Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words combines in one volume W. E. Vine’s
Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words and Nelson’s Expository Dictionary of the Old
Testament by Merrill Unger and William White, Jr. The lasting popularity of these words has provided
a convincing indication that serious students of the Bible would find this one-volume edition a useful and
welcome addition to any reference library.
The publication of this volume provides a resource that will facilitate the study of
biblical word meanings for those who may or may not have had formal training in Greek or Hebrew. At no
other time has there been available a more complete language aid or study tool.
Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words allows the reader easy access to
the alphabetized English equivalents of the Greek or Hebrew words from which they are translated. Throughout
the text the most significant biblical words are illustrated by Scripture passages, comments, cross-references,
ancient and modern meanings, precise etymologies, historical notes, and clearly defined technical information.
Each original language is indexed, making this volume’s format especially practical. Finally, the new
typesetting and page layout allows for correcting the errors that appeared in previous editions and presenting
the content in an easy to use, compact format.
It is a pleasure to introduce a versatile reference work of this importance that will
service the needs of beginning lay students and scholars alike.
"[Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words] has been one of my favorite study
tools for years…and the new edition has proved to be even more helpful because it includes key words
for the Old Testament. The fact that the new edition is "coded" to other Greek and Hebrew
study aids makes it a great time-saver for he busy student." Warren W. Wiersbe
