This book focuses on reading the Greek text yet teaches enough syntax to enable students to effectively to deal with texts throughout the New Testament. The grammatical explanations are exceptionally clear and understandable, are based where possible on English usage, and are always related to what has been encountered in the reading. From the Publisher In American seminaries today, there is a very limited amount of time available to most students for language study. And yet, a working knowledge of the original language of the New Testament is imperative for informed exegesis of the biblical texts. Written with this difficult situation in mind, Read It in Greek offers a concise, one-semester introduction to the Greek language of the New Testament. Taking a unique, inductive approach to the study of Greek, this text focuses on reading the Greek-1 John is read through from beginning to end-yet also teaches enough syntax to enable students to interact with all of the New Testament. The book also integrates into the language course lessons in exegesis of the Greek text, resulting in immediate, usable skills that will allow students to look behind the facade of modern-language translations and to follow discussions in technical commentaries and other scholarly works. Students who go beyond the first semester to further study of the language will find it easy to refine the general concepts taught here. Those who do not will have begun reading the Greek New Testament and will have the resources necessary to continue doing so. Originally published as The New Testament Is in Greek: A Short Course for Exegetes, this volume continues to be one of the best resources available for quickly-yet effectively-introducing students to the reading of New Testament Greek.

Changes include 1) The readings of the newly discovered Papyri 117 127 have been incorporated into this edition, thereby opening up interesting perspectives particularly for Acts of the Apostles.

Following intensive preparatory work, the UBS Greek New Testament, the most widely used edition of the Greek New Testament worldwide, is now available in a revised and improved edition the UBS 5th Revised Edition (UBS 5). Changes include 1) The readings of the newly discovered Papyri 117 127 have been incorporated into this edition, thereby opening up interesting perspectives particularly for Acts of the Apostles. Besides, it is now displayed in the apparatus, where selected modern Bible translations (English, German, French, Spanish) are based on a variant reading rather than the principal version of the text. 2) A special focus of the revision was on the Catholic Epistles, in which the edition has been made consistent with the Second Edition of the Editio Critica Maior and the 28th Edition of the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece. This has led to more than 30 modifications in the reading text and resulted in a new selection of witnesses for the textual apparatus, in addition to modifications of the selection of apparatus units. 3) The Discourse Segmentation Apparatus has also undergone thorough revision. 4) Finally, the UBS 5 edition was typeset with a new, aesthetically appealing and readily legible Greek font.

Reading any ancient text in its original language can be a difficult chore, and even more so when it comes to the New Testament: the numerous translations, adapted from many sources, diverge wildly in language and vocabulary. So this classic reference work can be a valuable friend to the Bible scholar or student of ancient languages.Culled from "the latest and the best authorities," this 1893 dictionary-style work is a handy guide to all the potentially questionable words you'll encounter while reading the New Testament in the original Greek. From proper names to simple nouns to phrases for which there is no direct equivalence in English (what word did the Greeks use to describe someone "of whose descent there is no account"?), this is an essential volume for anyone who wants to read and genuinely understand the New Testament on its own terms.Late 19th-century editor and translator WILLIAM JAMES HICKIE is best remembered for his translation of Aristophanes' Clouds.

Author: Stanley E. Porter
Publisher: Baker Academic
In this volume, a leading expert brings readers up to date on the latest advances in New Testament Greek linguistics. Stanley Porter brings together a number of different studies of the Greek of the New Testament under three headings: texts and tools for analysis, approaching analysis, and doing analysis. He deals with a variety of New Testament texts, including the Synoptic Gospels, John, and Paul. This volume distills a senior scholar's expansive writings on various subjects, making it an essential book for scholars of New Testament Greek and a valuable supplemental textbook for New Testament Greek exegesis courses.
By the end of this book, students will have read over 200 lines of scripture and an equal amount of ancient literature from Homer to Aristotle.

Category: Foreign Language Study
The defining feature of this textbook is the treatment of classical and New Testament Greek as one language using primary sources. All the example sentences the students will translate are real Greek sentences, half of which are taken from classical literature and philosophy and half of which are directly from the New Testament. The advantage of this approach is that it highlights the linguistic, literary, and historical connections between classical Greece and early Christianity. Rather than having students memorize isolated tables and artificial sentences, Michael Boler spent years combing through thousands of pages of literature, philosophy, and scripture to find short, powerful sentences that not only teach the grammatical concepts in each chapter, but also contain seeds of wisdom that will spark wonder and discussion. Introduction to New Testament and Classical Greek is born out of classroom experience in a Catholic liberal arts university whose students were disappointed to be forced to choose between textbooks that taught classical Greek in isolation and ones that focused exclusively on the New Testament. By the end of this book, students will have read over 200 lines of scripture and an equal amount of ancient literature from Homer to Aristotle. They will also have the grammatical knowledge to continue to read classical and New Testament Greek. Each chapter contains a section at the end that delves deeply into the etymology and background of the words and passages encountered in the respective chapter. Professors will thus be able to use these chapters as a bridge to philosophical, theological, historical, and literary topics that will enrich the class.

Zerwick–Grosvenor has become, much to the surprise and gratification of its publishers, a minor classic in its genre. It is a brief verse-by-verse grammatical commentary on the Greek text of the entire New Testament. Originally published in Latin in the 1950s under the title Analysis philologica Novi Testamenti graeciwith Fr. Maximilian Zerwick as its sole author (Scripta Pontificii Instituti Biblici, 107; third edition, 1966), it was completely rewritten and translated into English by Zerwick and Miss Mary Grosvenor in the 1970s under the present title A Grammatical Analysis of the Greek New Testament (fifth, revised edition 2007 [published outside series]). (The word “edition” refers to relatively minor changes in the text over the years, changes mainly consisting in the correction of typographical errors.) The Analysis is intended for use by beginning students of New Testament Greek who have attained a certain competency in the use of the language. Thousands of copies have been sold in all parts of the world. The present “edition” is the first in the series “Subsidia Biblica”. The text of the 2007 edition is reproduced unchanged. The insertion in “Subsidia Biblica” is intended to make the work more accessible and to enlarge the text to facilitate consultation.

The Greek New Testament holds a special place in Christian thinking as the mouthpiece for God's revelation of the Gospel and of Jesus Christ. While there are a few trusted Greek texts currently in print, significant advances have been made in Greek translation studies of the New Testament since a standard text was last adopted in 1975. In this edition, an editorial team of biblical scholars connected to Tyndale House, Cambridge, have taken a rigorously philological approach to reviewing the standard text, looking afresh at spelling and paragraphing, and integrating recent findings about scribal practices and other advances in New Testament Greek. The result is a ground-breaking contribution to biblical scholarship. This edition is beautifully produced, fully sewn and bound with a grey imitation leather cover.

Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
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.
