Using the LSJ Greek lexicon besides BDAG

On the Logos Bible software blog, Rick Brannan encourages students of New Testament Greek to use the Liddell-Scott-Jones lexicon besides the BDAG (Bauer-Danker-Arndt-Gingrich) lexicon. I have seen other comments recently on the Internet which encourage those who study Koine (Hellenestic) Greek to supplement their study with attention paid to earlier Classical Greek, as well. This makes sense since the vocabulary and syntax of Koine Greek evolved from Classical Greek through normal language changes.

Thank you, Wayne. It is worth noting that you don't have to pay Logos $135 to get LSJ (or Amazon $150 for a printed copy), for it is searchable online, free, at Perseus, http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/cgi-bin/ptext?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A1999.04.0057 - although Perseus offers the 1940 edition whereas Logos and Amazon offer a 1996 revision.
