Revelation: A Handbook on the Greek Text
offers teachers and students a comprehensive guide to the grammar and vocabulary of Revelation. A perfect supplement to any commentary, this volume’s lexical, analytical, and syntactical analysis is a helpful tool in navigating New Testament literature. But more than just providing an analytic key, David Mathewson leads students toward both a greater understanding of the Greek text and an appreciation for the textual, rhetorical, and interpretive intricacies not available in English translations. This handbook is an essential tool for the serious student.
About the series:
What distinguishes the Baylor Handbooks on the Greek New Testament
from other available resources is the detailed and comprehensive attention paid to the Greek text of the New Testament. Each handbook provides a convenient reference tool that explains the syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, deals with text-critical questions that have a significant bearing on how the text is understood, and addresses questions relating to the Greek text that are frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries, all in a succinct and accessible manner.
"Through the years, the Greek of Revelation has acquired a certain notoriety, with its lack of case agreements and other peculiarities. David Mathewson takes on the challenge of analyzing and describing the Greek of the book of Revelation, providing readers an eminently helpful resource. This handbook will be valuable for Greek enthusiasts of all levels."—Jeannine Brown, Professor of New Testament, Bethel Seminary, San Diego
"Mathewson’s handbook (like the series in general) would be a very valuable aid to a student or preacher with a good foundation in Greek who wishes to work through the biblical text in Greek."—Alistair I. Wilson, Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology
"Mathewson provides more than just an analytic key; he leads students toward both a greater understanding of the Greek text and an appreciation for the textual, rhetorical, and interpretive intricacies not available in English translations."—Interpretation: Journal of Bible and Theology
