 Studying Greek

Hello!

I would like to begin the journey of studying Greek. Does anyone have any recommendations? I would be interested in books, audio/video teachings, or even correspondence classes. Right now I'm starting with little to no knowledge.

Thanks for the info!

 Re: Studying Greek

You may find [url=http://www.amazon.com/New-Testament-Greek-Beginning-Intermediate/dp/0913573329]THIS BOOK[/url] helpful, you could use it to teach yourself the basics.

In Christ,

Ron

This book, [url=http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0310250870/ref=sib_dp_pt/002-1224664-8453623#reader-link]Basics of Biblical Greek[/url] by William Mounce is another great place to start. It will be a little more costly than Ron (inTheLight)'s recommendation but it comes with a CD and access to a web site. I have just started a refresher and to check the foundations is very useful. There is a whole industry of support and encouragement behind this book. You can also get a companion workbook. Tje CD has video/audio powerpoint type support and the atmosphere of the college is encouraging too.

If you prod that 'Surprise Me' button a few times it will be almost as useful as browsing in the store.

 Re:

Question to add
Did learning Greek help a bunch? I am reading a guide to exegesis by Baker book company and one of the authors said he would not tell people to not take it, but he doesn't feel it's a necessity. So I guess a). should I learn b). learn some basics c). the English verses are goog
(note since becoming a Christian I have no life and really just read my Bible hours a day)
Lemme know please
Thanx
Thom

 Re:

I agree, Basics to Biblical Greek by Mounce. We used it in seminary, and, having compared it to some other Greek grammars out there, I don't think there is a better system. Also, be sure to get the work book, so you can practice translating Greek from the New Testament from the very first chapter. Also, the book comes with a very good CD that has short 15 minute audio lectures on each chapter. Mounce also sells a full CD lecture series that he did at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary if you wanna fork up a few extra dollars for that.

 Re:

I think it is a great idea to study original languages. I am getting ready to start hebrew studies. It really helps to catch the nuances in the scripture that I believe english doesnt get. Blessings

I am studying NT Greek at Bible college this year, and we are using Mounces book for our study. Along with the work book.

 Re:

Another resource to help understand the Greek meanings better (although not a Greek textbook) is Kenneth Wuest's set of word studies. He goes through the entire New Testament and really does a good job of explaining what the original meant. It is for the layperson as well as the "scholar."
I think studying the original languages are important.
May God bless your time of study.
In His service,
