Going through the New Testament verse by verse, the New Linguistic and Exegetical Key to the Greek New Testament provides help in three areas: LexicalIt identifies unusual and uncommon word forms that in the past had to be looked up in a lexicon, as well as their meaning, based on BAGD and other standard lexicons. GrammaticalIt provides grammatical insights from the leading Greek grammars, including Wallace's Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics. ExegeticalAs the title of this revised and expanded edition indicates, The New Linguistic and Exegetical Key to the Greek New Testament also provides the reader with a wealth of exegetical insights and nuances, as well as references to a wide range of commentaries, monographs, journal articles, historical works, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and so forth.
