Biblical words and phrases often appear deceptively simple, yet conceal layers of history, meaning, and cultural significance. This enlightening resource takes you to the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek roots of many key terms: "Justics", "Son of Man," "Resurrection," "Kingdom of God," and explains the profound theological and ethical concepts behind the words they embody.
Key theological and ethical words of the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible are explained by an outstanding group of biblical scholars in this wordbook. The articles deal with groups of related words, drawing the reader into the meanings of the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek words. The book will be useful for lay readers of the Bible, university and seminary students, and pastors, adding depth to their understandings of hundreds of important terms, such as "justice," "Son of Man," "resurrection," and "kingdom of God."
