Hi,What that bible does is utilize the "strongs" numbers. which simply means that each greek word in the new testament was is give a number and that number when looked up you can find a definition of that greek word and other occurrences of it.Either there is a appendix in the back of that bible with those numbers that you can look up or you can search them online here:http://www.blueletterbible.org/search.cfm#strongsI find this much easier and better to use. I personally use it, its a new edition and its great:[b]Key Word Study Bible KJV (2008 new edition), Hardcover [/b]http://www.christianbook.com/key-word-study-bible-kjv-hardcover/9780899577456/pd/7745X?event=AAI

Noun. I get that..Bestowed is PFI, "Perfect indicatiove active"I have no clue.Called is ASBP. "aorist subjunctive passive"I need school now, cant afford it...I need to learn what these mean...Any ideas...thanks.I have a whole card key with these abbreviations on them.
Hi Poet,Unfortunately there is no short cut. I would recommmend "Idioms of the Greek New Testament" by Stanley Porter... its not an easy read but it will explain these terms. If you can find a way to take some courses on ancient Greek some of this would begin to make some more sense to you.
