Prepositions are important in the exegesis of the Greek New Testament, but they are at the same time very slippery words because they can have so many nuances. While Prepositions and Theology in the Greek New Testament rejects the idea of a 'theology of the prepositions,' it is a study of the numerous places in the Greek New Testament where prepositions contribute to the theological meaning of the text.
Offered in the hope that it might encourage close study of the Greek text of the New Testament, its many features include the following:
Coverage of all 17 'proper' and 42 'improper' prepositions
Explores both literary and broader theological contexts
Greek font---not transliteration---used throughout
Comprehensive indexes to hundreds of verses, subjects, and Greek words
Discussion of key repeated phrases that use a particular preposition
