Greek English Lexicon of the New Testament & Other Early Christian Literature 3rd Edition

Greek English Lexicon of the New Testament & Other Early Christian Literature 3rd Edition
$175.00
Described as an invaluable reference work (Classical Philology) and a tool indispensable for the study of early Christian literature (Religious Studies Review) in its previous edition, this new updated American edition of Walter Bauer's Wörterbuch zu den Schriften des Neuen Testaments builds on its predecessor's staggering deposit of extraordinary erudition relating to Greek literature from all periods. Including entries for many more words, the new edition also lists more than 25,000 additional references to classical, intertestamental, Early Christian, and modern literature.

In this edition, Frederick W. Danker's broad knowledge of Greco-Roman literature, as well as papyri and epigraphs, provides a more panoramic view of the world of Jesus and the New Testament. Danker has also introduced a more consistent mode of reference citation, and has provided a composite list of abbreviations to facilitate easy access to this wealth of information.

Perhaps the single most important lexical innovation of Danker's edition is its inclusion of extended definitions for Greek terms. For instance, a key meaning of episkopos was defined in the second American edition as overseer; Danker defines it as one who has the responsibility of safeguarding or seeing to it that something is done in the correct way, guardian. Such extended definitions give a fuller sense of the word in question, which will help avoid both anachronisms and confusion among users of the lexicon who may not be native speakers of English.

Danker's edition of Bauer's Wörterbuch will be an indispensable guide for Biblical and classical scholars, ministers, seminarians, and translators.

The first textbook that systematically links syntax and exegesis of the New Testament--perfect for students of Greek who are second-year or at an intermediate level.

For seminary students, the goal of studying Greek grammar in the first place is to ultimately get beyond the grammar itself and understand it well enough to use it in the accurate exegesis of biblical texts.

Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics--the most up-to-date Greek grammar available--integrates the technical requirements for proper Greek interpretation with the actual interests and needs of Bible students. It explores numerous syntactical categories, some of which have not previously been dealt with in print, and has a number of distinguishing features, including:

  • Exegetically significant illustrations, discussed in depth.
  • Semantic situations--or contexts for simple semantics--are developed and analyzed.
  • Expanded definitions and numerous examples and syntactical categories.
  • Grammatical statistics listed at the beginning of major sections.
  • Scores of charts, tables, and graphs.
  • Sound exegesis requires that the exegete consider grammar within a larger framework that includes context, lexeme, and other linguistic features. This textbook faithfully equips intermediate Greek students with the skills they need to do exegesis of biblical texts in a way that is faithful to their intended meaning.

    The expanded edition contains a subject index, a Greek word index, and page numbers in the Syntax Summary section.

    Hebrew & Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament 2 Volume Set

    Hebrew & Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament 2 Volume Set
    $333.00
    This is the Study Edition of the The Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament, which has proven to be a valuable resource for scholars and students, now published in two handy volumes. In this Study Edition the complete vocabulary of the Hebrew Bible, including texts in Aramaic, is available. The dictionary combines scholarly thoroughness with easy accessibility, and so meets the needs of a wide range of users. The enormous advances that have taken place in the field of Semitic linguistics since the days of the older dictionaries of Classical Hebrew are well documented and assessed, as well as the often detailed discussions in modern Bible commentaries of words where the meaning is particularly difficult. The alphabetical ordering of entries rather than the traditional arrangement of words according to their roots is particularly helpful to the new student, and also saves the advanced user much time. This 2 volume edition is an unabridged version of the five volume edition of The Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament.

    This set replaces the 5-volume set with ISBN 9789004119567.

    An academic staple updated for the first time in fifteen years, David Alan Black's user-friendly introduction to New Testament Greek keeps discussion of grammar as non-technical as possible. The simplified explanations, basic vocabularies, and abundant exercises are designed to prepare the student for subsequent practical courses in exegesis, while the linguistic emphasis lays the groundwork for later courses in grammar. Revisions to this third edition include updated discussions and scholarship, further back matter vocabulary references, and additional appendices.

    A streamlined introductory grammar that will prove popular in the classroom.

    --Murray J. Harris, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

    Clear charts, clear examples, clear discussion--what more could one want from a beginning grammar!

    --Darrell L. Bock, Dallas Theological Seminary

    . . . combines the strengths of a fairly traditional sequence of topics, in generally manageable chunks with clear explanations fully abreast of modern linguistics.

    --Craig L. Blomberg, Denver Seminary

    Pedagogically conceived, linguistically informed, hermeneutically sensitive, biblically focused--unique among beginning grammars. It sets a new standard.

    Following intensive preparatory work, the Nestle-Aland 28th Edition (NA28) of the Novum Testamentum Graece is now available. This standard and globally preeminent reference among Greek New Testament editions has been fundamentally revised and improved. The structure of the critical apparatus was simplified and includes the combination of variants using sed or et and the distinction between consistently cited witnesses of the first and second order have now been removed.

    Additionally, the readings of the newly discovered Papyri 117-127 are listed for the first time, opening up interesting perspectives particularly for the Acts of the Apostles. In the Catholic Epistles, this edition has been made consistent with the Editio Critica Maior. This led to more than 30 modifications in the main text and resulted in a critical apparatus which is newly compiled in its entirety for this section and includes a new selection of witnesses and variants. The cross-references in the margin were also systematically revised and supplemented mainly with references to early Jewish literature.
  • The standard edition of the Greek New Testament extensively revised
  • The structure of the critical apparatus consistently simplified
  • For the first time with the readings of Papyri 117-127
  • A thorough revision of the Catholic Epistles with more than 30 modifications in the main text
  • The cross-references systematically revised and supplemented
  • Includes a Greek dictionary with English definitions

    Text of the New Testament Its Transmission Corruption & Restoration 4th Edition

    Text of the New Testament Its Transmission Corruption & Restoration 4th Edition
    $84.99
    This thoroughly revised edition of Bruce M. Metzger's classic work is the most up-to-date manual available for the textual criticism of the New Testament. The Text of the New Testament, Fourth Edition, has been invigorated by the addition of Bart D. Ehrman--author of numerous best-selling books on the New Testament--as a coauthor. This revision brings the discussion of such important matters as the early Greek manuscripts and methods of textual criticism up to date, integrating recent research findings and approaches into the body of the text (as opposed to previous revisions, which compiled new material and notes into appendices). The authors also examine new areas of interest, including the use of computers in the collection and evaluation of manuscript evidence and the effects that social and ideological influences had upon the work of scribes. The standard text for courses in biblical studies and the history of Christianity since its first publication in 1964, The Text of the
    New Testament is poised to become a definitive resource for a whole new generation of students.

    This work is a companion volume to the fourth edition of the United Bible Societies' Greek New Testament (UBS4), published by the German Bible Society on behalf of the United Bible Societies early in 1993. It also makes a great companion to the Stuttgart Electronic Study Bible, which contains the critical apparatus of the NA27 Novum Testamentum Graece, and to Comfort & Barrett's Text of the Earliest New Testament Greek Manuscripts.One of the chief purposes of the commentary is to set forth the reasons that led the Committee, or a majority of the members of the Committee, to adopt certain variant readings for inclusion in the text and to relegate certain other readings to the apparatus. On the basis of a record of the voting of the Committee, as well as, for most sessions, more or less full notes of the discussions that preceded the voting, the present writer has sought to frame and express concisely (a) the main problem or problems involved in each set of variants and (b) the Committee's evaluation and resolution of those problems.

    Bruce Manning Metzger (1914-2007) was the George L. Collord Professor of New Testament Language and Literature Emeritus at Princeton Theological Seminary. He was the author of hundreds of articles on Bible translation, textual criticism, the Hebrew Bible, the Apocrypha, and the New Testament. He published numerous books, including The New Testament: Its Background, Growth, and Content; The Text of the New Testament; Manuscripts of the Greek Bible; A Textual Commentary on the Greek New Testament; Lexical Aids for Students of New Testament Greek; and The Canon of the New Testament. He was the general editor of the New Testament Tools and Studies series, The Reader's Digest Bible, and The Oxford Companion to the Bible and was on the editorial boards of the International Greek New Testament Project, the United Bible Societies' Greek New Testament, the Revised Standard Version of the Bible, and the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible. He was ordained in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
