The Lexham High Definition New Testament: ESV Edition

Details

The New Testament writers used a variety of literary and grammatical devices to help guide the reader. Some of these devices were intended to attract attention to important information, while others served to push less-important information into the background. Some were used simply to grab your attention, alerting you that something important or surprising was about to happen. The ability to identify what these devices are and where they occur in the text will be an indispensible help for your Bible study. Until only recently these tools have been accessible only to those who invested many years of study into Greek language and literature, rhetoric and linguistics.

The Lexham High Definition New Testament has finally leveled the field for those who really want to study Scripture but do not have the years to invest in the study and analysis of Greek. The Lexham High Definition New Testament, published through Logos Bible Software, pulls together the most useful devices into one place. The entire Greek New Testament is analyzed, and this analysis of the Greek is displayed right on the English text of the ESV.

The Lexham High Definition New Testament completes all of the analysis for you, displaying where the devices occur right in the Bible text, instead of in a separate note or commentary. This resource also includes a basic outline of the entire New Testament based on the Greek, making flow of difficult passages much easier to understand.

For the very first time, insights that were only accessible to only the most advanced students of Greek literature are now available in simple, easy-to-understand language. There is no other resource like the Lexham High Definition New Testament. It uses an innovative graphic display to map this information onto the text, keeping you focused in the biblical text and taking your Bible study to new depths of insight.
