Taking a primarily deductive approach to teaching Biblical Greek, this volume assumes that students will have no prior knowledge in Greek. Divided into 32 separate lessons, each containing a generous number of exercises, the text leads students from the Greek alphabet to a working understanding of the language of the Bible.
Special features of this grammar:
- An abundance of exercises: Each lesson includes practice sentences taken from the Septuagint and the New Testament, as well as sentences composed by the author. Exercises in English-to-Greek translation are also included.
- Concise but accurate grammatical explanations: Great care has been taken to insure that grammatical explanations are clear, correct, and succinct. The Greek participle also receives a fuller treatment than is usual.
- A natural order of presentation: Material is presented according to the natural structure of Greek and the traditional terminology of grammarians. Declensions and principal parts, for example, are presented in numerical order.
- Helpful appendixes for quick reference: Included at the back of the book are the Greek paradigms, Greek-to-English vocabulary, English-to-Greek vocabulary, and a bibliography for further study.
Designed to provide students with the skills necessary to handle biblical Greek, this volume will become the text of choice for colleges and seminaries.
