Grace Scriptures

What are the scriptures where grace is used?

In much of our bible reading of the New Testament we encounter words that mean what they say, but occasionally we read right over a word that has been assigned a different word than what we are used to looking for.  Unfortunately, unless you have a concordance right beside you while you read, you don’t even know that this has happened.  This page is devoted to the scriptures where grace is listed in any of its 156 forms.   From the table below you can select the New Testament book and find listed the verses that contain the Greek word “charis.”  In some passages the theme of charis runs from verse to verse.  In those instances I have grouped the verses together to give a more complete understanding of how the word is being used in its many forms.

Strong’s Definition

G5485 χάρις

charis   khar’-ece

From G5463; graciousness (as gratifying), of manner or act (abstract or concrete; literal, figurative or spiritual; especially the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life; including gratitude): – acceptable, benefit, favour, gift, grace (-ious), joy liberality, pleasure, thank (-s, -worthy).

A word of note:

The verses that you are about to view are selected solely on the basis of the word “charis” being contained within it.  It does not show the verse in context. You are required to make the effort of reading these verses in their full context.  Due to this manner of extracting verses from the bible I want to make it very clear: I am not building a doctrine out of these verses simply because I can pull them out of context. Any, and all, doctrine must take into account the full counsel of the word of God found in scripture as each writer was inspired by the Holy Spirit.  This chart is simply a tool of study on this topic. Use it for future study at your own discretion.
