The Concept

The Contexticon enables New Testament
readers to “hear” the import of biblical language
more nearly as native Greek speakers in the Greco‐Roman world. Users – with or without knowledge of Greek – discover possibilities of
nuance and rhetorical power they could not
fully appreciate before.

The Contexticon does not attempt to pin down "meanings" on behalf of users. Instead, it supports hands-on exploration in preparation for interp-
retation. Users are assisted by expert "tours" of
ancient term usage. These offer rapid overviews. But direct encounter with illuminating evidence and fresh engagement with the biblical heritage lie at the heart of the Contexticon experience.
