Designed as a tool for those students and laypeople without a knowledge of New Testament Greek, Bullinger's A Critical Lexicon and Concordance to the English and Greek New Testament goes beyond resources such as Strong's Dictionary by not only providing a concordance and translation glosses, but also a complete lexicon with definitions, all in an accessible manner.

Bullinger's A Critical Lexicon and Concordance in many ways is a comparable tool Strong's Dictionary, but also surpasses it. The volume's organization by English head words makes it particularly accessible to the English-only student, while also providing the individual Greek words that those English words translate. Combined with his judicious knowledge of the Scripture and the Greek language, these features make Bullinger's work an important and practical resource for those who lack a knowledge of New Testament Greek.

Rather than being organized by Greek, Bullinger determined to make the King James Version the central organizing principle. Even more importantly, he recognized that there is no way of telling exactly which manuscripts the KJV translators used along with the Textus Receptus. Therefore, Bullinger helpfully provides citations of other manuscripts and critical editions, including the texts of Griesbach, Lachmann, Tischendorf, Tregelles, Alford, and the manuscript Codex Sinaiticus. These additional references take the reader well beyond the features of Strong's by allowing them to judge and decide for themselves what is the true text and what is not. Moreover, where Strong's definitions are limited only to the translation glosses of the KJV, Bullinger only organized his lexicon around the words of the KJV. The definitions and glosses form a complete Greek lexicon with the accompanying contextual and grammatical information one would expect in a full lexicon organized according to the Greek. All in all, Bullinger's A Critical Lexicon and Concordance functions as a helpful tool to compare with other dictionaries, such as Vine's Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words.

  • Easy access to both the English of the KJV as well as the original Greek
  • References to multiple critical editions and manuscripts
  • Several appendices on New Testament Greek grammar
Bullinger . . . published A Critical Lexicon and Concordance to the English and Greek New Testament. . . . The book serves as a concordance as well as a lexicon. In the index is the list of Greek words in the New Testament with a list of each of the words used to translate it, with the number of times they occur. . . . The new edition of Bullinger is very handy indeed.

The Christadelphian

[A Critical Lexicon and Concordance] is intended as a help to those unacquainted with Greek, and is really a valuable work.

The Comprehensive Concordance to the Holy Scriptures

The design of this work is to give every English word in alphabetical order, and under each the Greek word or words so translated, with a list of the passages in which the English word occurs, showing by a reference figure which is the Greek word used m each particular passage. Thus, at one view, the Greek word with its literal and derivative meanings may be found for every word in the English New Testament.

Ethelbert William Bullinger (1837–1913) was an Anglican biblical scholar, theologian, and clergyman. He served in parish ministry throughout his life and was clerical secretary of the Trinitarian Bible Society from 1867 until his death in 1913. He is most recognizable for his role in developing ultradispensational theology, which is sometimes referred to as “Bullingerism.” His best-known works are the Companion Bible, A Critical Lexicon and Concordance to the English and Greek New Testament, and Figures of Speech Used in the Bible.

    I have used the Critical Lexicon for over forty years. It has a simple format that blends a concordance and a lexicon together on the same page. This works well when you have several Greek words but only one English word.

    Some books Bullinger more faithful to scripture, the Greek text is the Textus Receptus

    I have used the print version of his "A Critical Lexicon and Concordance" for 40 years. I wore out one and needed to buy another. Never needed a Strongs because of this great work. E.W. Bullinger was a great scholar and his published works continue in printed form to this day. I own several of his other books, and will buy even more. The world was greatly blessed by his life.
