This dictionary is designed for use with UBS4 and NA27/28. Greek words are listed alphabetically, with meanings of the variants listed according to their New Testament usage.
The most important new features of the revised dictionary:
Each definition of each word has been carefully reviewed and, where deemed necessary, revised.
A system of cross-referencing between related Greek words has been introduced.
As a didactic, mnemonic, and phonetic device, compound words are divided by small upright lines.
The maps of the UBS Greek New Testament are included.
A sampling of some Greek NT words that share similar meanings is included as an appendix to the dictionary.
