Dr. James Strong and a team of scholars spent more than thirty-five years preparing the Strong's numbering system which has become the standard for identifying words with links to the original Greek and Hebrew words. With the numbering system tied to a particular word in English, the average lay-person can easily study the meanings of the Greek and Hebrew words. First published in 1890, this tool is still used today by pastors, scholars and laymen alike for nearly a century.
