Word Study Greek-English New Testament with Complete Concordance (edited by Paul R. McReynolds, Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, 1998) - (Available at http://www.borders.com, http://www.bn.com, http://www.christianbook.com.). This is a uniquely valuable study aid. It includes the NRSV text on the left column with interlinear text to the right of the NRSV text. The interlinear text includes three parallel rows of text on top of each other. In the middle row is the United Bible Society's Greek New Testament, Third Edition, Greek text. Above each Greek work is the coinciding Strong's number. Below each Greek word is the literal English translation of that word.
There are quite a few other interlinear Greek-English New Testaments and quite a few other Greek-English concordances. Word Study Greek-English New Testament with Complete Concordance's (WSGENT) inclusion of (1) the Strong's numbers with the Greek-English text together with (2) a complete Greek-based English concordance, arranged numerically by the coinciding Strong' numbers, makes this an especially convenient and valuable resource.
The special value of a Greek-based English concordance is that you are not dependent upon a concordance that is based upon one of the many English translations. Using the Strong's number system and without having to know any Greek, you conveniently can research all of the occurrences of each Greek word used in the New Testament. Using WSGENT also has the following advantages over using Strong's Exhaustive Concordance or Young's Analytical Concordance.
