This grammar sets the Greek of the New Testament in the context of Hellenistic Greek and compares and contrasts it with the classical norms. It relates the New Testament language to its Semitic background, to Greek dialects, and to Latin. Generous bibliographies, subsections discussing difficult or disputed points, copious citations of primary texts. The material is very condensed, and the Greek rarely translated. This is an advanced grammar requiring a good background in Greek.
