Greek Study Club Update

A couple of months ago, several of us began meeting on Tuesday evenings (from 6-7 p.m.) to study Greek. From time to time, someone asks me how the study club is going, so I thought I would give an update here.

Three people started meeting with us who had never studied Greek before. Four other people joined us who had already studied Greek. The new learners began by working their way through Learn to Read New Testament Greek by David Alan Black. Meanwhile, those who had already studied Greek agreed to being translating 2 John.

The beginners are slowly going through their beginning grammar, taking their time so that they understand the material. And those who already know Greek? While we’ve talked about 2 John, we’ve primarily enjoyed helping the new learners.

For example, last night, three of us took turns teaching the beginners how to parse verbs and translate simple sentences. It has been great fun teaching and learning together.

If you are interested in joining us, you can. Anyone can start at any time.

    Sounds like a beneficial time for everyone. Have the beginners set a goal for how long they will take in going through the grammar?

    Andy,

    Typically, we go through one chapter per week. However, when necessary, we’ve repeated a chapter to make sure that everyone understands the material.
