- The complete series
Beginning with 'ābh ('āb), “father,” and continuing through the alphabet, the TDOT volumes present in-depth discussions of the key Hebrew and Aramaic words in the Old Testament. The TDOT considers for each keyword the larger groups of words that are related linguistically or semantically. Included are detailed surveys of a word’s occurrences, not only in biblical material but also in other ancient Near Eastern writings. You'll find that attention is paid to: Etymology, Lexical Field, Archaeological Evidence, Secular Usage, Theological Usage, Septuagint Usage, Dead Sea Scroll Usage, and more.
The TDOT’s emphasis is on Hebrew terminology and on biblical usage. The contributors employ philology as well as form-critical and traditio-historical methods, with the aim of understanding the religious statements in the Old Testament. Extensive bibliographical information adds to the value of this reference work.
This lexicon serves the needs of Old Testament students who have no linguistic background and those of more advanced scholars. It does so without sacrificing the needs of the latter. Ancient scripts (Hebrew, Greek, etc.) are regularly transliterated in a readable way, and meanings of foreign words are given in many cases where the meanings might be obvious to advanced scholars.
