It was my intention that the book should retain the character indicated by the title without growing into a Hellenistic grammar, or into an exhaustive handbook, but should remain a practical tool in which theologians, philologians and linguists, pastors and scholars, and students can find, not everything, but as much usable data, analysis and interpretation, and as many bibliographical leads as possible. - Preface to the fourth edition.

The "Greek-German Dictionary of Writings from the New Testament and Early Christian Literature" is one of the standard works for New Testament scholars, researchers in patristics, and classical philologists. The 6th edition has been completely revised in all respects - in the NT text-base (both with respect to its comprehensiveness and the provision of variants) and in the Apostolic Fathers and the New Testament Apocrypha (these have been incorporated as comprehensively as possible for the first time). In addition, the Apologists and Early Church Fathers have been cited far more frequently than was previously the case. Numerous authors from the Christian, intertestamentary and classical fields have been referenced for the first time. Over 250 new articles have been included. The new typography speeds up searching and makes the structure of the articles more transparent. Thus, it waspossible to expand the material by about a third without increasing the number of pages.
Companion to Basics of New Testament Syntax and Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics
Author: Daniel B. Wallace,Grant Edwards
Daniel B. Wallace’s groundbreaking books Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics: An Exegetical Syntax of the New Testament and Basics of New Testament Syntax have become the standard textbooks among colleges and seminaries for teaching New Testament Greek syntax. This workbook, designed to accompany both books, presents a dynamic approach to learning Greek syntax. Instead of simply learning syntax in single-verse snippets, students are exposed to all of the major syntactical categories in exegetically and theologically significant passages.

"Jesus Christ entered into the history of our world. Christianity, therefore, has historical basis. The backbone of history is chronology. Whereas history is a systematic account of events in relation to a nation, institution, science, or art; chronology is a science of time. It seeks to establish and arrange the dates of past events in their proper sequence. Thus chronology serves as a necessary framework upon which the events of history must be fitted. In this book (the author) attempts to establish certain fixed dates in our Lord's life." - Dr. Harold W. Hoehner. Dr. Hoehner has gathered a vast amount of data, both from Scripture and extrabiblical sources, to support his conclusions concerning key dates in the life of our Lord, among them: - The Date of Christ's Birth - The Commencement of Christ's Ministry - The Duration of Christ's Ministry - The Year of Christ's Crucifixion He carefully documents his position and compares the date available--including a study of Greek words, Roman law, and Jewish customs and prophecy.

"In Politics and Rhetoric in the Corinthian Epistles, L. L. Welborn explores the influence of ancient politics on the rhetoric of Paul's Corinthian correspondence. What Welborn discovers has clear and far-reaching implications for the interpretation of this important corpus of early Christian literature." "As it turns out, Paul was thoroughly familiar with the conventions of ancient political life. He used such techniques to dissuade his converts from faction, to exhort them to concord, to effect reconciliation, and even to defend his own character (as a leader worthy of their respect). Paul could count on the Corinthians' familiarity with the traditions of Greco-Roman politics. He did not need to discuss politics overtly. He could make use of political ideas and tactics to shape the Christian community. Welborn's investigations amply and clearly demonstrate how Paul made use of political ideas and strategies in his efforts to shape the Christian community." "When Paul's Corinthian correspondence is examined in its political context, fresh insights emerge regarding the situation in the church at Corinth and the character of Paul's correspondence with the church. The apparent schisms at Corinth, for example, long taken as reflections of conflicting theological views, appear as manifestations of a power struggle arising from social and economic differences. By forming factions, well-to-do Christians sought to control the new movement, to exercise some of the freedom and power of which they had heard Paul speak. Like Aristotle, Paul knew a divided state could not long stand against unified opposition." "Read in political context, Paul's correspondence with the Corinthians exemplifies the processes by which the ideals of Greece and Rome entered into the creation of a new society - the Christian ecclesia."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Communicating God's Word to the World
An In-Depth Look at Bible Translation ·The concerns, issues, and approaches ·The history ·The ins and outs of the translation task With a reach that covers the entire globe, the Bible is the best-selling, most earnestly studied book of all time. It has been translated into well over 1,000 languages, from those of global reach such as English, French, and Arabic, to a myriad of isolated tribal tongues. Yet while most readers of the English Bible have a favorite version, few understand how the different translations came about, or why there are so many, or what determines whether a particular translation is trustworthy. Written in tribute to one of today’s true translation luminaries, Dr. Ronald Youngblood, The Challenge of Bible Translation will open your eyes to the principles, the methods, the processes, and the intricacies of translating the Bible into language that communicates clearly, accurately, and powerfully to readers of many countries and cultures. This remarkable volume marshals the contributions of foremost translators and linguists. Never before has a single book shed so much light on Bible translation in so accessible a fashion. In three parts, this compendium gives scholars, students, and interested Bible readers an unprecedented grasp of: 1. The Theory of Bible Translation 2. The History of Bible Translation 3. The Practice of Bible Translation The Challenge of Bible Translation will give you a new respect for the diligence, knowledge, and care required to produce a good translation. It will awaken you to the enormous cost some have paid to bring the Bible to the world. And it will deepen your understanding of and appreciation for the priceless gift of God’s written Word.

The Humanity of Jesus in the Teaching of the Apostle Paul
Author: Stephen O. Stout
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
Does the Apostle Paul have any use for the person of Jesus presented in the Gospels? Critical scholarship thinks not, but this book argues that Paul not only mentions more than seventy specific details of the historical Jesus, but he also commends the character of Jesus and echoes His teachings repeatedly in his letters and sermons-in full agreement with the Gospel accounts. Stout examines Paul's intriguing description of the "Man Christ Jesus" (1 Tim 2:5) and suggests that this title fulfills the OT expectation of God appearing in human history as a man. In his incarnated humanity, the Man Christ Jesus accomplished salvation in the historical events of his life and death, and in his resurrected humanity, he appeared to Paul on the Damascus Road-rooting Paul's Christology deeply in human experience. Furthermore, Stout shows how Paul rests his concept of salvation on a neglected aspect of his doctrine-that the entire church is associated with the historical events of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, an association which also unites his church with one another in fellowship and service. This book, then, demonstrates that Paul's gospel rests upon Jesus as a man of history who brings salvation into human history in his life, death, and exaltation as the "Man Christ Jesus."

A well-respected New Testament scholar provides a substantive yet accessible commentary on this difficult and intriguing book of the Bible.
Author: W. L. Holleran,Wl Holleran
Publisher: Gregorian Biblical BookShop
The scope of this work is a methodical investigation of the account of Jesus'prayer between the Supper and the Arrest, as it is reported in the three synoptic gospels. In this respect it is an exegetical study. Its purpose is to determine as closely as possible the specific meaning which the authors of these accounts intended them to bear in the context of their own gospels. In this respect it is a study in biblical theology. The plan of the work is simple: part one is a detailed consideration of the empirical data of our problem in each of the synoptic accounts, dealing with the questions of textual criticism, exegesis and literary analysis. Part two is a theory of sources and redactions, which offers three explanatory hypotheses to answer the genetic questions raised by the data analyzed in part one. Part three is a theological synthesis of the meaning of the synoptic accounts and their sources, based on the findings of part one and two.
