In the first decade of the 1900's James Hope Moulton asked George Milligan to join him in assembling data from the papyri regarding particular New Testament words. After Moulton's death in 1915 Milligan continued the work. The result was the publication of The Vocabulary of the Greek Testament in fascicles between 1914 and 1929 and in a single-volume edition in 1930. This work has been reprinted a number of times, and New Testament scholars still consider it a standard reference.
Milligan's 14-page introduction describes the papyri and their significance for our understanding of the language of the New Testament. Then, after a table of abbreviations, follow 705 pages of entries in alphabetical order. The entries are given in Greek script, but in this new Hendrickson reprint Strong's numbers have been added to make the work more accessible to those with limited knowledge of Greek.
Another important new addition to this Hendrickson edition is an index of New Testament passages. This thorough index, meticulously prepared under the direction of Professor Daniel B. Wallace of Dallas Theological Seminary, will greatly enhance the usefulness of this classic work for scholars, pastors, and all who wish to delve more deeply into the meanings of New Testament words.
James Hope Moulton taught at Cambridge and at Manchester and authored the introductory and morphological volumes in the authoritative Grammar of New Testament Greek.
George Milligan taught at Glasgow and authored numerous works pertaining to the New Testament and the papyri.
