Bridging the Grammar Gap Voice, tense, mood, participles . . . learning biblical Greek is tough enough with a firm grasp of the building blocks of English and daunting to those without. But that's just where many first-year students are. Through many years in the classroom, veteran language instructor Gary Long has learned that it's in the first semester that many students get bogged down in grammatical basics. Soon confidence, morale--and then grades--start to slip. A growing number of students have forgotten, or never learned, the fundamental grammatical concepts needed for studying Biblical Greek. Explanations of these concepts in standard Greek textbooks are either too skimpy or too complex. This practical resource will help. Written for learners with little or no formal study of grammar, this invaluable complement to standard classroom textbooks clarifies English grammar in order to more effectively teach concepts that are specific to New Testament Greek. Arranged to supplement teaching grammars, each chapter takes up individual concepts, first explaining how the concept works in English, then illustrating its use in biblical Greek. Abundant English and Greek examples illustrate each concept, most of them visually analyzed. Glossaries and translations help students comprehend the Greek words in each example.

Der Begriff Erlösung gehört zu den zentralen Glaubensaussagen der christlichen Tradition, wobei die hebräische Wurzel PDY im Alten Testament als ein wichtiger Baustein dient. Die vorliegende Arbeit versucht, unterb Berücksichtigung der außerbiblischen Belege die etymologische Grundbedeutung sowie die religions- und theologiegeschichtliche Entwicklung der Wurzel PDY im Alten Testament zu erklären. Als Hauptergebnis ergibt sich die These, dass es bei dem Gebrauch der semitischen Wurzel PDY um eine Handlung geht, die darauf zielt, durch Erbringung eines Gegenwertes das Leben aus dem Tod auszulösen. Darüber hinaus wird gezeigt, dass die Wurzel PDY im theologischen Sprachgebrauch des Alten Testaments eine einzigartige Bedeutungsentwicklung erfahren hat, die im Titel der Arbeit bündig zum Ausdruck kommt.

Many pastors find it easier to preach on the New Testament than the Old Testament, with its powerful and often shocking narrative, prophetic warnings and calls to holiness. For many preachers seeking to make the Bible relevant, it's far easier--and safer--to stay out of the woods and plow the well-worn fields of the newer canon. Preaching the Old Testament equips pastors to journey into the forest and find a passion and confidence for preaching on the Old Testament. This book helps them keep up on their Hebrew, understand the themes of the Old Testament, and unpack Jesus' foundational text to take their congregations to a deeper understanding of Christ himself.

A Guide to Biblical Hebrew Syntax introduces and abridges the syntactical features of the original language of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. An intermediate-level reference grammar for Biblical Hebrew, it assumes an understanding of elementary phonology and morphology, and it defines and illustrates the fundamental syntactical features of Biblical Hebrew that most intermediate-level readers struggle to master. The volume divides Biblical Hebrew syntax and morphology, into four parts. The first three cover the individual words (nouns, verbs, and particles) with the goal of helping the reader move from morphological and syntactical observations to meaning and significance. The fourth section moves beyond phrase-level phenomena and considers the larger relationships of clauses and sentences. Since publication of the First Edition, research on Biblical Hebrew syntax has substantially evolved. This new edition incorporates these developments through detailed descriptions of grammatical phenomena from a linguistics approach. It retains the labels and terminology used in the First Edition to maintain continuity with the majority of entry-level and more advanced grammars.

Fourteen theological scholars address key topics related to the age of the earth, which is the crucial issue of debate in the church today regarding origins. Bringing to bear rigorous biblical, theological, and historical arguments in favor of a six-day creation, the global Flood, and a young earth, they also provide much-needed critiques of a number of contemporary old-earth interpretations of the book of Genesis. This fresh defense of the literal history of Genesis 1-11 nicely complements other studies which focus more on the scientific evidence of young-earth creationism. As such, this book can serve as a versatile supplement to other works, but is also designed to be used as a standalone text for seminary and Bible college professors and students, pastors, missionaries, and others who want in-depth apologetic resources. Coming to Grips with Genesis: Biblical Authority and the Age of the Earthincludes: Forewords by Dr. John MacArthur, President of the Master's Seminary and Senior Pastor of Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, CA; and the late Dr. Henry Morris, Founder and President Emeritus, Institute for Creation Research Detailed analysis of the verbs of Genesis 1 A defense of the Genesis 5 & 11 genealogies as strict chronologies Reasons for rejecting millions of years of death and natural evil before Adam's sin Careful reflection on Jesus' teachings regarding a young earth

Die biblischen Propheten sind die markantesten Repräsentanten der jüdischen Religion und nehmen auch im Christentum und im Islam eine zentrale Stellung ein. Ihre Geschichte reicht zurück in den Alten Orient und das Alte Israel, als es die jüdische Religion noch nicht gab. In dieser Zeit haben Propheten keine Bücher geschrieben, und auch in ihrem Auftreten und in ihrer Botschaft unterscheiden sie sich sehr von den Propheten der Hebräischen Bibel. Das macht eine historische und literarische Beschäftigung mit den Quellen nötig. Dieses Buch beschreibt die außerbiblischen Zeugnisse der Prophetie und unterscheidet in der biblischen Überlieferung selbst zwischen den historischen und den literarischen Propheten. Es bietet so einen umfassenden Überblick über die Erscheinungsformen und die Geschichte der Prophetie von der altorientalischen Mantik bis zur jüdischen Apokalyptik und der christlichen Rezeption im Neuen Testament.

The "Greek-German Dictionary of Writings from the New Testament and Early Christian Literature" is one of the standard works for New Testament scholars, researchers in patristics, and classical philologists. The 6th edition has been completely revised in all respects - in the NT text-base (both with respect to its comprehensiveness and the provision of variants) and in the Apostolic Fathers and the New Testament Apocrypha (these have been incorporated as comprehensively as possible for the first time). In addition, the Apologists and Early Church Fathers have been cited far more frequently than was previously the case. Numerous authors from the Christian, intertestamentary and classical fields have been referenced for the first time. Over 250 new articles have been included. The new typography speeds up searching and makes the structure of the articles more transparent. Thus, it waspossible to expand the material by about a third without increasing the number of pages.
