Hello, I warmly second your request as Vine's is still useable and informative imho.

Vine has written some very good commentaries too (some with Hogg) and a grammar for learning NT Greek.

 

This dict. has been requested before, but the opinion was - if I remember correctly - that the work was outdated (?) and that we have another exp. dictionary in A.: Renn's. Etc.

 

I use Vine's now in my other Bible software.

 

Hans

I believe the opinion was that Vine's is unreliable and outdated, as well as being superseded by better products.

Whose opinion was that? I bet Vines outsells and is more widely used than any lexicon currently offered here except for Strongs.

I can't recall why we don't have Vine's; but it probably has to do with the availability of a reliable e-text. We do have Renn, and more recently Mounce's Complete Expository Dictionary, which was intended to be an updated Vine's. Mounce is also interlinked in our standard Mounce Greek Dictionary (included with most Key Number/Strong's texts), which makes for easy navigation for studying.

 

Thanks for the feedback.
