless. Along with Strong's, the two complement each other very well.

Knowlege is power
Reviewed by (Shaun Spies, Warner Beach, Kwazulu - Natal, South Africa) -
The Bible can not be studied enough. The more we learn, the more we realise how little we know. Understanding what is read, and the way it was meant to be read, in the original written languages, clears the muddy waters of our own understanding.
Knowledge is power, and we can only do our best as humans. Because of humility, and the knowledge that God is our protector, we can more easily submit to God, resist the devil, and know that he will flee.
In humility and knowledge we therefore know that it is not because of us, but Jesus Christ in us, that allows us to claim victory in His name.

A Valuable Resource

I had already bought Quick Verse for $200-300 when I came across e-Sword. It didn't take me long to put Quick Verse aside and use e-Sword exclusively.

Tending the Vine

Finally, I have access to the REAL words that were originally used. I've often wondered how people were able to know which Greek word in particular was used in this or that scripture - even though the English word was the same. Now I know! I'm loving exploring the different perspectives that pop into mind as I experiment with reading the verse again combining the Vines Dictionary description as I go. And I am sure the Vine will bear more fruit for me (and possibly another star) once I really get the hang of it. When it comes to using the Vine's - I Just Love that little set of Binoculars - they're helping me find all manner of words and descriptions of words. Gotta Love'em! (God Bless whoever thought to put those little binoculars into the program!!)

I downloaded e-Sword at the suggestion of my pastor. I had started re-reading Genesis again and had lots of questions, most of which were along the line of, "What does the ORIGINAL word mean"? e-Sword is a great resource, but I needed more, so I purchased Vine's Dictionary. It's worth the buy. It enables me to answer most of my language questions myself now. If you want to know, like I did, what does the ORIGINAL WORD MEAN, consider getting Vine's dictionary for your e-Sword esuite.

This is about the best resource for a study of words for the average student. This version also links in Strongs numbers which is a big help. Look up "ask" to see when the word for an equal asking an equal is used, and when it is a lesser asking a greater. Christ used the word for an equal asking an equal. The leaders could see he was claiming equality with the father. This book is a must!

Vine's Expository dictionaries of the Old Testament and the New Testament have been an essential tool for Bible students for a long time - the material that they contain is invaluable in sermon preparation and Bible study.

I Wouldn't be Without this Resource
Reviewed by (Cindy Skillman, Rapid City, SD, USA) -
This is an excellent resource for discovering the many possible meanings of the original language words. Does a word seem out of place? I can search and search through the many versions of the bible available on E-Sword, plus others unavailable, but how do I decide which one I should believe? Maybe more than one is correct. The ancients were as capable of double meanings as we are, I'm sure. Vine's is a huge part of helping me to understand what some of those double or hidden meanings might have been. I am not a student of biblical Greek (though if I had time . . .), and realize the short-comings of trying to understand based on dictionary definitions. Still, I think knowing these things is very helpful. With the guidance of the Spirit of Christ, I find Vine's to be a vital resource and I would hate to have to do without it. Thanks for publishing it for E-Sword!
