So many people are lost and confused about the wonderful and simple message of the New Testament. A good way to develop an understanding is to look for key concepts that are easy to grasp. These build context when organized into a lexicon (Λεξικόν). Things like community, church, love, brotherhood and family are starting points. φιλία (filia or filao) is an important Greek word.
