New Testament Greek: A Reading Course is a complete introductory course in Koine Greek that offers a clear, step-by-step approach to the fundamentals needed to read the New Testament in its original language. Concepts are presented in small, manageable increments, followed by short exercises that promote mastery. With a wealth of practice drills, readings, and conceptual questions, New Testament Greek: A Reading Course is ideal for many kinds of learners—including those in homeschool, college, and seminary, as well as autodidacts. Levels 1 and 2 of the student text are each accompanied by a teacher’s manual and a workbook with its own teacher’s manual.

This comprehensive program helps establish a strong foundation in biblical Greek. Each chapter logically and methodically builds on previously introduced material. New Testament Greek: A Reading Course does not assume any prior experience with Greek, or other inflected languages. Abundant practice, starting with the alphabet, allows learners to proceed at a pace appropriate for their goals and needs.

In its approach, New Testament Greek: A Reading Course firmly grounds itself in the Koine Greek of the Bible. Scope and sequence proceeds according to vocabulary and grammar most frequently used in the New Testament. From chapter 7 on, each chapter culminates in a set of carefully selected unadapted readings. Upon completing Level 1, learners will have read more than 100 verses from the Septuagint and more than 400 verses from the New Testament. An additional 44 verses are used to illustrate important concepts. An index of Greek citations makes it easy to locate a particular reference.

Level 1 of New Testament Greek: A Reading Course presents the following language topics:

  • the Greek alphabet and Greek orthographic conventions
  • the concept of noun case and declensions
  • noun declensions 1–3
  • use and forms of the definite article
