For over a century, Thayer's has been lauded as one of the best New Testament lexicons available. Both accessible and thorough, it is a work suited for the student of New Testament Greek. Thayer's provides dictionary definitions for each word and relates each word to its New Testament usage and categorizes its nuances of meaning. Its exhaustive coverage of New Testament Greek words, as well as its extensive quotation of extra-biblical word usage and the wealth of background sources consulted and quoted, render Thayer's an invaluable resource.
Ceslas Spicq, O.P., was an internationally recognized biblical scholar known especially for his commentaries: Saint Paul: Les Epîtres Pastorales, Les Epîtres de Saint Pierre, and L'Epître aux Hébreux, and for his widely acclaimed Agape in the New Testament.
In the upper portion of each article entry the Greek lexical form of the word or word group appears, and the lower portion contains:
- Fully transliterated English form
- Brief definition
- Terms in the text itself are transliterated for the nonspecialist, while scholars can quickly reference the original language in the article entry.
- Scholars especially will appreciate the extensive footnotes, which review a term's use in the papyri, in the Septuagint, and in classical and Hellenistic writings and then assess the value of this material for understanding the NT. Parallels in Jewish writings, including the Pseudepigrapha, Apocrypha, and Qumran, are also included.
- Spicq supplies vital bibliography from a wide range of resources. And in this edition, any references to French, German, or other foreign language works that have been translated into English are given in their English form.
- In the resource notes, each term is conveniently keyed to Strong's Concordance numbering and cross-referenced to major lexical resources, such as Louw and Nida's Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament Based on Semantic Domains or the Theological Dictionary of the New Testament.
Of the original French edition the voices were unanimous:
"The word studies offered to us here, a gold mine of information in convenient form, would appear to be the fruit of a lifetime of study on the part of this distinguished scholar." Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
". . . this work merits a place on the NT scholar's shelf. Beyond that, it affords precious amplification of the meager individual material at times given in the comprehensive lexicons and a correction of some of it." Catholic Biblical Quarterly
"Classical authors, inscriptions, and papyri are probed for the light they can shed . . . An important resource [now] available to English-speaking people."

dixmaestro2 Stars Out Of 5description does not include pertinent informationMarch 10, 2013dixmaestroQuality: 2Value: 4Meets Expectations: 1As a first year seminary student, I purchased this set specifically to use as reference for a particular exegetical paper. Nowhere in the description did it indicate that this is not a comprehensive lexicon and the author picks and chooses only certain words. NOT ONE word that from the passage I am using shows up in this set. Don't know if it is quality work or not - couldn't use it. Could have saved the money and got something that is more useful.

More!September 17, 2012T MoellerRound Rock, TXAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a superior value for a rare help in understanding the background and usage of select (not all) greek words that have theological significance in the reading of the NT. Surprisingly, baptize/baptitzo is not in this work... oh, well.
Love the quality and value. Thank you for making this wonderful reference available to us all.

I have been studying romans and certain important terms are nowhere to be found. Very unfortunate that a term like "condemnation" (Rom. 8:1) is not in a dictionary.
