A Greek- English Lexicon of New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature (3d ed.; Chicago and London: University of Chicago Press, 2000. BDAG. If you already own the second edition (BAGD), this is acceptable; but you are strongly encouraged to buy BDAG as soon as you can, since it is the state of the art in Greek lexicography. You are also strongly encouraged to purchase the A Reader’s Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament (see under Reader’s Lexicon in the Greek Resource List below). You will find this to be a helpful resource that you can use in any situation where you would not normally want to carry around a larger lexicon like BDAG.

It would be good for you to have one of these two in your library. These are intermediate grammars that you can use as a resource for understanding grammatical constructions you encounter while working on your Translation Notebook. They both go beyond the scope of It’s Still Greek to Me. Basics is a condensed version of Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics and is thus easier to use, cheaper, and lighter on the back! If you want more illustrations, more detail, and don’t mind paying a little more you can go ahead and get Beyond.
