“It has been well said that the Greek language is ‘the most subtle and powerful language that ever flowed from the tongue of man.’” (source)

“Dr. J. H. Moulton wrote, ‘The New Testament writers had little idea that they were writing literature. The Holy Ghost spoke absolutely in the language of the people. . . . The very grammar and dictionary cry out against men who would allow the Scrip tures to appear in any other form than that ‘understanded of the people.’’ The language spoken throughout the Roman Empire in the first century of this era was Hellenistic Greek, otherwise called the Koiné, or the common dialect of the people.” (source)

“The study indeed is important as it opens up the mind of God to us as no translation could ever do. Patience and perseverance are required, but the student who has a few hours to spare in the course of a month will soon make progress, and find that he is experiencing a new delight in the intelligent reading of the actual words by which Men spake from God, being moved by the Holy Ghost’ (2 Pet. 1:21).” (source)

“ ‘B.C. and A.D.’ or ‘How the world was prepared for the Gospel,’” (source)

“feed first-hand upon the Word of God, and give themselves to its glorious ministry.” (source)

W. E. Vine

William Edwy Vine (1873–1949), commonly known as W. E. Vine, was an English biblical scholar, theologian, and writer, most famous for Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words.

Vine was born in 1873, in Blandford Forum, Dorset, England. His father ran the Mount Radford School, which moved to Exeter in 1875, and it was there that W.E. Vine was raised. He became a Christian at an early age and was baptized in the Brethren assembly in Fore Street, Exeter. At 17, Vine became a teacher at his father’s school, and then moved to Aberystwyth to study at the University College of Wales. He later completed his education at the University of London, receiving a BA and MA in Ancient Classics in 1906.

This responsibility inevitably meant writing tens of thousands of letters between local churches and the missionaries overseas. Many of the letters—beside being of a practical nature—involved answering theological questions. He also wrote for “Echoes of Service,” a monthly magazine that linked overseas missionaries with the Christians and churches at home by articles teaching the Bible and giving news that would stimulate prayer and support for the missionaries. He also wrote regular articles for other magazines, and many of his written works grew out of these articles. Vine dedicated himself to his work with missionaries and was firm in his doctrine and practice. He said,

In the mind of God the grand ultimate object of missionary activity is the planting of churches. . . . The Head of the church who gave His instructions to His Apostles . . . on record for us in the Scriptures, gave therein a body of truth and principles adapted to every age, generation and condition. The pattern is complete, and exhibits the divine wisdom in every part. Human tampering has only marred it in its working. . . . It is incumbent upon all who profess the Christian faith to respect the plainly revealed intentions of the Head of the church, instead of burdening it with doctrines and regulations of human fabrication.

He wrote this when he was an elder in the assembly at Manvers Hall, Bath, a position that he held for 40 years. He was diagnosed with heart disease in 1927, but lived until 1949.

    This textbook is less user-friendly and the approach more tedious than some of the newer resources by Mounce, so I can't recommend this as a primary study resource. However, I strongly recommend it as a secondary study resource to be used alongside other curricula. While Mounce has the better curriculum, Vine's will help you a lot as you're going through Mounce's book.
