Description: This handy dictionary is a revision and expansion of Alexander Souter's A Pocket Lexicon of the Greek New Testament. Long a favorite among biblical scholars, Souter's Pocket Lexicon offers concise yet clear English definitions and helpful grammatical information on every Greek word used in the New Testament.
Compact Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament includes full and insightful definitions, especially of frequent "little words" (articles, prepositions, etc.), as well as many biblical references. Word definitions are placed first and set off in italics for quick reference. It was written after recent papyrus discoveries, which is important for the most up-to-date definitions.
Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Literature, Methods, Linguistics, Greek
