Logic of the Order of Definitions in BDAG 3rd ed

Post by Gary Collier » April 27th, 2015, 9:30 pm

I have read somewhere (?) that the order of definitions in BDAG3 is generally by order of widespread usage (not necessarily biblical text) most frequent to least. But I haven't found this explanation in BDAG itself. Also, I note that this is not apparently a reliable principle. As one example, απτω is listed quite differently (in order) in LSJ and BDAG. Insights on the logic of the order of BDAG defs will be appreciated.
