For years, Vine’s Expository Dictionary has been the standard word study tool for pastors and laypeople, selling millions of copies. But sixty-plus years of scholarship has shed extensive new light on the use of biblical Greek and Hebrew, creating the need for a new, more accurate, more thorough dictionary of Bible words. William Mounce, whose Greek grammar has been used by more than 100,000 college and seminary students, is the editor of this new dictionary, which will become the layperson’s gold standard for biblical word studies.
Mounce's Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words is ideal for readers with limited or no knowledge of Greek or Hebrew who want greater insight into the meanings of biblical words to enhance Bible study. It is also the perfect reference guide for busy pastors needing to quickly get at the heart of a word’s meaning without wading through more technical studies.
- The most accurate, in-depth definitions based on the best of modern evangelical scholarship
- Both Greek and Hebrew words are found under each English entry
- Employs Strong’s numbering system
- Endorsed by leading scholars
Praise for the Print Edition
Far more complete, decades more contemporary, vastly superior in content…
—John Kohlenberger III
At last! A word study book which I can unhesitatingly recommend to those who are not proficient in the original languages. I plan to purchase several copies for my colleagues.
Anagke is the Greek word for ‘that which is necessary.’ It is comprehensively defined by this entire work, which is an indispensable aid for anyone serious about understanding or teaching the words of the Word.
For all of us who believe in the power of ‘the text,’ this resource will prove to be indispensable. A big thanks to Bill Mounce for helping us dig a little deeper
