“The vb. στρατεύω is used also of the spiritual struggles of the Christian. James points out to his readers that the quarrels taking place in their community arise from the desires that ‘battle’ within them (Jas 4:1). Peter urges Christians to resist the sinful desires that ‘wage war’ against their souls (1 Pet 2:11). This conflict in the life of the believer is dealt with most fully by Paul in Rom 7:7–25, and near the end of his discussion he states: ‘For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind [ἀντιστρατευόμενον τῷ νόμῳ τοῦ νοός μου] and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me’ (7:22–23). See νοῦς G3808 NT 1 (a).” (Volume 4, Page 385)

“In the Pauline writings the word group evidently denotes any kind of illegitimate sexual activity (except for πόρνη, which means specifically ‘prostitute’).” (Volume 4, Page 115)

“The rhetorical question of Jer 23:24, ‘Do not I fill [πληρῶ] heaven and earth?’ is meant to emphasize that no one can hide from God.” (Volume 3, Page 786)

“The vast majority of usages are metaph., with the heart viewed as the very center of human life.” (Volume 2, Page 624)

“The word group conveys the idea of thinking differently, and if the change of mind involves the recognition that the previous opinion was false or bad, we get the sense of feeling remorse or regret. In ancient Gk. culture, however, the thought of a radical change in a person’s life as a whole does not seem to play an important role. Thus the Christian concept of conversion is not derived from Gk. thought, and its origin must be sought elsewhere.” (Volume 3, Page 290)

. . . This New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology and Exegesis brings the tools that pastors need all together in one set! What the brilliant Moises Silva and team have put together is a exegetical tour-de force. It will be my go-to workhorse for years to come. I can’t imagine the amount of time I’m going to save now that these resources are all in one place!

    Worth every penny. Each article is just the right length and amount of expositional research. And it is perfect for Logos's features like highlighting active lemmas or verses, etc. I am very thankful for this resource!

    This is a must-have in the student and pastor library. It worths every penny. I'm not sure if it includes all Greek words in the NT, but it is a perfect complement to BDAG.
