English Derivatives from The Greek New Testament
Above: This is the title page of the book English Derivatives from the Greek New Testament.
ENGLISH DERIVATIVES FROM THE GREEK NEW TESTAMENT was written by Charles Van der Pool the translator of The Apostolic Bible. The word “derive” means, “To have as a source.” The source or root of many English words are Greek words, and English derivatives retain a resemblance of the original Greek word in pronunciiation and spelling. For example, the word “philosophy” is derived from two Greek words, transliterated as “philos” and “sophia.” The word “philos” means “friend” and “sophia” means “wisdom,” and combined they mean “friend of wisdom.” Therefore the word “philosophy” is an English derivative from the Greek language.

alphabet with true Greek pronunciation, and memorizing Greek vocabulary.
