English may be the biggest obstacle to learning Greek! Greek textbooks use jargon such as "noun," "verb," "morphology," and "syntax," which sometimes sounds foreign. Many of us may remember them from grade school, but the memories may now be foggy from time and disuse. This book is written for hazy memories of English that need a brush up before learning Greek. Different than other aids to learning Greek, Brushing Up English to Learn Greek introduces verbal aspect to beginning students. English emphasizes the time of an action but Greek emphasizes the point of view--or aspect--of an action. This book helps students build a bridge of understanding between the different thought worlds of English and Greek.

New Testament Greek Intermediate is the companion volume to New Testament Greek Primer. The Intermediate text reviews grammar, expands vocabulary, and exposes the student to more New Testament context. Grammar review intends to consolidate gains from the Primer, but deepens the discussion, adds more illustrative paradigms, and includes more syntax. Vocabulary acquisition expands the Primer's frequency base of 50 or more times down to a frequency of 15 or more times, including second aorist forms. This vocabulary acquisition is divided by frequency into seven vocabulary lists ready for seven vocabulary exams. The exercises have longer passages both to increase the student's translation stamina and to bring more contextualization to bear on the act of translation. In addition, the text includes informative illustrations and graphics, beautiful layout, full indexes, a glossary, charts, paradigms, and principal parts for even more usability. By the end of this text, the student is thoroughly prepared for Greek exegesis and advanced courses on Greek syntax.

An Easy Start to GreekFailure to master the basics of a language -- its spelling and phonics rules -- will cripple our progress in mastering the whole language. Yet many Greek grammars spend little time teaching the symbols and sounds of the Greek alphabet. Before we can learn a language, we must master its alphabet.This new edition of A Greek Alphabetarion has been thoroughly revised and reformatted to make it easier for parents to teach their children, and for older students to learn by themselves. A syllabary (practice blending consonants and vowels) and a chrestomathy (practice reading sample passages) have been added in this new edition.A Greek Alphabetarion teaches the Greek alphabet in alphabetical order, letter by letter, using a rhythmic cadence to aid the student?s memorization. Then, it teaches the alphabet in phonetic order, classifying each letter by its sound. A Greek Alphabetarion helps the student step-by-step to master reading Greek before moving on to study Greek grammar. Suitable for all ages, child through adult, in homeschools, private schools, colleges, and seminaries.Pronunciation CD included.

Biblical Exegesis of New Testament Greek: James is a workbook designed to guide the beginning- to intermediate-Greek student through the process of biblical exegesis of the text of James. The workbook leads the student through a comprehensive process of grammar review, translation, exegesis, and application of the Greek text. It is based on a deductive pedagogy for learning Greek but follows an inductive approach to grammar review. Students review grammatical, morphological, and syntactical issues arising in the text of James. The inductive grammar review references Gerald L. Stevens's New Testament Greek Primer as a companion grammar. Analysis of syntactical and exegetical information is presented from major lexicons, critical commentaries, and Greek grammars. Detailed footnotes conveniently present this valuable material. Key questions probe crucial exegetical and theological issues. Special vocabulary aids minimize lexical work, enabling students to focus on exegesis. An optional textual-criticism section is offered for intermediate students. Each lesson concludes with a practical application for ministry. Students are required to phrase a portion of the Greek text. They then construct a sermon or teaching outline based upon the phrasing exercise. Upon completing this book, students will have fifteen biblically based outlines from the Greek text for preaching or teaching purposes. Biblical Exegesis of New Testament Greek: James encourages students and pastors to sharpen their Greek skills and to use their Greek New Testaments in ministry . . . from translation to proclamation.

The New International Version (NIV) is today's most widely read, contemporary Bible translation. Its "dynamic equivalency" approach cuts to the heart of meaning to offer a Bible text that is understandable and highly readable. The Interlinear NIV Parallel New Testament in Greek and English directly relates Greek words in the Nestle's Greek text -- the text from which the NIC was derived--to their corresponding translation in the NIV. And since it requires little or no knowledge of Greek, it facilitates reading of the Greek New Testament. These advantages help you understand the Bible better. This proven study tool uses Alfred Marshall's interlinear English text -- the standard, widely used literal translation of the Nestle's Greek text, 21st edition. A generation of readers has relied on Marshall's renowned contribution to biblical study. The Interlinear NIV Parallel New Testament in Greek and English brings it to you in a parallel format that will bring new depth, perspective, and insight to your Bible studies.
