Publisher's Description

A translation of the 3-volume work, "Notes de lexicographie neo-testamentaire," by the premier biblical exegete Ceslas Spicq, the "Theological Lexicon of the New Testament" will surely take its place alongside other standard language tools. One plus to this work is that it is self-consciously theological. Spicq's quest is not for morphology, orthography, or even grammar or syntax; rather, he wants to uncover the religious meaning of the language used in the New Testament. To accomplish his task, Spicq mines the vast resources of epigraphical texts, papyri, classical writings, the Greek Old Testament, Hellenistic authors, and innumerable sources to inform his study of New Testament Koine. Not merely following in the footsteps of other such works, more than half of the words in TLNT do not receive significant treatment in TDNT, and his impressive familiarity with a variety of resources" from funerary inscriptions to papyri fragments" deems his work extraordinary.

- 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 widerange 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."

Reviews

"Classical authors, inscriptions, and papyri are probed for the light they can shed . . . An important resource [now] available to English-speaking people." —Frederick Danker

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

    As 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.

    Provides more in-depth understanding of words, but more for the scholar. Find it useful in studies.

    This 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.

    so far all of the words I have looked up in this dictionary are not there. 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.
