The tables in the documents below index equivalents between the terms that occur in the Greek Reconstruction and Hebrew Reconstruction columns of the Life of Yeshua reconstruction documents. They are a work in progress, which are subject to change as the LOY team continues to refine their reconstructions in light of their ongoing research. The documents were designed as an aid to producing future reconstructions as a way to keep track of the decisions that were made in the reconstructions completed thus far. While partially incomplete and constantly in flux, the LOY team has found these indices to be powerful reconstruction tools.
