Prepositions and Theology in the Greek New Testament

Prepositions and Theology in the Greek New Testament

$55.00

Hardback
Prepositions are important in the exegesis of the Greek New Testament, but they are at the same time very slippery words because they can have so many nuances. While Prepositions and Theology in the Greek New Testament rejects the idea of a 'theology of the prepositions,' it is a study of the numerous places in the Greek New Testament where prepositions contribute to the theological meaning of the text. Offered in the hope that it might encourage close study of the Greek text of the New Testament, its many features include the following: Coverage of all 17 'proper' and 42 'improper' prepositions Explores both literary and broader theological contexts Greek font---not transliteration---used throughout Comprehensive indexes to hundreds of verses, subjects, and Greek words Discussion of key repeated phrases that use a particular preposition

Write Your Own Review
A very solid work
4 stars By Ian Thomason, Jan 01 2013
The skeleton of the current book first appeared as an appendix to Volume 3 of the NIDNTT. The simply curious will no doubt find Dr Harris' earlier treatment suffcient; those who prefer to dig deeper will definitely want to add 'Prepositions and Theology in the New Testament' to their private libraries.

Dr Harris identifies the very real dangers of preposition-driven exegesis, having first identified several key features of prepositional usage in NT Greek. He then comprehensively addresses the 59 prepositions that one encounters in the pages of the NT.

In order to gain full advantage the reader must be proficient in Greek. However, those in the early stages of learning the language will still benefit from a careful reading of this work.
