Overview

For serious theological study you need to be able to recognize the original words of the New Testament since they regularly appear in commentaries and lexicons. This course will make you feel at ease when you encounter such references by teaching you the Greek alphabet and showing you how to pronounce whole words. To help you master the Greek alphabet, each lesson has an interactive activity section with various experiential exercises, such as game-type drills, an alphabet song, and quizzes. There are also reference sections with additional information and materials such as printable charts. This course has two versions that teach different pronunciation systems: Koine (GK091) and Erasmian (GK092). Both versions are bundled together so you can compare them and decide which you want to learn. Whether you are just curious about the alphabet or are planning to study biblical Greek, this course provides a fantastic foundation for recognizing Greek letters and words so you can work with all of the words the Lord has preserved for us in the New Testament.
