Reviews - What do customers think about Greek-English Dictionary of the New Testament?
Handy book, fast service May 22, 2008
This is a very hande little book, with all words in the greek NT. It has even unusual entries for aorist verbs. The delivery was quite fast, from the US to the Netherlands within one week, probably the fastest delivery ever for me (standard shipping).
A good starting point Dec 28, 2007
This dictionary is found in the back of the United Bible Societies "Greek New Testament: With English Introduction including Greek/English dictionary/flexible." But it can also be purchased separately. It is also found in the BibleWorks 7.
I own the "Greek NT" and BibleWorks. I used the version in the Greek NT quite a bit when I was first learning Greek. The value of this dictionary is that it is very basic. In most cases, you are given a one word or short phrase English equivalent for the Greek word. Some entries are more detailed, with different possible equivalent words given, and occasionally a verse reference. But that is it, simple and to the point.
But sometimes, that is all you want, to know the basic meaning of a word. And this dictionary lets you see it at a glance. In fact, on my BibleWorks program, I have this dictionary set as the lexicon that appears in the auto-info window under the actual verses. So I put my pointer over a Greek word, and the short definition form this dictionary immediately appears. And again, sometimes, that is all I need to be reminded of what a word means.
Once I started working on my Analytical-Literal Translation of the New Testament: Third Edition (ALT) I would often need more info that this. So I would then check other lexicons and theological dictionaries. But this little dictionary still provided a good starting point. So I would recommend it for that purpose.
Very Useful! Jul 6, 2007
If you're using the NA "Novum Testamentum Graece et Latine" then this is the Greek dictionary for you (along with the Bantam paperback Latin dictionary, that is).
For those who want to use UBS Greek New Testaments, be careful when ordering. Some newer versions DON'T have a dictionary included. In that case you'll need this very slender, little wonder. The readability is great and many words have additional irregular forms included.
Personally, I've got an older UBS Greek NT with dictionary but recently I've switched to the Latin and Greek NT version mentioned above and this little book is much easier to handle than having two thick books on my lap as I read. Since I use it every day, what could be easier?
Only one thing could improve this book and that's having a principal parts section for verbs. Oh well...
caveat emptor Feb 14, 2007
Other reviewers point out that this is a nice supplement to the similarly bound 'The Greek New Testament' by Aland, Aland, Karavidopoulos, Martini, and Metzger, published with a rich matching red leather cover by the Institute for New Testament Textual Research and 'Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft'. One thing you want to be aware of is that this entire dictionary appears at the end of this Greek edition of the New Testament. So, if you have this complete New Testament edition, you don't need the dictionary!
Otherwise, everything the other reviewers say about the book is true, especially the fact that it is a convenient and attractive resource.
It does the job it sets out to do. Apr 1, 2006
It's a NEW TESTAMENT Greek dictionary -- you'll need a general Greek lexicon for anything else. It's a small, very portable dictionary you can take with you with your pocket NT. It's enough to get you by when you're stuck trying to read a passage. It does this very well. Not intended for exegesis -- for that you should start with _A Greek-English Lexicon of the NT & Other Early Christian Literature_, Bauer & Danker.
