Overview

Volume 3---The English translation of the three-volume Exegetisches Wörterbuch zum Neuen Testament, this monumental work by an ecumenical group of scholars is first of all a complete English dictionary of New Testament Greek. Going beyond that, however EDNT also serves as a guide to the usage of every New Testament word in its various contexts, and it makes a significant contribution to New Testament exegesis and theology. EDNT's thorough, lengthy discussions of more significant words and its grouping of words related by root and meaning (with alphabetical cross-references) distinguish it from simpler Greek-English lexicons. Advancing the discussion of the Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament, EDNT summarizes more recent treatments of numerous questions in New Testament study and takes into consideration newer viewpoints of linguistics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

-- The Bible Today
"A superb New Testament dictionary, translated and adapted from the famed German original. Both students and scholars will welcome this reference tool. It covers each Greek word in the New Testament, offering a translation plus succinct information on usage, background, and further bibliographical references."

-- Interpretation
"This is a solid reference work, one that not only scholars but also pastors and students can use with benefit."

Library Journal
This work treats every word (though not all occurrences) in the Greek New Testament. All articles include standard lexical data, significant occurrences, and meaning--determined with emphasis on grammatical and theological context. Longer articles are accompanied by bibliographies and provide extensive discussion of the word (or word group) divided into sections emphasizing its importance to particular New Testament books or writers. Although there will be an English index in the third volume, thus making the dictionary accessible to those with little or no knowledge of Greek, many of the scholarly, complex articles will be difficult for nonspecialists. Specialists will find this dictionary thorough and up to date. Highly recommended for religious studies collections.--Craig W. Beard, Harding Univ. Lib., Searcy, Ark.
