In the second half of the 19th Century, scientists are beginning to deal with the development of modern Greek history. You investigate Greek texts of the first century and here, as in even earlier texts characteristics persist even in modern Greek. Despite this research, the location of the New Testament lexicographers unfortunately not systematically draw back to this later language level, when it comes to the study of word meanings. David S. Hasselbrook shows in this book, first on the major unit of the New Testament with Modern Greek, and at the same time makes the deficit of the lexicons of the New Testament that do not exploit this unit, carefully. He then uses the insights that can be gained from the study of the Modern Greek, in order to improve the general understanding of the literal meaning, the construction of definitions and presentation of lexical entries.
