InI, II, III John: A Handbook on the Greek Text, Martin Culy provides a basic lexical, analytical, and syntactical analysis of the Greek text of 1, 2, and 3 John—information often presumed by technical commentaries and omitted by popular ones. But more than just an analytic key, I, II, III John reflects the latest advances in scholarship on Greek grammar and linguistics. The volume also contains recommendations for further reading and an up-to-date bibliography.
This volume is perfect for students, pastors, scholars, or laity seeking a deeper understanding of the Greek biblical text. What’s more, with Logos, every word is essentially a link! Scripture references are linked directly to the Bibles in your library—both the original language texts and English translations. Double-clicking any word automatically opens your lexicons to the relevant entry, making words instantly accessible. With Logos, you can quickly move from the table of contents to your desired content and search entire volumes and collections by topic, title, or Scripture reference.
This handbook continues the admirable pattern of applied scholarship displayed in the Acts volume by providing real help for the student, pastor or scholar who wants to make sense of the Greek text of the Johannine epistles. The author’s linguistic training as evidenced in his approach to semantics, syntax, and structural features leads to a volume providing information that is simply unavailable in the standard ‘commentaries.’ Readers will then be better prepared to use those commentaries and to make wise exegetical choices. This volume is miles beyond any ‘analytical lexicon’ that you may have on your shelf. I heartily recommend this volume and anticipate any future ‘handbooks’ that are developed along this model.
