Summary:
The Greek language, being one of the most precise in the world, lent itself easily to fine distinctions between words. In ancient Greece the philosophers loved to differentiate between close synonyms. The revelation communicated in the New Testament, however, raised the study of synonyms to the highest importance, for the doctrinal content of the New Testament is not the word of man but the Word of the living God.  Read more...

Abstract:

The Greek language, being one of the most precise in the world, lent itself easily to fine distinctions between words. In ancient Greece the philosophers loved to differentiate between close synonyms. The revelation communicated in the New Testament, however, raised the study of synonyms to the highest importance, for the doctrinal content of the New Testament is not the word of man but the Word of the living God. Since the meaning of some of these synonyms is basic to both New Testament exegesis and New Testament theology, no interpretation in either field dare ignore the shades of meaning in important words. It is crucial to determine as carefully as possible the exact meaning of words which might be confused but should be distinguished. - p. xiii.
