For these reasons, I do not expect that the Dictionary of the Later New Testament will appeal as widely as the previous volumes. Beasley-Murray, I. Every theological college library ought to have one, and every teacher of the New Testament ought to consult it for individual articles to recommend their students read in the library. Beginning with father, and continuing through the alphabet, the TDOT volumes present in-depth discussions of the key Hebrew and Aramaic words in the Old Testament.

    But this respectability should not be the sine qua non of our scholarly endeavors. It is a lot more difficult to imagine some hypothetical readers thinking to themselves 'I wonder what the authors of James, Hebrews, etc. This initiative informatively sets the later New Testament writings in the ongoing historical trajectory of reflection on the gospel and apostolic teaching. An interesting closing sidelight is that one gets a glimpse into how long this project has been in the works when one comes across an article by Robert Guelich on the "Destruction of Jerusalem," updated by editor Evans, and recalls that Guelich passed away in the early s! And overall, the choices of material do remain outstanding.

    The lexical work includes detailed surveys of a word s occurrences, not only in biblical material but also in other ancient Near Eastern writings. Commitment to a determinative canon embracing the twenty-seven books in our New Testament should make room for 1 a frank admission that books often thought to be peripheral to the alleged "center" are still held to be normative, for as Dr. Great for sermons and information The book brings practicality and relate-ability By Amazon Customer on Jun 21, Great breakdown of not only the arguments through the centuries but also the culture in which the writings took place.
