You don't need an understanding of Greek to use this study. This is also not a dictionary. It contains superb scholarship that will deepen your understanding of New Testament Scripture.
Wuest did something unique in this volume by choosing 16 New Testament books, tracing each verse of the text, and stopping along the way to fully explain each Greek word of significance. The benefit to you is that he covered every significant Greek word you're likely to study.
Published specifically to be used alongside word study tools, the Wuest Expanded Translation of the Bible also included in this bundle is the perfect companion to Word Studies in the Greek New Testament. As much as possible, Wuest follows the way the original text flows in the Greek. While this might be less enjoyable for reading, it's quite effective for word study. The result of this is a clearer understanding of what a first century Christian would have understood while reading the Scriptures. The use of additional words and phrases communicate the full meaning of the Greek words and the tenses of the verbs. It is based on Nestle's critical text.
