Scripture Words Defined

Body, Soul, and Spirit

Under Construction


This study will review the Scripture regarding the meaning of body, soul and spirit. I will focus particularly upon the New Testament meanings of those terms and how they relate to one another and to our daily lives. Many translations display their theological bias in equating the terms soul and spirit or by making them interchangeable at times. Some people believe that people only have two aspects, material and immaterial. When people use such terminology, they often overlook or confuse the Scriptural distinctions between body and soul. This study will not be exhaustive, but merely illustrate some of the highlights of the terms body, soul and spirit.
