Dictionary of New Testament Background
This volume contains detailed studies on just about any New Testament character or topic you can think of. One helpful feature is the vast amount of cultural information. By looking at outside sources a great deal of light can be shed on what we find in the Bible. Biblical and Roman historians, like Josephus, Philo and Tacitus, can add to a deeper understanding of the New Testament texts.
For example, you may be preparing a sermon or lesson on the crucifixion of Jesus. This dictionary’s article on Pontius Pilate contains far more information than what we find in the Gospels. By accessing ancient Roman records, you’ll learn everything that has ever been unearthed regarding this ruler. Furthermore, you’ll learn all about the authority and duties of provincial Roman governors, plus detailed facts about the Roman legal system.
Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels
This dictionary contains hundreds of articles on the ministry of Jesus and every person and event that is described in the Gospels. Moreover, it takes on the many questions that arise from the Gospels themselves.
Let’s say your study demands a more thorough understanding of baptism. You’ll find an outstanding article on the role baptism plays in world religions and the theological underpinnings that make Christian baptism unique. Furthermore, the article explains how the Old Testament Judaic practice of baptism and baptism in the Qumran community informed the baptisms of John and Jesus.
Dictionary of Paul and His Letters
This volume provides extensive material on Paul and his epistles. You’ll come away with an intimate understanding of Paul, his personality, his evangelistic zeal, and what effect his remarkable conversion had on his writings and his missionary journeys.
If you are teaching on his letters to the Corinthians, you’ll find an enlightening article on Corinth. You’ll come to know what the city and her customs were like during Paul’s time (very different from ours today). You’ll understand why Paul was so intent on straightening out their false doctrine, and you’ll enjoy an interesting discussion that contrasts the themes of Paul’s first and second letters to the Corinthian church.
Dictionary of the Later New Testament & Its Developments
This dictionary focuses on the remaining New Testament books – those that are not included in the Gospels or Paul’s epistles. This volume will help you to better understand these important books and their themes.
For instance, maybe you would like to focus on a topic like Heaven. First, you’ll get a thorough review of canonical material. You’ll see how the topic of Heaven is treated in the books of Acts, Hebrews, the Epistles and Revelation. Then, you’ll explore what the early church fathers said about Heaven in the postapostolic literature writings.
Dictionary of Biblical Imagery
This volume includes the best of the rest. You’ll find detailed articles on Bible images, metaphors, character types, plot motifs, type scenes, rhetorical devices, literary genres and the individual books of the Bible.
I was amazed by what I learned about horns. The Bible is full of horns. Horns for sacrifice on the altar, horns used as musical instruments, horns as an ancient symbol of power, and the symbolism of cutting off horns. I was also surprised by what I learned about milk and how often it is referred to in the Bible. It was a food source, played a role in ancient hospitality, had specific laws regarding its use and, most importantly, was used as a biblical metaphor.
