Reading Biblical Greek introduces first-year Greek students to the essential information needed to optimize their grasp of the fundamentals of the Greek language—no more and no less—enabling them to read and translate the Greek of the New Testament as soon as possible.
The learning approach in Reading Biblical Greek revolves around three core elements: grammar, vocabulary, and reading & translation.
- Grammar. The grammar consists of micro-lessons, which break up information in small, digestible chunks. Each micro-lesson addresses a single point. This arrangement makes for easy comprehension and review. It also allows the teacher to pace the material based on its difficulty and ability of their students. New learning is incremental and recursive-each new piece builds on and reinforces prior learning. Lessons are structured in three columns: 1) Introducing new topic; 2) Material to be memorized; and 3) Examples and exercises.
- Vocabulary. As an essential complement to grammar, vocabulary is introduced at strategic points and is arranged first by what the student has been learning in grammar, and then by frequency. The vocabulary lists are collated at the back of the book for easy access. The first 13 vocabulary lists are keyed to Mark 1-4 to help students to integrate their vocabulary learning with a "real" Greek text.
- Reading & Translation. The goal of this grammar is to enable students to read and translate the Greek of the New Testament. Thus, the content is structured and tied to a specific Greek text to enable reading as soon as possible. The student will have read and translated the whole of Mark 1-4 by the end of the course. The accompanying Reading Biblical Greek Workbook is a vital part of the approach. It breaks up the text of Mark 1-4 into manageable portions and provides vocabulary and grammatical assistance as required.
While Reading Biblical Greek only introduces students to information that is essential to grasp of the fundamentals of the Greek language, it is informed by the latest and best of Greek and linguistic scholarship, enabling students to move seamlessly to further study.

Ken2 Stars Out Of 5Reading Biblical GreekJuly 19, 2017KenQuality: 5Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1After waiting many months for the release of the grammar, workbook, and dvd's, I finally received the product - each part individually, because the Pack was not available at that time. Unfortunately, the grammar is completely unusable for me. The print is so small that, even with 4x cheaters I can't distinguish the breathing marks and accents. I am able to read most books without cheaters, but even with the high powered cheaters I can't read the grammar. The DVD lectures are great. I haven't been able to use the workbook, so can't comment on that. However, without being able to use the grammar, the rest of the pack is useless.
