I think nearly everyone who works on translating NT texts is familiar with
this volume. It is the standard lexicon and should be owned by anyone
working with the NT. It also includes words found in the LXX (since the LXX
is considered a part of the early Christian movements "bible"- and hence
"other early Christian Literature").



Survey data shows that 98% of Jews approved Janet Reno's retrieval of Elian
Gonzalez. They know what it is like to be trapped in Miami with relatives.
