This is an online Bible dictionary of theological terms. You can use this as a handy reference tool to quickly look up some of the most used Bible terms as well as ones that are often confused.
These theological definitions are our own. Occasionally commentary is included in the definition such as common questions surrounding the term and the typical response to such questions. One should not presuppose our support for a position based on a definition; instead definitions are based on commonly held beliefs.
These definitions are written in layman’s terms in an effort to make them understandable by everyone, not just people with theological training. Definitions are cross-referenced and links to articles are provided that will explain some terms in greater detail and give a fuller context of the discussion as well as opposing viewpoints.
Because of this, definitions are not exhaustive and there could be more than one meaning to each term. If you are interested in more exhaustive definitions, we recommend checking out this useful list of Bible tools.
