Details


Requires Accordance 11.1 or above and iOS 2.3 or above.

This in-depth yet student-friendly introduction to Koine Greek provides a full grounding in Greek grammar, while starting to build skill in the use of exegetical tools. The approach, informed by twenty-five years of classroom teaching, emphasizes reading Greek for comprehension as opposed to merely translating it.

Reading Koine Greek covers not only New Testament Greek but also the wider range of Bible-related Greek (LXX, Apostolic Fathers, and other texts). The workbook is integrated into the textbook, enabling students to encounter real examples as they learn each new concept. The book offers thorough explanations of the grammar and concepts as well as multiple examples in context, enabling students to make the most of study time outside of class--whether the traditional classroom or distance learning. Recent discussions of Greek grammar are incorporated, particularly in the verbal system (verbal aspect, the middle voice, deponent verbs, and so on), and full definitions are provided for vocabulary words. Each chapter concludes with an extended reading passage that highlights new material. The book also introduces students to reference tools for biblical Greek. Professors and students in first-year Greek classes will value this work.

The Accordance edition includes audio recordings throughout the grammar with vocabulary, readings, and the paradigms and forms in the Appendices.

This is an excellent Greek Grammar, I would strongly recommend it to anyone wishing to review/renew their greek studies, or to anyone who wants an up-to-date comprehensive reference. It is super comprehensive and clearly and plainly written.

There are only two downsides to this book, some practical, and one technical.

1. It might not be the best textbook for a beginner. It has minimal examples and exercises. Practical exercises are critical, if you are self studying from scratch, you would be best served by a different textbook (or at least this textbook needs to be supplemented).
2. The textbook includes a lot of information which is helpful, but perhaps not important for a beginner. This may detract from the initial process of bootstrapping a student to the point of being able to comfortably read short passages of scripture.
3. This book comes with audio recordings using Erasmian pronunciation, thus this module will consume a large amount of disk space, or space on your iPad. ...
