Learn Greek

Learn Greek

This afternoon, I got an email from my good friend Dan (from “The Ekklesia in Southern Maine“). As he mentioned in his post “Weekly Update: 08.01.10“, Dan is contemplating starting a Greek study group. So, in his email, he was simply asking for suggestions and encouragement.

Similarly, my good friend and fellow world traveler Danny (from “learning…“) (not to be confused with Dan, which I did in a comment on Danny’s blog) is also planning a Greek study group when he moves to Virginia in a couple of weeks. (But, I’m still in denial about that move, so I don’t really want to talk about it.)

What about you? Why not start a Greek study group yourself? Even if no one joins but you, you can learn (or learn more) New Testament Greek. Begin with an introductory grammar, or if you know a little Greek, begin with a book like 1 John.

There are so many resources available (either for purchase or free online) to help anyone learn Greek. Also, if you get started and have some questions, send me an email… I’ll be glad to help.

If you know Greek or you’re learning Greek (either on your own or in school) leave me a comment. Also, if you’re interested in learning Greek – and are interested enough to put some work into it and study – leave me a comment also.

Let’s encourage one another as we study the New Testament together.

    cool! I would be interested in that…was ‘into that’ a while back… then got pregnant with child – which sucks out the brain’s ability to study Greek apparently…. would love to re-start

    I wrote a post a while back with a collection of the free resources I found when starting to learn Greek.

    I also wrote a flashcard app for Android devices to help learn Greek vocabulary (also includes Hebrew).

    Alan,

    Thanks for your help and encouragement in this. I sent out a blanket message on facebook last night and have already received four messages back from interested people! I was really surprised to see so many people who would like to do this. I’m really excited to get rolling with it!

    Very interested … have acquired many resources but it’s really hard to be the only one in a study “group” that is focused on language and communications skills!
