Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament (Multi-Volume Set)
Call Number: REF BS440 .B5713
Location: Theological Reference Collection (Kivett 3rd Floor)
A major, multivolume reference work in which the key Hebrew and Aramaic words of the Old Testament are discussed in depth. With the emphasis on meaning, each word study starts from the narrower everyday senses of the word and builds to an understanding of theologically significant concepts. Included under each keyword is consideration of the larger groups of words related semantically, as well as detailed surveys of a world's occurrences, both in the biblical material and elsewhere. To aid the Old Testament student who does not have the linguistic background of a scholar, Hebrew words have been transliterated, and meanings of foreign words are provided.
