Reading the Gospel of St. Mark in Greek: A Beginning empowers students to read and appreciate the Gospel of Mark and biblical Greek as a whole. The introduction presents a summary description of the alphabet, pronunciation, accents, and grammar, making simple and brief comparisons between English and Greek. The main body of the book includes the Greek text, running vocabulary, and notes on each page. The format allows for rapid reading, comprehension, and retention. Each new word is repeated fifteen times in the running vocabulary. Any words not mastered after this can be found in the vocabulary list in the back. This text is inclusive and allows a reader to enjoy the Greek language and the Gospel of Mark without the need for a separate dictionary or grammar book.
