  • Kris Piper on Matthew 4:8
    I think in order to understand this verse a word study needs to be done on both the words "Kingdoms" and the word "World" in my own notes I have found that the word "World" according to Strongs Concordance of the Bible which would give more insight to the verse. For example if you were to look up the word "World" in a concordance...it is the greek word "Kosmos" meaning the universe. Which comes from the another greek word "Komizo"(according to the New testament greek Lexicon) in which we get the primary greek word "Komeo" meaning 4 different things: 1 to care for, provide for, take care of
    2. to take up, carry away in order to care for and preserve.
    3. bear off
    4. to carry, bear, bring to, to carry away for one's self, to carry off what is one's own, to bring back.
    I also believe that an understanding of how the ancients viewed the Universe is also needed to understand this verse. So that means a study of Ancient greek words such as "Komos" is needed because that acient grek word is still in use to today to describe outer space, the stars, the planets, and what goes on up there. Examples: Cosminaut, Cosmic, Cosmos(modern english)= Kosmos (ancient greek)
