For an Informed Love of God

Chapter 3 Vocabulary

We will not be learning nearly as many vocabulary words as you would in traditional Greek, but it is important to learn some. Otherwise, every word in your reverse interlinear will be unknown to you. We will start with some words that are mostly familiar as they come into English and I have used them as illustrations in class.

You will be learning words that occur 150 times or more in the Greek Testament. You will see these vocabulary words again in later chapters, but these are the words I used in this lesson, so I thought it would be fun to learn them now.

You should write out each word, say it, and memorize its meaning. Use the index to the left to see more details for every word, including pronunciation and its biblical context.
