Abbot-Smith’s A Manual Lexicon of the New Testament was written to offer an update to older lexicons—those written before the discovery of manuscripts demonstrating that the New Testament was written in koine Greek, rather than a Hebrew variant of classical Greek. It was also written to be a quick reference guide for students of the New Testament to use while reading their Greek text. It adopts the textual standard of Moulton and Geden’s Concordance to the Greek New Testament by following the Westcott & Hort Greek text.
