Enhanced for Bible Study using the Resource Guide
Available for: iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac, and Windows.
This illuminating resource travels through the New Testament, stopping to examine particular words and phrases in the Greek that reveal Biblical truths. A.T. Robertson's Word Pictures is not a formal commentary but rather reveals the "word pictures" of the Koine Greek. Robertson uses several methods to do this, including lexical and grammatical analysis, archaeological investigations that impact our understanding of the Bible, nuanced word and mood analysis and contextual meanings drawn from the Greek. Robertson desired to unveil the Greek New Testament's myriad of "word pictures," and this resource reflects the achievement of that desire.
Here is a sample of Robertson's Word Pictures from John 14:19:
But ye behold me (humeis de theoreite me). Emphatic position of humeis (ye) in contrast to the blind, unseeing world. Cf. 13:33; 16:10, 16. Because I live, ye shall live also (hoti ego zo kai humeis zesete). This is our blessed guarantee of immortal, eternal life, the continued living of Jesus. He is the surety of a better covenant (Heb 7:22), the Risen Christ Jesus. He had said it before (6:57).
A.T. Robertson was Professor of New Testament Interpretation at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky during the first half of the 20th century.
