The New Acrostic Study Bible

It is no mystery to Bible scholars that the New Testament was not written in the Classical Attic, but in “the common dialect” (ἡ κοινὴ διάλεκτος) of the era; known by its English transliteration as Koine. Although innumerable methods of study are propagated by Bible teachers concerning Biblical Theology, it is agreed that there is no better way to discover truth from God’s Word than through a sound method of historical exegesis. When left with a translation only, many of the riches – easily found within the Koine and Roman history – go unnoticed by the average reader. This dilemma has caused untold thousands to heed the Apostle Paul’s advice to, “study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (II Tim. 2:15). Because it is known that volumes of treasure are still buried within the Koine, the student is challenged to “search the scriptures” (Jn. 5:39) and chart his own independent course with God’s Word. In this Limited Edition Greek New Testament, the student will have the ability of the scholar to properly interpret and effectively master the New Testament’s riches by educating himself in the following:

  • Learn the hermeneutical method of interpreting the New Testament.
  • Learn how to properly parse the New Testament’s verbs: person, number, tense, voice and mood.
  • Learn how to check whether the article is masculine, feminine or neuter, definite or indefinite, arthrous or anarthrous in the New Testament.
  • Learn the dual nature of the Greek infinitive.
  • Learn what case the noun is in: nominative, genitive, dative, accusative or vocative.
  • Learn the verb’s voice: active, passive or middle.
  • Learn the verb’s tense: present imperfect, future, aorist, perfect, pluperfect or future perfect.
  • Learn the number and person of the verb: first, second or third person.
  • Learn the verb’s mood: indicative, subjunctive, optative or imperative.
  • Learn the different prepositional pre-fixes and their relevance in light of locative sphere.
  • Learn how to discern the disjunctive conjunction in light of the connective.
  • Learn how to properly associate each English word with its proper Greek root word.
  • Learn to recognize lively word pictures in the Greek which are completely hidden to the English only reader.

B: The footnotes are just information about the book, verse, or historical events according to the passage or verse it talks about. Not those Critical footnotes what NIV is known for. But helpful notes answering certain subjects.

C. Paper quality* Standard glossy paper provides an excellent opaque base for rich process printing. Similar to the Magazine papers and College Text gloss papers you study in your Art or History class. Far better than most paper qualities most Bibles and Books use. This is a bonus*.

It contains two black ribbons yes 2 black ribbons. Love it! No Greek-English Parallel New testament has to don that! since I own almost all of them from big companies like Zondervan, Thomas Nelson, Crossway, Hendrickson, Grace Publishers, and so on not dissing them but so far I haven seen one that published with 2 ribbons like The New Acrostic Study Bible. And the quality is just equal but from the paper better!
