Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament by Louw & Nida is organized according to semantic domains, meaning all Greek words with closely related meanings are defined together in categories (domains) such as Foods, Kinship Terms, Attitudes, Power, Space Relations, etc. There are 93 domains presented. This lexicon was produced after many years of missionary field work during which the authors decided that conventional lexicons where not adequate for translators. Also included are indexes which allow the user to locate words either by English, by Greek, or by Scripture passage in which they occur.
