BDAG companion or replacement:

Some time back I saw a post on another book to look at that looked at the subjects somewhat differently than does BDAG [using sources that were not found in BDAG] At the time I was not interested (cost) now I have BDAG and cannot find that post – please help

  

Did a Search on BDAG in the forum and found page after page but after reading 15 pages of them and looking at some of the items and the nearby ones I did not find what I was looking for – I did try to do this on my own but FAILED  [TOTAL count is 99 pages – BDAG is a very popular subject]

BDAG is pretty up to date so maybe you are thinking of another lexicon. Thayer's was popular at one time but out of date as soon as it was published because of papyrus discoveries in Egypt. Moulton and Milligan extensively used those papyrii. For at least the last two editions of BDAG (BAGD and BDAG) Moulton and Milligan's work has been digested into their work. M-M would give you access to the actual entries and data BDAG used in their lexical entries, however.

So I can't point you to a lexicon that has newer or other data that BDAG hasn't used. I would be interested in learning about such a lexicon if it exists.

Moulton & Milligan's Vocabulary of the Greek Testament is the BDAG companion I was looking for and have now ordered - more information in the prior posts - thanks

The situation with BDAG and M-M is slightly more complicated than that. BDAG is somewhat idiosyncratic with its use of M-M. Sometimes when M-M is included at the end of a BDAG entry, it means that M-M's data was used for BDAG, but other times it just means that M-M has an entry listed for that word that's worth examining. 

Determining which scenario is the case requires one to actually have M-M at hand.
