We are headed to Australia for two weeks; Bill is teaching at Moore Theological College. Physical orders will not be shipped until September 25. If you order a flashdrive, we will send you a link to where you can download the videos.

Bill Mounce

Bill is the founder and President of BiblicalTraining.org, serves on the Committee for Bible Translation (which is responsible for the NIV translation of the Bible), and has written the best-selling biblical Greek textbook, Basics of Biblical Greek, and many other Greek resources. He speaks and blogs regularly on issues relating to trusting the Bible, the Pastoral Epistles (1 and 2 Timothy, and Titus), Greek and issues of spiritual growth.

The Professor to the Rescue

Why do we study Greek as a dead language? We know that the more senses we employ in learning any language, the easier it is.

The Professor is your friend. Throughout our educational classes on Greek, the Professor will be teaching you fun things to say in Greek like “Hello,” “Goodbye,” how to count to ten, “What is your name?” and much more.

If the Professor is not yet in the chapter you are studying, he will be very soon. He will also be teaching you vocabulary (see an example).


πρωΐ means “early (in the morning)” (adverb).

“Very πρωΐ, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb” (Mark 16:2).

Adverb: πρωί (prōi), GK G4745 (S G4404), 12x. Because prōi can designate any time covered in the fourth watch (from 3:00 to 6:00 a.m.), sometimes it refers to very early in the morning, for which we have the phrase “the crack of dawn” (Mk. 13:35; 15:1; 16:2; Jn. 18:28).

The dictionary entry is from my book, Mounce’s Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, which can be purchased in print ( Amazon | ChristianBook.com ) and electronic ( Logos | Accordance | Olive Tree ) form.
