What I’m Reading to Keep My Greek and Hebrew Fresh

September 29, 2014

To keep my Greek and Hebrew active, right now I’m alternating between two books (and enjoying them both):


Prepositions and Theology


Murray J. Harris’s Prepositions and Theology in the Greek New Testament (Zondervan, 2012).

Without accepting a so-called “theology of prepositions,” Harris’s guide is readable and illuminating. I found his exegetical guide to Colossians and Philemon quite helpful. Here is a sample of Prepositions and Theology.


Jonah Handbook on Hebrew Text


W. Dennis Tucker Jr.’s Jonah: A Handbook on the Hebrew Text (Baylor University Press, 2006).

I like this series already. I’m halfway through Jonah and finding Tucker’s handbook a welcome companion.

I’ll post a review of each when I finish.

    This sure looks like a significant upgrade in date and volume over the prepositional appendix in the NIDNTT. I’d be very curious of his conclusions on the possible causal use of “eis” (i.e., ‘because of’–instead of always looking/going forward ‘into.’ Thanks for the info!

      You’re welcome! Yes, it’s a welcome expansion of his other work (which I’ve not read yet).
