Details


Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament based on Semantic Domains:  This is a two-volume work that arranges the NT lexical material into 93 semantic domains (such as Plants, Animals, Foods and Condiments, Learn, Agriculture, Value, Time, Contests and Play, etc.). This enables the user to see words that are different lexically, but are similar semantically, much more easily.  The advantage of this approach is that it gives an indication of the relationships which exist between words which are similar in meaning.

Not all Greek lexicons are the same. There are concise lexicons, those keyed to Strong’s numbers, Lexicons specific to the LXX or classical Greek (LEH or LS), exhaustive lexicons (BDAG), theological lexicons (NIDNT) and then there is the Louw Nida Semantic Domain Lexicon.

The Louw Nida Semantic Domain Lexicon is unique in its approach and design. It provides the user information on how Greek words can be used in different semantic domains within the context of the text. A criticism of the Amplified Bible as well as how some perform Bible word studies, is that the reader is given the impression that they can select between the many meanings of a word and apply the one they want in translating the text. However, a more educated and thorough analysis requires selecting between the various meanings and applying the correct meaning within the context of the text. This is where the Louw Nida Lexicon shines.

This lexicon is design to provide not only all the available semantic domains and uses of a word, but assists in selecting the correct meaning by providing Biblical references. When you amplify a Greek word to this lexicon in Accordance, the software will open the lexicon to the correct entry and highlight the biblical verse amplified from if it is referenced in the lexicon. This assists in zeroing in on the meaning of the Greek word. A good example is the Greek word sarx (flesh). According to Louw Nida, there are 13 different semantic uses of this word. If you are amplifying from Gal 5:19, the lexicon will provide you a suggested semantic domain. This is a very useful lexicon made more powerful in Accordance.

I highly recommend this lexicon as an addition to your library to assist you in digging for the meaning of the text within the context of the text.
