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.

Frederick William Danker, a world-renowned scholar of New Testament Greek, is widely acclaimed for his 2000 revision of Walter Bauer’s A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature. With more than a quarter of a million copies in print, it is considered the finest dictionary of its kind. Danker’s Concise Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament will prove to be similarly invaluable to ministers, seminarians, translators, and students of biblical Greek. Unlike other lexica of the Greek New Testament, which give only brief glosses for headwords, The Concise Greek-English Lexicon offers extended definitions or explanations in idiomatic English for all Greek terms. Each entry includes basic etymological information, short renderings, information on usage, and plentiful biblical references. Greek terms that could have different English definitions, depending on context, are thoughtfully keyed to the appropriate passages. An overarching aim of The Concise Greek-English Lexicon is to assist the reader in recognizing the broad linguistic and cultural context for New Testament usage of words. The Concise Greek-English Lexicon retains all the acclaimed features of A Greek-English Lexicon in a succinct and affordable handbook, perfect for specialists and nonspecialists alike.

Excerpt from Vollstandiges Griechisch-Deutsches Handworterbuch zu den Schriften des Neuen Testaments und der Ubrigen Urchristlichen Literatur Durch einzelne Berichtigungen und Hinweise haben die Arbeit in dankenswerter Weise gefordert die Herren d'ales, cronert, dittmar, Goonsrnnn, meinertz, hschoene (basel), ide zwaan (heemse); auch hachlelis hat aus seinen Kollek tancen einige wertvolle Erganzungen beigesteuert. Die Nachtrage und Berichtigungen, die leider notig geworden sind, bitte ich vor dem Gebrauch des Buches durchzusehen; man kann etwa am Rand durch ein Zeichen auf sie verweisen. Der Gang der Korrektur war folgender: die Fahnenkorrektur wurde gelesen von corssen, lietzmann, nestle und dem Verf.; die Zitate wurden samtlich vom Verf. Und gleichzeitig, von den umfangreichen Artikeln abgesehen, von nestle nachgepruft, der mit nie ermudender Sorgfalt auf Lucken hinwies. Cobssen prufte besonders die Disposition der Artikel und verbesserte an unzahligen Stellen schiefe Ausdrucksweise, Unklarheiten, falsche Ubersetzungen und fragwurdige Interpretationen. Den Hebraicis (sig. 37-50 ausgenommen) wandte der Direktor der linguistischen Abteilung im Hause W. Drugulin, Herr Dr. Chamzer seine besondere Aufmerksamkeit zu und uberwachte auch sonst die sorgfaltige Ausfuhrung der Korrektur, die durch die trefl' liche Arbeit des Setzers, Herrn strankneeyer wesentlich erleichtert wurde. Die erste Revision las auer dem Verf. Herr Dr. Ausfeld in Darmstadt, die weiteren der Verf. Allein. Herr Professor Dr. Wendlani) konnte leider nur die ersten Bogen lesen; Arbeitsuberhaufung machte ihm eine weitere Teilnahme an der Korrektur unmoglich. Ich erwahne das, nicht um das Vorwort mit stolzen Namen zu schmucken, wie ein Rezensent mir untergeschcben hat, sondern damit auch der Leser wei, wem er zu danken hat, wenn sich das Buch als ein zuverlassiger Fuhrer erweist. Welche Mangel der Arbeit trotz dieser unschatzbaren Hilfe anhaften, ' erkennt niemand besser als ich. Gegenuber von dem, was andere als Mangel empfinden werden, kann ich mich freilich mit dem Worte Tertullians trosten malumus in scripturis, si forte, minus sapere, quam contra.

Studying the New Testament requires a determination to encounter this collection of writings on its own terms. This classic introduction by Charles B. Puskas, revised with C. Michael Robbins, provides helpful guidance. Since the publication of the first edition, which was in print for twenty years, a host of new and diverse cultural, historical, social-scientific, socio-rhetorical, narrative, textual, and contextual studies has been examined. Attentive also to the positive reviews of the first edition, the authors retain the original tripartite arrangement on 1) the world of the New Testament, 2) interpreting the New Testament, and 3) Jesus and early Christianity. This volume supplies readers with pertinent primary and secondary material. The new edition carries on a genuine effort to be nonsectarian, and although it is more of a critical introduction than a general survey, it is recommended to midlevel college and seminary students and to anyone who wants to be better informed about the New Testament.

Who do you say that I am? Whether or not you know it, this question, posed by Jesus, is the most important question you'll ever answer. But it's not only a question for those who haven't trusted Jesus for salvation; it's also one for those who call themselves followers of Christ. Many will claim to know the answer, but even Peter, who answered it correctly, didn't fully understand who Jesus was until later. And in a culture two millennia removed, Jesus' true identity and purpose are often obscure, making His question relevant and vital, both for non-Christians and Christians alike. This Bible Companion is designed to help you answer His question, so that you might know Jesus?the real Jesus as revealed in the Bible. But be warned. This book doesn't offer a mere biographical study because He was no mere man. Regardless of what you think of Jesus, encountering Him in the Bible is a mind-changing and life-altering event. So, if you're ready to answer Jesus' question truthfully, then this Bible Companion will serve as a good guide to His life and teachings. And it can help you grow to know Him better than you ever have.

Thiselton on Hermeneutics

The Collected Works and New Essays of Anthony Thiselton

Hermeneutics is an interdisciplinary study of how we interpret texts, especially biblical texts, in the light of theories of understanding in philosophy, meaning in literary theory, and of theology. This volume brings together the seminal thought of a leading contemporary pioneer in this field. Thiselton's The Two Horizons was a classic on how horizons of biblical texts engage creatively with the horizons of the modern world. The author's later New Horizons in Hermeneutics explored still more deeply the transforming capacities of biblical texts, while his massive commentary on 1 Corinthians interpreted an epistle. This volume collects many of Anthony Thiselton's more notable writings from some seven books and 70 articles, to which he adds his own re-appraisals of earlier work. It uniquely expounds the thought of a major contemporary British theologian through his own words, and includes his own critical assessments.

Paul and the Vocation of Israel

How Paul's Jewish Identity Informs his Apostolic Ministry, with Special Reference to Romans

The Apostle Paul was the greatest early missionary of the Christian gospel. He was also, by his own admission, an Israelite. How can both these realities coexist in one individual? This book argues that Paul viewed his mission to the Gentiles, in and of itself, as the primary expression of his Jewish identity. The concept of Israel’s divine vocation is used to shed fresh light on a number of much-debated passages in Paul’s letter to the Romans.

Politics and Rhetoric in the Corinthian Epistles

Category: Religion
Page: 238
View: 3737
"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.

"Concord and Peace"

A Rhetorical Analysis of the First Letter of Clement with an Emphasis on the Language of Unity and Sedition
Author: Odd Magne Bakke
Publisher: Mohr Siebeck

Category: Religion
Page: 390
View: 6672
Odd Magne Bakke presents the first in-depth study of 1 Clement from the standpoint of the letter's rhetoric. He bases his methodological analysis on tools from the Graeco-Roman rhetorical tradition, using both the handbooks as well as actual speeches and letters. These are supplemented by tools from modern text linguistics, which the author uses to do a compositional analysis of the letter, and by the tools of modern semantics, used to establish the language of concord in 1 Clement which it has in common with other relevant ancient literature. The author's approach constitutes a fresh reading of 1 Clement and provides new suggestions on several important issues in the immense research on the letter. He demonstrates both the thematic and argumentative unity of the letter. Its macro-structure reflects the conventional parts of the dispositio of ancient rhetoric ( exordium, narratio, probatio, peroratio ). Also, the sub-texts on different levels of these parts are shown to be integrated into and to serve Clement's overall argument for re-establishing concord and peace in the Corinthian church. Odd Magne Bakke questions the traditional views that the conflict in this church was between 'spirit' and 'office' or was a matter of 'doctrine'. He argues that Clement primarily regarded it as a conflict between people of different socio-economic statuses in which a struggle for honor appeared to be an important aspect.

Das Exegetische Worterbuch zum Neuen Testament wurde von mehr als 150 evangelischen und katholischen Autorinnen und Autoren aus dem deutschsprachigen und internationalen Raum erarbeitet und stellt eines der gelungenen Beispiele okumenischer Zusammenarbeit dar. Das spiegelt sich auch in der weiten Verbreitung des Werks durch die amerikanischen, japanischen, italienischen und spanischen Ubersetzungen wider. Auch wenn das EWNT sich zunachst an Leserinnen und Leser wendet, die Griechisch gelernt haben, so kann es doch durch die Umschrift der Artikelstichworter in lateinischen Buchstaben, durch die vielfachen Ubersetzungen innerhalb der Artikel sowie durch die Gesamtregister am Ende des Werks auch denen eine Hilfe sein, die sich am deutschen Text orientieren wollen.

An Interpretive Lexicon of New Testament Greek

Analysis of Prepositions, Adverbs, Particles, Relative Pronouns, and Conjunctions

Publisher: Zondervan
ISBN: 031051665X
Category: Religion
Page: 96
View: 5662
This Interpretive Lexicon has two primary functions aimed at facilitating the exegetical and translational task, namely as a lexicon and also as an interpretive handbook. First, this book lists the vast majority of Greek prepositions, adverbs, particles, relative pronouns, conjunctions, and other connecting words that are notorious for being some of the most difficult words to translate. For each word included, page references are given for several major lexical resources where the user can quickly go to examine the nuances and parameters of the word for translation options. This book will save considerable time for students of the Greek New Testament text. For example, for the Greek preposition en (occurs 2,750 times in the New Testament) covers four pages of small print in the Bauer-Danker lexicon (BDAG). But Interpretive Lexicon digests those pages in just a few lines, with the page numbers and section references given for A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature, 3rd Edition (BDAG, ’00) and 2nd Edition (BAGD, ’79), Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics (Daniel B. Wallace), and Prepositions and Theology in the Greek New Testament (Murray J. Harris). Thus, the translation options can be analyzed quickly. For words with a lower frequency of occurrence and fewer translation options, this book may be sufficient in itself as a lexicon. Secondly, these prepositions, conjunctions, adverbs, and connecting words in Greek, as in every language, function as explicit discourse-level markers that are essential for ascertaining the main point(s) of a passage. Therefore, this Interpretive Lexicon also evaluates the discourse function(s) of each word that is defined and catalogued, and categorizes its semantic range into defined logical relationships. This feature of the lexicon adds an interpretive element, since translation must include interpretation, at least on a linguistic level. For example, en may be translated in many ways, but those ways are categorized broadly in this book into relationships such as locative (in, among, on), means-end (with, by), grounds (because, on account of), temporal (while, at), and so on. This interpretive feature of the book is tremendously helpful for the exegetical process, allowing for the translator to closely follow the logical flow of the text with greater efficiency. This Interpretive Lexicon is thus a remarkable resource for student, pastor, and scholar alike.

The Pretribulation Rapture Theory and Dispensationalism Revisited

Category: Religion
Page: 196
View: 5537
The Pretribulation Rapture Theory and Dispensationalism Revisited reviews and critiques a confusing array of popular theories that address the return of Jesus Christ and the church’s rapture. It proposes that a clarifying approach rests in letting Scripture interpret Scripture, which yields a simpler, more natural, and consistent explanation of the pretribulation rapture and dispensationalism. Drawing upon thousands of hours of Bible study, J. Mike Byrd presents an analysis and a related proposal that avoid both unthinking conformity to popular notions and oversimplification for the sake of palatability. The Pretribulation Rapture Theory and Dispensationalism Revisited addresses methods of interpretation, defines dispensationalism and the Dispensational Principle, examines the scriptural testimony surrounding the day of the Lord and the day of God’s wrath, surveys the issues regarding imminence, and discusses the rapture, the resurrection, and Christ’s second coming. If you wonder what Scripture clearly teaches about the this world’s demise, the end of human existence, and the onset of God’s sure and certain work to establish his reign, then The Pretribulation Rapture Theory and Dispensationalism Revisited should offer you the scripturally grounded review, analysis, and explanation you need to understand the Scripture’s teachings on these ultimate issues.

The synoptic Gethsemane. A critical study

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.

The Story of Christ in the Ethics of Paul

An Analysis of the Function of the Hymnic Material in the Pauline Corpus
Author: Stephen E. Fowl

In this book Fowl examines the role played by three poetic texts, Phil. 2.6-11, Col. 1.15-20, and 1Tim. 3.16 in the arguments of their epistles. Rather than functioning as criteria of christological orthodoxy, these poetic narrations of Christ's person and work are used by Paul to support various ethical positions. For Paul and the Christians he addresses, these stories of Christ are exemplars for the life and practice of the church.

Investigating various contexts of the "I am" sayings in Jewish and Hellenistic traditions, including the immediate context of the Johannine community, Kim seeks to explore the themes and structure of the "I am" sayings of Jesus in the Fourth Gospel. In doing so, Kim demonstrates how the "I am" sayings of Jesus can be understood as Jesus' embodiment of God's presence--the Logos of God in the world--and how such a language can help transform the struggling community into a loving community for all through a new vision of the Logos.
