A Book-by-Book Guide to Biblical Hebrew Vocabulary

  • Authors: William R. Osborne and Russell L. Meek
  • Publisher: Hendrickson
  • Publication Date: 2019
  • Pages: 200

A Book-by-Book Guide to Biblical Hebrew Vocabulary is intended to help students, pastors, and professors who wish to read a particular book of the Hebrew Bible in its original language to master the vocabulary that occurs most frequently in the book in question. In contrast to typical Hebrew and Greek vocabulary guides, which present vocabulary words based on their frequency in the Hebrew Bible or New Testament as a whole, this book presents vocabulary words based on their frequency in individual biblical books of the Hebrew Bible, thus allowing readers to understand and engage with the text of a particular book easily and quickly.

Meek and Osborne have produced an intelligently conceived and well-executed volume of vocabulary lists for the mastery of Biblical Hebrew. This will enable the second-year student to strategically memorize new vocabulary. For those who have completed elementary Hebrew, this tool is markedly superior to competing vocabulary textbooks.

A Book-by-Book Guide to New Testament Greek Vocabulary

  • Author: Christopher J. Fresch
  • Publisher: Hendrickson
  • Publication Date: 2019
  • Pages: 434

A Book-by-Book Guide to New Testament Greek Vocabulary is intended to help students, pastors, and professors who wish to read a particular book of the Bible in its original language to master the vocabulary that occurs most frequently in the book in question. In contrast to typical Hebrew and Greek vocabulary guides, which present vocabulary words based on their frequency in the Hebrew Bible or New Testament as a whole, this book presents vocabulary words based on their frequency in individual New Testament books, thus allowing readers to understand and engage with the text of a particular book easily and quickly.

The book also includes an appendix listing difficult principal parts for selected verbs that occur in the vocabulary lists and providing other advanced notes for additional words in the lists.

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time, the adage goes. So it is with reading the Greek New Testament. Chris Fresch has produced a tool for just such a purpose—one that is both sensitive to students’ abilities and accurate regarding glosses. Both are necessary to give students the confidence they need to read the Greek New Testament, one bite at a time.

A Book-by-Book Guide to Septuagint Vocabulary

  • Author: Gregory R. Lanier and William A. Ross
  • Publisher: Hendrickson
  • Publication Date: 2019
  • Pages: 175

This book-by-book vocabulary guide provides an unparalleled resource for anyone interested in more effective reading and study of the Old Testament in Greek, commonly called the Septuagint. Aside from two full-scale specialist lexicons for the Septuagint, no other printed resource exists that provides concise and strategic guidance to the language of this important ancient corpus. With word lists organized by frequency of appearance in a given book or section of the Septuagint, this guide allows users to focus their study efforts and thus more efficiently improve their breadth of knowledge of Koine vocabulary. Furthermore, the vocabulary incorporated into the lists in this guide integrates lower-frequency New Testament vocabulary in a manner that enables the user to easily include or exclude such words from their study. Other key features of this vocabulary guide include carefully crafted lists that allow users to refresh higher-frequency New Testament vocabulary, to strategically study higher-frequency vocabulary that appears across the Septuagint corpus, and to familiarize themselves with the most common proper nouns in the Septuagint. Moreover, each chapter in this guide has been statistically tailored to provide the word lists necessary to familiarize the user with 90 percent of the full range of vocabulary in each book or section of the Septuagint.

I am delighted to see an increasing interest in Septuagint studies, as well as the increase of relevant reference books. The broader the student’s understanding of Greek, the deeper their handling will be of both the LXX and Greek New Testament texts. This vocabulary guide is an essential part in gaining a familiarity with the Greek, and in turn will make reading the LXX more satisfying. The authors wisely divide the Greek words into three categories: those that are common in the New Testament, common words in the LXX (including names), and then the words specific to books of the LXX. By starting with a core vocabulary, the task of learning the vocabulary of specific books becomes less daunting. I highly recommend this guide, both for those engaged in Septuagint studies and for students who want to expand their understanding of the language of the Greek New Testament.
