A standard and widely-used reference work for nearly 40 years, the New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology and Exegesis (NIDNTTE) has been thoroughly revised and updated to aid today’s pastors, students, scholars, and teachers in their study of the New Testament.

The NIDNTTE offers a wealth of background and information on the meaning of Greek words in the New Testament—as well as related usage in classical Greek sources, the Septuagint, Jewish literature, and more.

Here are five ways to use the New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology and Exegesis (NIDNTTE) in the Olive Tree Bible App.

ONE – Traditional Dictionary

Open the NIDNTTE in the main window. Then, tap the title at the top of the screen. From here you can search for the word you are looking for as you would another other dictionary through the table of contents.

TWO – Traditional Dictionary Search

Similarly, with the NIDNTTE in the main window, tap the title again. Then, select Browse Dictionary and enter the Greek Word you are looking for.  The app searches the NIDNTTE for the Greek word. Next, tap the word and read the article.

These first two options require a working knowledge of biblical Greek.  I’m sorry to say that my Greek is a bit rusty. Okay, it’s a LOT rusty. (Apologies to Dr. Walls, my Greek professor)  But don’t worry. With the app, there is a way around our faults. Find out how in part three!

THREE – Strong’s Tagged Bible Integration

If you have a Strong’s Tagged Bible, using the NIDNTTE is a snap.  Open your Strong’s Tagged Bible  (I’m using the ESV Strong’s Tagged Bible in this example). Then, tap the word you want to learn more about.  I’ve chosen the word “worship” from Romans 12:1, latreia. From the Strong’s popup, tap “Lookup latreia“.

There you will find an article in the New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology and Exegesis.  Tap the NIDNTTE book cover and you can read the article on the Greek word in the popup window.

You even have the option to expand this resource into the Study Center.

FOUR – Original Language Integration 

Along the same lines, there is integration with Greek parsed texts like the NA28 with parsings.

FIVE – Greek New Testament Interlinear Integration

Lastly, the New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology and Exegesis integrates well with our Greek New Testament Interlinear resources.

The New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology and Exegesis is a great resource for going further in your understanding of biblical Greek. Get it today by visiting our store.
