80 years after its initial publication in German, Kittel’s legendary set remains one of the most sought after reference resources on the New Testament. The Theological Dictionary of the New Testament [TDNT] comprises 10 volumes, is unabridged, and is most useful to those who have completed one full year of Greek. Each significant Greek word in the New Testament is presented comprehensively–and often exhaustively–taking account of its:
- Greek/linguistic background
- role in the Old Testament (in Hebrew and the Septuagint)
- use by Philo, Josephus, and in Rabbinic Literature
- uses in the New Testament within various genres
- appearances (where appropriate) in the Apostolic Fathers
More than 100 distinguished scholars contributed to the work, including specialists in Old Testament, Septuagint, Hellenistic, Semitic and Rabbinic studies. Extensive bibliographies and convenient footnotes accompany each article. Volume 10 contains index material. The TDNT was translated by the inexhaustible Geoffrey W. Bromiley, who also translated Barth’s Church Dogmatics.
