Robertson's Word Pictures in the New Testament

Available Platforms


Robertsonís Word Pictures in the New Testament is a classic word study reference set that takes you verse-by-verse through the entire New Testament. The author, A. T. Robertson, focuses on key words in each verse explaining delicate shades of meaning that are implicit in the Greek text but often lost in translation. Originally published in six volumes from 1930 to 1933, this electronic version provides Robertsonís work in its entirety.

Written forty years after Dr. Marvin R. Vincent wrote his Word Studies in the New Testament, Robertsonís work incorporated new knowledge of his day gained from more scientific methods of language study. Comparative grammar had thrown a flood of light on the real meaning of New Testament forms and idioms. And new original documents had been discovered in Egypt supporting evidence that New Testament Greek was the vernacular of its day.

Robertson wrote these volumes primarily for "...those who know no Greek or comparatively little and yet are anxious to get fresh help from the study of words and phrases in the New Testament." Rather than discussing the entire text of each verse, Robertsonís comments focus on key words important to the passage. His comments vary from lexical to grammatical to archaeological to exegetical, depending on what is most helpful to the reader in understanding the verse.


  • Covers the entire New Testament
  • Unabridged version originally published in six volumes
  • Verse-by-verse commentary explores the meaning of key Greek words and phrases of the New Testament that are sometimes lost in translation.
From the Preface

"I have called these volumes Word Pictures for the obvious reason that language was originally purely pictographic. Words have never gotten wholly away from the picture stage. These old Greek words in the New Testament are rich with meaning. They speak to us out of the past and with lively images to those who have eyes to see. It is impossible to translate all of one language into another. Much can be carried over, but not all. Delicate shades of meaning defy the translator. But some of the very words of Jesus we have still as he said: "The words that I have spoken unto you are spirit and are life" (Joh 6:63). We must never forget that in dealing with the words of Jesus we are dealing with things that have life and breath. That is true of all the New Testament, the most wonderful of all books of all time."
