The "concordant method" -- and also the peculiar "Concordant"  
conception of the aorist and how it ought to be translated, is  
controversial (at best); we had a thread on this matter that you can  
peruse in the archives: April 27, 2006 with subject-header "[B-Greek]  
Concordant Literal New Testament." For my part, I would NOT advise  
anyone who is in the early stages of learning Biblical Greek to make  
use of it. One feature of the "concordant" view is a very-badly- 
flawed endeavor to represent all compounded words in terms of  
etymologies of the elements compounded; it is a textbook case of the  
etymological fallacy. It is clearly set forth in their own  
illustrated page at
