Mounce's Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words

ISBN: 9780310591504



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.

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.

    How do I search by Strong's numbers for Hebrew?

    “Mounce’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words” is well worth the price. It incorporates two numbering systems; the Goodrick-Kohlenberger numbering system and the Strong’s numbering system that are used throughout its three dictionaries, including an Expository Dictionary, a Hebrew-English Dictionary, and a Greek-English Dictionary. Neither numbering system is linked to the Interlinear Bibles in Logos. The Goodrick-Kohlenberger (G-K) numbering system is a newer system with up to date definitions that use the G-K number in the primary position, but it also cross-references the older Strong's number. For instance, "agapaō" is number 26 in the G-K system and number 25 in Strong's. When the G-K system does not have a Strong's equivalent, to asterisks (**) are used to indicate the exception. In addition, “Mounce’s Complete Expository Dictionary" has a Scripture Index, and other useful information, like "How to Do Word Studies".
