"For Placer (ὁ θεὸς) so loved the system (τὸν κόσμον), that he gave his uniquely-becoming (μονογενῆ) son that whosoever is trusting into the same, should not be from-whole-loosed (ἀπόληται), but have life of unconditional-being (αἰώνιον)."
METHOD Lexicons, generally, give a variety of meanings for one word. The student chooses the meaning of his liking -- The word meanings in this lexicon have been narrowed to a singular meaning. This narrowing is done by testing various meanings in all of the NT contexts where the word occurs. A meaning is ultimately found that fits in every context. The opinion of the analyzer takes a beating. Subjectivism is overruled, as the meaning is discovered as determined by usage in God's book. It is a fundamental proposition that the one mind of God is thus consistent when he communicates. The lexicon is complete, numbering nearly the same as the approximate 5,010 in Strong's Concordance. Strong includes c.614 proper names, with his total being 5,624.
