Publisher's Description

The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament (EGGNT) closes the gap between the Greek text and the available lexical and grammatical tools, providing all the necessary information for greater understanding of the text. The series makes interpreting any given New Testament book easier, especially for those who are hard pressed for time but want to preach or teach with accuracy and authority.

Each volume begins with a brief introduction to the particular New Testament book, a basic outline, and a list of recommended commentaries. The body is devoted to paragraph-by-paragraph exegesis of the Greek text and includes homiletical helps and suggestions for further study. A comprehensive exegetical outline of the New Testament book completes each EGGNT volume.

Editorial Reviews

 
"In line with the vision of Murray J. Harris, who originated the EGGNT series, Alan Thompson's fine volume on Luke succinctly provides judicious explanation of the Greek syntax, structure, grammatical options, the flow of the argument, and more. This volume will be a gold mine for students and pastors alike who are keeping up their Greek while studying this Gospel closely. Highly recommended."
 
D. A. Carson, research professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and president, The Gospel Coalition

 
"Luke is the longest gospel in Scripture and getting good grammatical help for his inspired work can be hard. That is no longer the case. Luke’s Gospel in the Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament (EGGNT) series by Alan Thompson provides a series of careful observations about the Greek that can help you negotiate the terrain. A wonderful tool."
 
Darrell L. Bock, executive director of cultural engagement, Howard G. Hendricks Center for Christian Leadership and Cultural Engagement and senior research professor of New Testament studies, Dallas Theological Seminary 


"This is the book on Luke that teachers of God’s Word have been waiting for. No longer is it necessary to wade through commentaries, specialist grammar books, and manuscript discussions to find syntactical and other exegetical details. It is all here, conveniently and immediately available for busy pastors, along with homiletical suggestions at the end of each section. I look forward to the publication of other texts in this series. Congratulations to Alan Thompson for his diligence, scholarship and patience in producing this very helpful resource."
 
Paul Barnett, retired Bishop of North Sydney; honorary associate in ancient history, Macquarie University, Sydney; teaching fellow, Regent College, Vancouver; and emeritus lecturer, Moore Theological College, Sydney
 
  
"Exegesis of biblical texts must ultimately be rooted in the original languages. But often the phrasing and syntax, along with the content itself, can be perplexing. Alan Thompson has provided a wealth of helpful material for those wanting to think carefully about the Greek text of Luke. One part grammatical guide, one part commentary, this is a valuable resource for anyone—and I hope there are many—striving to understand, teach, or preach the Gospel of Luke based on the Greek text."
 
Brandon D. Crowe, associate professor of New Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    Whenever you're ready to do a study of the Greek text of Luke, this is the book you want. More appropriate for those with familiarity with the Greek language..

    This book is like the rest of the volumes in the series: with an introduction, a discussion of passages section by section with lexical and grammatical insights, further study recommendations, homiletical suggestions, parenthetical references, exegetical outline, abbreviations, grammar index and scripture index. It is as in all the volumes for those who had the privilege of studying Greek beyond the basic to be beneficial.

    It is not like the volumes on epistles for this does not have a structural analysis and a phrase by phrase discussion of each paragraph. It is more like the Gospel of John volume wherein select words and phrases were discussed. This is understandable for Lukes gospel is several times longer than any of the epistles. The volume on Ephesians has about 229 pages and Luke has 386 pages (both from introduction to outline). Not even twice the length so it is not unexpected that it will not deal with each word or phrase. It is a little longer than John that has about 349 pages (introduction to outline). There is also no further study recommendation in each section like John. But unlike John, it has no homiletical suggestions in each section.

    Just like the rest of the previous volumes, a must for an exegete and expositor of Gods Word. It deals with the details. It is rich with grammatical and lexical insights (almost six pages of grammar index that includes Greek words). When there is more than one possible exegetical meaning, he lists them and marks with an asterisk his preferred option (not all the time).

    The author takes Luke as the author and that it was written from the mid 50s to early 60s. The intended audience is not only the patron but also may include both Jewish and Gentile Christians with those familiar with the language and promises of the Old Testament as the primary target audience. There is more than one purpose, evangelistic, didactic and to provide assurance to the main audience intended.

    He has provided headings that are major themes of each section rather than general headings to help expositors. His homiletical suggestions are really homiletical (for the most part) and not exegetical which is good and helpful.

    Again a must have in studying Luke for its richness and conciseness in Greek insights.

    Just a couple of comments for suggested changes (does not devalue the usefulness of this volume):

    The Series Introduction on p.xxix reflects the volumes on epistles but not for Luke (nor for John) for not each phrase here was discussed. It needs to be edited to reflect the volumes on the Gospels.

    The table of contents outline is exactly the same as the exegetical outline. Maybe take out the outline and use the pages to add some more exegetical discussions.

    Some possible mistakes /changes to make in the Homiletical Suggestions section include: p.71 pt. 2 3:23-37 should be 3:23-38; p.88 pt.3 5:14-15 should be 5:14-16; p.162, pt.1 has 9:37-43 and pt.2 has 9:43-45 (pt.1 9:37-43a & pt.2 9:43b-45); p.167 has 9:51-56, 57-58, why not 9:51-58 instead; p.266 pt.1 has till 3a but pt.2 has v.3 and pt.3 has vv.3-4, should be pt.2 has 3b and pt.3 has 3c-4; p.285 has 8:15-17 in the heading but the outline only has till v.16; p.328 pt,2 should be 20:46b?

    Another possible mistake is pt.5 on p.305, why is the reference 19:28-40, 41-44 (same as in the Table of Content on p. xxv) when the paragraph below it explains how the passage was divided? Why not just 19:28-44?

    I received this book for free to provide an honest and fair review.
