Frederick W. Danker is deservedly recognized as one of today foremost Greek lexicographers. Unique among contemporary biblical scholars, Danker has lived to see the publication of two major Greek dictionaries that he himself edited. While he was part of the editorial team that produced the second edition of A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature, he alone thoroughly revised the entire dictionary to produce the third edition, popularly known as BDAG. Projects like these have considerably advanced New Testament lexicography in the twentieth century and have laid a solid foundation for further lexicographical work in the twenty-first. Biblical Greek Language and Lexicography celebrates the life and work of Professor Danker. In character with his contribution to Greek scholarship, the essays have been chosen to assist Biblical Greek students and their teachers to develop a deeper understanding of aspects of Greek language and lexicography.
As the basis of modern translations of the Scriptures, biblical Greek and lexicography are disciplines vital to our understanding of the original Christian message. This volume, which celebrates the career of Frederick W. Danker, presents the state of the art in Greek and biblical language studies.
Amid the important topics of discussion are how one discovers the meaning of words, current tools available to students of language, and the approach being used in the latest New Testament and Septuagint Greek dictionaries. Added features of this book include appendices listing current Greek-English dictionaries and grammars and current Greek dictionary and language projects as well as indexes of biblical references, Greek and Hebrew words, and grammatical terms.
