Building a Biblical Heritage Vocabulary


BHC Guideline for Discovering the Meanings of Words


A word or phrase is a group of symbols or sounds 

with an attached bundle of associations that determine meaning.
The bundle of associations consists of the Source’s culture, historical time period,
geographical location and personal experiences.


The Source is the person writing or speaking the words.

Our first priority is discovering the Source’s meaning(s) of his or her words.
