Bible Study Greek

Welcome to our Bible Study Greek class. For more information, see our landing page. All the free resources teachers and students will need are listed in the Orientation lesson below.

The third edition of Greek for the Rest of Us is now available. The biggest changes are a significant reordering of the chapters and great homework. If you are using the second edition of the textbook or the videos, we strongly recommend that you attend this online class for the third edition, simply. You will find that with the new order of classes and the homework, you will be able to learn and use Bible Study Greek much more effectively. We have rearranged the vocabulary to evenly disperse it over chapters 3 – 13. You can download the vocabulary list here (January 2020).

Lesson Completed
20. Verbs (Tense)

It is time to get deeper into the five tenses in the indicative mood and the variations possible within each one, and also look at issues of voice. Like cases, tenses in Greek are more flexible than in English, and aspect plays a greater role than time.

In the second edition of Greek for the Rest of Us, this material was in chapters 16, 17, and 28.

No
21. Phrasing 103

Now it is time to venture in Greek phrasing. It is not as frightening as you might expect.

No
22. Verbs (Moods)

In this chapter we will look at the nonindicative moods (subjunctive, imperative) as well as the infinitive. Now that we are outside of the indicative, we can really see Greek aspect at work.

In the second edition of Greek for the Rest of Us, this material was in chapters 18 and 29.

23. Participles

Participles are "-ing" words that can function adjectivally and adverbially, the latter being especially flexible in meaning and accounting for many of the common differences among translations.

In the second edition of Greek for the Rest of Us, this material was in chapter 19.

No
24. Phrasing 104

In our final time together phrasing in Greek, we will look at one of the great theological passages in the Bible, Titus 2:11–14.

In the second edition of Greek for the Rest of Us, this material was in chapter 30.

No

No
26. Odds n’ Ends

In this final lesson, we will look at idioms, partial inflection, conditional sentences, and issues of word order.
