If you have studied Biblical Greek, you know that even after two or three semesters in the classroom it can be easy to soon forget most of what you learned, especially vocabulary. After entering the working world, most of us who studied Greek in seminary or college find it challenging to pay much attention to the language, let alone achieve our primary goals of exegeting and meditating on God’s Word in the original Greek.
Keep Up Your Biblical Greek in Two Minutes a Day: Volume 1 has been specially designed to build on your previous study of Greek and help you read a small amount of the New Testament in its original language every day in an easy, manageable, and spiritually enriching way. It does not replace the need for a grammar or textbook; rather, it complements grammatical study by helping you to build a robust vocabulary and to review morphology and syntax in a completely inductive way, and without using any grammatical jargon. The page for each day presents:
• one new vocabulary word, with transliteration and meanings, and two review words from earlier in the book
• the English text of a New Testament verse, with these three Greek words embedded in it, as they appear in the verse
• the Greek text of the verse, in full and then divided into phrases or clauses, with the corresponding English phrases or clauses next to them
The book presents, one day at a time and in order of descending frequency, the 365 most frequently occurring words in the New Testament (about 20 percent more vocabulary than one typically learns in a first-year Greek class).
Keep Up Your Biblical Greek in Two Minutes a Day: Volume 1 is designed to help you reconnect with Greek in an easy and enriching way and to empower you with the vocabulary you need to begin again reading the New Testament in its original language.
