The New International Dictionary of Old Testament Greek & Exegesis

“Making the Scriptures plain is the aim of every biblical interpreter, but the Old Testament baffles many. The NIDOTTE is a major key to sound understanding of the Old Testament, its ideas that continue into the New, and its relevance for life today. Extensive cross-references and indexing direct the inquire to every aspect of the word or theme, and the entries have up-to-date bibliographies for further study. Sample articles carefully draw meaning from the text, not read modern ideas into it, while interacting with influential and current theories. Introductory essays helpfully survey basic methods of approach to the Old Testament as a whole, guiding the user through them. When dictionaries and encyclopedias are multiplying, NIDOTTE looks set to become the standard work in this field for all who respect the Bible.” – A.R. Millard, MA, MPhil, FSA, Rankin Professor of Hebrew and Ancient Semitic Languages, The University of Liverpool

The New International Dictionary of Old Testament Greek & Exegesis is a highly-praised, massive work that provides extensive research and explanation of each word in the Old Testament. Intended for serious exegetical study of the Old Testament by academics, pastors, and students of God’s Word, the exhaustive research put into each of the five volumes makes this immersive work key to a sound understanding of the Bible.

It includes 5 volumes:
  • Volume 1 contains a Guide to Old Testament Theology and Exegesis in which ten essays have been compiled to thoroughly explain proper hermeneutics and interpretation, as well as guidelines for using this source material.
  • Volumes 1 through 4 contain the Lexicon of the Old Testament, all words found in the text ordered by Hebrew alphabetization for easy reference, and coupled with a Goodrick/Kohlenberger cross-referencing number to be used in conjunction with Strong’s numbering system. The relationship of each word in different contexts and languages is also explained, including alternative words, and the particulars of their semantic domain. All this information is, of course, complete with bibliography.
  • Volume 4 also begins the Topical Dictionary. This includes articles on the theology of each Old Testament book individually, as well as discussion of biblical concepts, people, places, events, and literary pieces, all information that is cross-referenced to the preceding Hebraic Lexicon.
  • Volume 5 contains a series of indexes: Hebrew Index, Scripture Index, Subject Index, and an index of Semantic Fields.

Taken as a whole, the New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology and amp; Exegesis is an unparalleled accomplishment in the field of biblical hermeneutics.
