Including entries for many more words, the new edition also lists more than 25, additional references to classical, intertestamental, Early Christian, and modern literature.
In this edition, Frederick W. Danker’s broad knowledge of Greco-Roman literature, as well as papyri and epigraphs, provides a more panoramic view of the world of Jesus and the New Testament. Danker has also introduced a more consistent mode of reference citation, and has provided a composite list of abbreviations to facilitate easy access to this wealth of information.
Perhaps the single most important lexical innovation of Danker’s edition is its inclusion of extended definitions for Greek terms.
For instance, a key meaning of “episkopos” was defined in the second American edition as overseer ; Danker defines it as “one who has the responsibility of safeguarding or seeing to it that something is done in the correct way, guardian.

Note, however, that it is a tool that takes some work to get used to. If one takes the time to read the introduction and to familiarize oneself with the many abbreviations this lexicon can provide great insight into usage and grammar in the late Hellenistic world. I would not recommend it for first-year Greek students since it assumes much greater knowledge of the language than they will yet have mastered. Intermediate students can benefit greatly, especially if they keep a copy of a good grammar handy.
As with any Greek reference work, it is important to use it as a starting point for greater understanding. As shown by Peters’ excellent work on the definite article, Brill Publishers, the last word about Greek grammar and usage has yet to be written. Pluck a feather from every goose that comes by. But follow no one absolutely. I am blown away by this beautiful book. Each entry consists of the word usage in prior literature, along with examples in greek of such usage.
Various definitions are given based on these examples. Some words go on for several pages. This book makes learning a new greek word an absolute treat!
Bauer’s Lexicon – Wikipedia
There just is no comparison. I got by for a long time using the lexicon in the back of my UBS 4th edition or using the free lexicons included with Bibleworks. The fact is, words are funny things Each word generally has a definition in bold type followed by a one word gloss for the word in bold italics. The formatting is very helpful for finding the verse you are looking for under the range of options.
I use adnker all the time, and it helps my understanding of the New Testament tremendously. If I could change anything, I would do two things. First, I would have hauer brief explanation in the introduction showing how the entries in the dictionary work. Things are very heavily abbreviated and honestly, I still don’t understand some of what I’m looking at. Thankfully that is all in regular print The second thing is the Greek font used for the entries. I hate the phi and rho! Within the definitions themselves, the font is much more traditional and far more attractive.
Finally, this is a lexicon. That will explain the theological significance attached to the words in question. This is an excellent example of the bookmaker’s art. The book is large but sturdy with good baufr to the page so there’s no “bleed-thru. The latest editor, Frederick Danker, was my professor and an acknowledged expert in his field, yet his focus in the classroom was to make the ancient texts applicable to the spiritual welfare of modern and post modern humanity.
I recently wrote a homily with a heavy focus on the biblical word ‘peace’ and found the definitions in this lexicon for the Greek words for peace–nouns, verbs and adjectives–very helpful for understanding the message of Jesus to his disciples. I do specialize in all Biblical languages, and I work with Ancient Greek a lot, therein, and I use this book a lot.
I highly recommend it for its scholarship. It’s just one of those books you get on a very tight budget. It’s a keystone work for the private library. One person found this helpful. I am reviewing the second edition of this book, having only recently discovered the third edition, which may have a number of differences. This lexicon is one of the more thorough lexicons of the New Testament.
It gives a wealth of information about each word, including several definitions as well as examples of its use in various places in scripture and other ancient writings. Even opinions of various scholars about meanings abuer found.
Dankrr book is touted as the lexicon that gives you the information that you need to make a personal decision about what the word means, discovering the definition on your own. The most common complaint about the dsnker is that it is so exhaustive that it can be difficult to use, and people often prefer to have a smaller dictionary that will just give them a quick definition.
I have personally lexifon quite impressed by the usability of this lexicon, however. For each word there are short, concise definitions in italics, and one can ignore all the supplementary information if one wills. If one can only afford one lexicon, I would hope they would get this one. It is the standard lexicon, and the complaints about it being cumbersome are unfounded.
This book was recommended by my teacher. Glad I got it. It is way different than a Strong’s though. It helps to understand what lexical form is when using this. Strong’s doesn’t help damker average reader understand semantic range. This helps to exact bwuer. This book makes you work for each little bit of understanding. The method of giving many, many different examples of usage for each Greek word really broadens your understanding of each word, but is time-consuming.
This lexicon is excellent for word studies beyond the Strong’s level and will drive you nuts if you don’t know your case forms yet I know from experience. But all in all, this is a resource no Biblical scholar or wannabe scholar should be without. Your understanding of the New Testament and of Greek will grow by leaps and bounds with diligent study of these very basic resources – even if you don’t intend to study Koine Greek professionally.
