In our study on Wednesday evenings, we’ll cover the basics of New Testament Koine Greek including:
- The Greek Alphabet
- Erasmian Pronunciation
- Basics of English and Greek Grammar for Nouns and Verbs
- Greek Vocabulary
- Interacting with Greek in Interlinear Bibles or Bible Software
- Word Studies and Examining Bible Verses in Greek
The purpose of this class is to enable students to access study tools which require some knowledge of Greek. The course will not prepare students to read the Greek New Testament independently but the course can serve as a foundation for further study to read Greek if desired.
Our main textbook is Greek for the Rest of Us, Second Edition by William D. Mounce. Books will be provided to students attending the class. To get the most out of this study, you should ALSO STUDY OUTSIDE OF CLASS several times per week for at least 20 minutes per session. If you only think about this once per week then it will not be very effective. This page has a wealth of FREE resources to assist you with this. There are numerous lecturers available via video recording. Find the one(s) who resonate best with you. These have been selected because they use the same pronunciation scheme and are kind of fun.
Disclaimer: These lecturers might occasionally make theological comments with which we don’t necessarily agree. Most of the material is about the Greek language. Be a critical thinker.
Supplemental Materials for the Greek for the Rest of Us Book
On the Bible Study Greek page, there are various free resources for each chapter such as audio pronunciation of vocabulary words, some free video lectures and screencasts, and other downloads. (NOTE: Some of these videos are unavailable for free.)
There is also a free BiblicalTraining mobile app (Apple iOS or Android) from which you can access the lectures without creating an account. The relevant course is entitled Greek Tools for Bible Study.
The course is also available in a web browser but you must create a free account to enroll.
(Note: The professor makes some comments in the first lecture about Mark 16:16 and baptism with which we strongly disagree.)
- STEP Bible
- ESV.org (The interlinear feature does not work on mobile devices.)
- Bible Hub
- Blue Letter Bible
- Bible Study Tools
- Scripture 4 All
