“It’s all Greek to me!” no longer has to be a phrase meaning “I don’t get it!”
English translations of the Scriptures are great, but there is nothing that can quite substitute for being able to read the New Testament in Greek. You see things the English doesn’t convey. Sometimes the way you interpret a text will be enlightened. Again, there really is no substitute.
Of course, you might be intimidated at the mere thought of trying to learn New Testament. If that’s the case, I understand.
But Dr. Robert Plummer of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary has done us a great favor by starting a new web site — Daily Dose of Greek. Each day he is going to go over one verse in Greek in a little two minute video. That’s going to help people like me, a pastor who hasn’t had a real Greek class in years, brush up on things.
But the best part for you is that Dr. Plummer has included twenty-five lectures that go along with Dr. David Alan Black’s Learn to Read the New Testament Greek, 3rd ed. (which you can get here, and even cheaper here for a Kindle).
The best part of the new web site is that all of the lectures and videos are FREE.
Let me repeat that. FREE.
In other words, you can learn how to read the New Testament in its original language. You can know God’s word better.
All it takes is a minimal monetary invest, and the effort to watch, read, and take it all in. It will be worth it. Check it out!
