I'm trying to research the uses (similarities and differences) of the Greek words translated as "sin", "nature", "flesh", and any others I am not considering. Is there any way to do such a search easily? I'm not entirely sure what to ask so I am sorry if this is vague. It just seems very time consuming to find each occurrence in an English translation of each word (while potentially missing some) and then searching the Greek word. Anyway, any help would be appreciated.

If you own the right resources / datasets, you should be able to accomplish this with a Bible Word Study. Right click on "sin" in a Bible with a reverse interlinear and choose "Bible Word Study."

Bible Sense Lexicon can help you find words with similar lexical meaning and help you build a search string that will identify passages of scripture for study. E.g. <Sense = sinful humanity ⇔ flesh>, <Sense = sin>, <Sense = unrighteousness>, <Sense sin (act)>, <Sense = mortal sin (deadly sin)>,  <Sense = evildoing>, <Sense = wrongdoing>

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

<Sense sin> includes two children <Sense sinful humanity ⇔ body> and <Sense sinful humanity ⇔ flesh>

<Sense unrighteousness> includes five children (and their nine grandchildren) <Sense dishonesty> , <Sense impiety> , <Sense injustice (practice)><Sense sin> , <Sense ungodliness>

<Sense immorality> is the parent of <Sense unrighteousness> that includes two siblings of unrighteousness plus their children

<Sense bad quality> is the parent of <Sense immorality> that likewise includes more senses:

<Sense wrongdoing> includes <Sense evildoing> , <Sense sin (act)> , <Sense mortal sin (deadly act)> plus more.

Suggest searching for (<Sense bad quality> OR <Sense wrongdoing>) to find many original language words for sin/nature/flesh

Keep Smiling Smile
