Where does it say, “the love of money is the root of all evil?”

In a Bible “concordance”—an invaluable study tool that gives an index of principle words in a book, and gives the passage where the certain word or phrase is found.

We have Hugo of Caro, a Dominican monk to thank!
Hugo’s concordance, based on the Latin Vulgate, became the basis for others that followed, listing words and passages in alphabetical order.
The first printed concordance of the Septuagint—the Greek version of the Old Testament —was published in 1718 and was popular for a hundred years.
Perhaps one of the most well-known for students of the English Bible is Young’s Exhaustive Concordance—with over 300,000 biblical references to the original Hebrew and Greek words.
Engage with the Bible—and with all its tools of study!
