Unlock the significance, meaning, and nuances of words in the New Testament without having to study Hebrew or Greek! The 4-volume New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology examines and discusses the major theological terms of the Bible.
The New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology is a basic enlargement of the German Theologisches Begriffslexikon zum Neuen Testament. On its first publication in German it was recognized as a major reference work and has since become more and more widely acclaimed as an important tool for understanding the theology and message of the Bible. The Logos edition of the New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology provides a unique and accessible source of information, invaluable to ministers, teachers, and anyone interested in the study as well as the teaching of the Bible.
“When it is used of God, it does not mean God in his essential nature, but the luminous manifestation of his person, his glorious revelation of himself.” (Volume 2, Page 45)
“Like the OT, the NT understands care chiefly as the natural reaction of man to poverty, hunger and other troubles which befall him in his daily life. Oppressed by the burdens laid upon him, man imagines himself delivered to a fate before which he stands powerless. By his care man tries to protect himself as best he can from what confronts him.” (Volume 1, Page 277)
“The fundamental difference between the Gk. and the biblical use of these words has already been indicated. In the Gk. world, with its anthropocentric view of man, lowliness is looked on as shameful, to be avoided and overcome by act and thought. In the NT, with its theocentric view of man, the words are used to describe those events that bring a man into a right relationship with God and his fellow-man (cf. TDNT VIII 11 f.).” (Volume 2, Page 260)
“Words formed from the Gk. root char indicate things which produce wellbeing.” (Volume 2, Page 115)
“Hence, repentance is now no longer obedience to a law but to a person. The call to repentance becomes a call to discipleship. So repentance, faith and discipleship are different aspects of the same thing (Mk. 1:15, ‘Repent and believe’).” (Volume 1, Page 358)
Has proved its worth.
