Basic to learning New Testament Greek is acquiring an adequate vocabulary. The traditional methods used for vocabulary building are based on memorization of frequency lists or cognate groups. Mark Wilson introduces Greek students to a method widely used today in general language learning--semantic domains, or categories. Wilson arranges the Greek words in ninety-three categories, including geographical objects and features, artifacts, body parts, people, linear movement, kinship, attitudes and emotions, communication, time, and moral and ethical qualities. He also includes frequency counts for every Greek word.

What a great idea! This should be a very helpful tool for students moving beyond the basic building blocks toward reading proficiency." aGeorge H. Guthrie, Benjamin W. Perry Professor of Bible Union UniversityaI highly recommend this book to all students as a helpful guide to learning the vocabulary of the Greek New Testament and as a supplement to [Louw and Nida.]a aDavid Alan Black Southeastern Baptist Theological SeminaryaThis is a book to be warmly commended and heavily used.
