Greek dictionary advice requested
« on: December 04, 2008, 06:03:45 PM »

Hi all.  Hope this Advent season is joyful for all. 

I have a question and thought I'd mention it here rather than add to Ray's long list of emails.

Does anyone ever recall Ray mentioning or recommending a greek bible dictionary?

I know he has mentioned Strong's Greek Dictionary on occassion but I don't recall him ever specifically recommending one. I'd like to add one to my library. 

I saw one, not Strong's, at the book store but I was not sure it was the best choice.

I'd appreciate your recommendations or if anyone has ever talked to Ray about this and knows his recommendation I'd appreciate it.

Hi Dave,

Here are a couple emails about what Ray uses to study.

http://www.forums.bible-truths.com/index.php/topic,3558.0.html ---

I use a Nelson #1755 King James Bible for study and teaching.
I also recommend: The Concordant Literal Translation, Rotherham's Emphasized Bible,
and The Emphatic Diaglott.
Get e-Sword for you computer, and/or Strong's Expanded Exhaustive Concordance,
and Wigram's The Englishman's Hebrew and Greek Concordances.
And maybe a good Bible Dictionary. (I don't know of a good one, so just buy one).
That's all you need.

 e-Sword is keyed to Strong's Concodrance numbers. That's why you
also need Wigram's which is also keyed to Dr. Strong's Concordance, but it has
the benefit of seeing where every Hebrew and Greek word is translated differently
from the word or words that one might look up in Strong's Concordance alone.
You can add other translations to e-Sword to compare translations, but only the
King James is used to show from which Hebrew or Greek word each translation
in the King James comes from.

God be with you,
Ray

Hi Kat,
thanks for replying...but yeah...I have all those and e-sword....but what I don't have is a greek dictionary for the Bible. (in book form...not software)
In both those emails Ray doesn't mention a greek dictionary and maybe there isn't a good one and so he doesn't mention it.  Thanks though.

Hi Dave,

I can't remember anywhere Ray mentions a 'Greek' dictionary in particular.  But here is another email where he mentions a Bible dictionary.
