The New International Dictionary of Theology and Exegesis: Old and New Testament (10 vols.) contains thousands of articles, written by hundreds of scholars from over 100 academic institutions! This massive reference work contains articles on the theology of each individual book of the Bible, as well as discussions of biblical concepts, people, places, events, and literary pieces. The New International Dictionary of Theology and Exegesis: Old and New Testament is intended for serious biblical and exegetical study by men and women of all walks of life—both academics and pastors, students and laypersons.
Volumes one through five contain a lexicon of the Old Testament. All words found in the text are ordered by Hebrew alphabetization for easy reference, and coupled with a Goodrich/Kohlenberger cross-referencing number to be used in conjunction with Strong’s numbering system. The relationship of each word in different contexts and languages is also explained, including alternative words, and the particulars of their semantic domain. All this information is, of course, complete with bibliography. Volume five contains a series of indexes: a Hebrew index, subject index, and an index of semantic fields. This collection is an unparalleled accomplishment in the field of biblical hermeneutics.
The latter five volumes examine and discuss the major theological terms of the Bible. They allow you to unlock the significance, meaning, and nuances of words in the New Testament without having to study Hebrew or Greek! These five volumes are a basic enlargement of the German Theologisches Begriffslexikon zum Neuen Testament. On its first publication in German it was recognized as a major reference work and has since become more and more widely acclaimed as an important tool for understanding the theology and message of the Bible.
Please note that these ten volumes will appears as two resources in your digital library.
