Researching Biblical (NT) Koine Greek
The problem with much traditional views of biblical texts is it totally disregards
both the historical society context as well as what did the Greek word mean to the
readers of the day. A concordance like Strong's etc. is virtually worthless since
it includes all possible meanings without any attempt to seriously look at what
it actually meant to the Hebrew Christians 2000 years ago.
One of the most respected theological sources to attempt to find what the true understanding
of the NT Greek is what is often referred to as the "Kittel".
It's name is derived from its writer, a German named Kittel. Its real name is "The
Theological Dictionary of the New Testament" This extensive resource (about
15 volumes) is considered one of the best attempts to look at both NT and other
Greek literature written in biblical times to try and understand the Greek meanings.
There is also a "Little Kittel" which just deals with NT Greek. It is
much like a dictionary but you have to know Greek since while the narrative has
been translated from German to English the word listings are in Greek. There also
is another version that transliterates the Greek into English that most seminary
libraries probably have.
