If you want to teach yourself Biblical Greek, I’ve outlined everything you need to know in this 5-part post series to help get you started.
The goal is to help you read through the New Testament in its original language, Koine Greek. Once you’ve gained proficiency reading through the New Testament, you can begin reading the Greek translation of the Old Testament (Septuagint/Old Greek) and early Christian writings including the Apostolic Fathers.
The post series below covers the overall process to start learning Greek, introductory grammars, Greek New Testaments, NT vocabulary memorization, and pronunciation options.
There’s no quick and easy solution to learning Biblical Greek. It takes hard work, time, and discipline, but can be attained if you are willing to put in the effort. I’ve found that in only a couple months time, you’ll begin to reap the benefits of your studies, motivating you to keep persevering. By a years time, if you’ve put in the time, you can be reading through the Greek New Testament.
Of course, learning Greek is not an end of itself, but helps us understand scriptures better so that we can glorify Jesus by correctly handling the word of God. So let’s get started!
