e-Sword Version:
9.x - 10.x

Tab Name:
Hastings NT

This module combines the Dictionary of Christ and the Gospels and Dictionary of the Apostolic Church into one, combined Dictionary for easier reference.
  • Christ and the Gospels is mostly limited to Matthew - John.
  • Apostolic Church is mostly limited to Acts-Revelation.
Collectively, this forms a complete dictionary/encyclopedia of the New Testament, even though Hastings published the two dictionaries separately (and so did BibleSupport.com originally).

But, Hastings would have wanted it this way! He said, in the preface to Apostolic Church, "Together [Dictionary of the Apostolic Church] with the Dictionary of Christ and the Gospels, it forms a complete and independent Dictionary of the New Testament."

Hastings did not intend to write the Dictionary of the Apostolic Church when he compiled Dictionary of Christ and the Gospels, but after his publication of Christ and the Gospels, many people asked for the same, in depth scholarship for Acts - Revelation.

The difference between this New Testament "combined" dictionary and Hasting's Dictionary of the (whole) Bible is the depth of scholarship.

Click the links above for more information about either dictionary.

e-Sword Edition
There are some duplicate entries between the dictionaries, yet the articles are different. Thus, duplicate dictionary entries are differentiated with a "(2)".

The text is over 45 megabytes with nearly 3,000 articles.

(And this concludes all the Hastings text I've been given).

  • Uploaded Mac/e-sword 11 version.

Great work, tag team!
It is hard to express the value of this great work. I did note, however, in my study on Angels that a number of Greek vowels appear as a small square, indicating perhaps some font problem. Is this just me and my computer? Many thanks for this tool.
I just downloaded the 4-volume work and all of the Greek vowels seem to be perfect. Great job of enriching God's messengers.

reference typo in "abomination of desolation" DCG: see Nestle in . Times,  = "see Nestle in Expos. Times,."  also I found one font blocked using Win Xp. I will have to repost.


At least I caught something in e-sword copy which makes my effort of attempting to clean up DCG before Josh posted it a minor pay off.  In other words it was not a total waste of time to clean up DCG.
