The long-awaited third edition of the Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament edited by Frederick William Danker, needs no introduction as it is the standard lexicon for Greek New Testament studies.

Described as an “invaluable reference work” (Classical Philology) and “a tool indispensable for the study of early Christian literature” (Religious Studies Review) in its previous edition, this new updated American edition of Walter Bauer’s Wörterbuch zu den Schriften des Neuen Testaments builds on its predecessor’s staggering deposit of extraordinary erudition relating to Greek literature from all periods. Including entries for many more words, the new edition also lists more than 25,000 additional references to classical, intertestamental, Early Christian, and modern literature.

In this edition, Frederick W. Danker’s broad knowledge of Greco-Roman literature, as well as papyri and epigraphs, provides a more panoramic view of the world of Jesus and the New Testament. Danker has also introduced a more consistent mode of reference citation, and has provided a composite list of abbreviations to facilitate easy access to this wealth of information.

Perhaps the single most important lexical innovation of Danker’s edition is its inclusion of extended definitions for Greek terms. For instance, a key meaning of “episkopos” was defined in the second American edition as overseer; Danker defines it as “one who has the responsibility of safeguarding or seeing to it that something is done in the correct way, guardian.” Such extended definitions give a fuller sense of the word in question, which will help avoid both anachronisms and confusion among users of the lexicon who may not be native speakers of English.

Danker’s edition of Bauer’s Wörterbuch will be an indispensable guide for Biblical and classical scholars, ministers, seminarians, and translators.

  1. Lawrence

    This is the standard lexicon for New Testament Greek. It includes the lexical entry, glosses, and usage notes to explain the sense of the gloss, together with many sample Greek/English translations. Note that it only has entries for lexical roots – for example, it has an entry for χάρις but not χάριτι. This can be a problem with a paper edition, but with Accordance it’s not an issue. You can mouse-over the word in the Greek text to get the lexical root.

  2. (verified owner) Benjamin Noonan

    This is the go-to lexicon for New Testament Greek. This Accordance edition is very user-friendly and much easier and quicker to use than the print edition. Like all lexicons in Accordance, you can search not only for a head-entry lexeme but also English glosses for the lexeme, Scripture references using the lexeme, etc. Anyone reading or studying New Testament Greek should own this resource.
