Prepositions and Theology in the Greek New Testament


This is a Greek work I’ve longed for at least 30 years. Murray Harris, professor emeritus of the New Testament and Exegesis at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, wrote the detailed article on prepositions in New International Dictionary of NT (see Appendix in volume 3), and now he has updated his work and added much to it. Was it Luther who said that all theology hanged on prepositions? That is not far from the truth. Many of the prepositions in the New Testament are very critical in their meaning, bringing out such ideas as the substitutionary death of Christ (Mark 10:45 where “for” in “to give His life a ransom for many” means “to give His life a ransom in the place of many”). Definitely for the advanced Greek student.
