Published posthumously, New Testament Word Studies is an excerpt from Ernest DeWitt Burton’s unfinished, life-long project to create a dictionary of terms for the English New Testament. This volume is comprised of Burton’s in-depth analysis of some of the most significant words from the New Testament. Burton explores a word’s treatment in the New Testament, as well as its usage in other writings from the same era. A succinct and practical reference book on the New Testament, Burton also provides a detailed index categorized by the books of the New Testament and the verses/passages he covers for convenient accessibility.
