Zondervan The New Linguistic and Exegetical Key to the Greek NT

The New Linguistic and Exegetical Key to the Greek New Testament is ideal for students and for busy pastors whose knowledge of Greek grammar is limited or rusty but who want to read the Greek New Testament. It not only simplifies reading the text of the Greek New Testament but also gives the reader a wealth of tools that a lexicon and grammar alone cannot provide. For those with a basic knowledge of first-year Greek grammar and vocabulary, this completely revised and greatly expanded edition of the highly successful Linguistic Key to the Greek New Testament (1982) makes reading the Greek New Testament faster, easier, and more effective. Going through the New Testament verse by verse, The New Linguistic and Exegetical Key to the Greek New Testament provides help in three areas: Lexical - It identifies unusual and uncommon word forms that in the past had to be looked up in a lexicon, as well as their meaning, based on BAGD and other standard lexicons. Grammatical - It provides grammatical insights from the leading Greek grammars, including Wallace's Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics. Exegetical - As the title of this revised and expanded edition indicates, this book also provides the reader with a wealth of exegetical insights and nuances, as well as references to a wide range of commentaries, monographs, journal articles, historical works, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and more.

This volume is thorough and concise. It covers the most important words, phrases, and idioms within a given Scripture. This book, along with BDAG, is what I use almost entirely for developing my classroom material.

This replacement for Rienecker and Roger's "Linguistic Key to the Greek New Testament" (1982), by Cleon Rogers II and Cleon Rogers III is a vastly expanded and greatly improved version of the original work. Rienecker was dropped from the author's list, and Cleon III was added. Rienecker's (as it was affectionately known) can still be used to great benefit, but this work is far superior. We used this work in our Intermediate Greek class at MABTS in 1999, and I still keep it on my desk. I reach for Rogers before almost any other Greek reference work. Combined with Mounce's "Complete Expository Dictionary of Old & New Testament Words" (2006), almost no other work is necessary for the pastor preaching from his Greek NT, though Kittle remains necessary if one is writing for theological journals, etc. Well worth the cost at twice the price.

I definitely give this book five stars. It goes through the entire New Testament by each chapter picking out key words. It gives the Greek word form, then tells what the form is (e.g. aor. subj. mid.) of ----- Greek word. It lists the verse and Greek word form in bold type so it is easy to follow and it does NOT transliterate the Greek into English. This makes it easy to study (I hate transliterated words). So some knowledge of Greek is necessary. Word meanings are given as well as some historical information. This is a book that every student of the N.T. who knows any Greek should have. If a word is used several times in a chapter Rogers will refer the reader to a previous verse where it is used. If it has any faults at all I just wish it was longer and included more word studies! But at 652 pages double columned, it is pretty complete.

This is one of the best books dealing with the Greek of the New Testament I've seen. It is different than Kittle's word study or any of the lexicons. It covers specific and important words as you go through the New Testament and covers the significance and use of the word in context. Very good for anyone studying koine Greek. Highly recommended.
