Ancient Greek works inspired the most important Saints of the Church, starting with St. Paul the Apostle and including St. Augustine of Hippo, St. Thomas Aquinas, and too many others to name. Aristotle is Aquinas's "The Philosopher," on whom Catholic theology is based. Aristotle's Rhetoric influenced St. Paul in the writing of his fourteen Epistles in the New Testament. Homer's Iliad and Odyssey inspired the Greeks, the Romans, the Roman Catholic Church, and all those up to the present day. There are allusions to it in the New Testament.

Arndt/Gingerich is considered to be the best Greek-English lexicon of the New Testament. It also includes entries for early Christian literature, i.e., the Apostolic and Patristic Fathers through the sixth century. The typeface is clear and each entry is broken down into its breadth of meaning, with citations to authors included. There is an extensive introduction to the language of the Bible and early Christianity, particularly noting the development of the language since the Classical Period.
