Overview

Whether you want to learn Greek and Hebrew for the first time or are simply looking for a refresher, Michael Heiser and H. Daniel Zacharias are excellent guides. With this tools-based approach, you’ll learn the terminology, tools, and methods needed to interpret words and passages of Scripture—without memorization.

  • Focused on exegesis. Rather than having you memorize vocabulary or translate phrases into English, lessons focus on using Greek and Hebrew to interpret the meaning of the text. Learn grammatical terms and concepts, proper methods for doing word studies, and common mistakes to avoid.
  • Equipping you with tools. Video tutorials show you how to use the advanced language tools in Logos. You’ll also learn how to use dictionaries and lexicons, reverse interlinears, commentaries, and more.
  • Connected to your library. Each course is transcribed and becomes a searchable Logos resource connected to grammars, reverse interlinears, and other resources in your library. Read along as you watch the lectures and jump to recommended readings with a click.
  • Learning on your schedule. Watch 5–10-minute lectures from your mobile device or computer, whenever your schedule allows. Set your own pace, and then track your progress with quizzes and exams. These courses contain over 20 hours of lectures and demonstrations that will take you all the way from understanding the basics to performing practical advanced research techniques.

    Biblical Greek Made Simple: All the Basics in One Semester

    • Author: H. Daniel Zacharias
    • Publisher: Lexham Press
    • Publication Date: 2018
    • Pages: 360
    • Format: Logos Digital

    Diligent study of God’s Word involves engaging with it in the language it was written.

    Learning Greek can be a challenging experience for seminary students but it is a critical piece of their education. Engaging with the Bible in its original language will lead to deeper understanding, new insights, and provide tools to enter into the conversation surrounding God’s Word.

    Biblical Greek Made Simple is a one-semester textbook that teaches the basics of biblical Greek. Designed with the modern student and curriculum in mind, this grammar introduces all the essential elements of biblical Greek while also utilizing the tools and features of Logos Bible Software to help retain and enhance knowledge of Greek. Each chapter includes exercises tailored to its contents as well as additional teaching material for further advancement. Daniel Zacharias provides a solid overview of the entire biblical Greek system, while challenging students to understand how this ancient language is relevant to meaning and translation.

    Danny Zacharias is a master teacher of elementary Greek. I'm delighted to see in this new book, Biblical Greek Made Simple, a coalescence of Dr. Zacharias's scholarly knowledge, pedagogical skill, and technological competence. As many colleges and seminaries already employ Logos Bible Software in the teaching of Greek, this textbook, which integrates learning to use the Logos software alongside a more traditional teaching approach, will prove invaluable.

    —Robert L. Plummer, professor of New Testament interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

    Why not try teaching or learning Greek as though Bible software was our friend? This is exactly what Danny Zacharias does in this highly innovative approach to acquiring competency in the language of the New Testament and Septuagint. His visual approach to the formation of Greek words is splendid and discussions of grammar and syntax focus well on those facets that are most important for interpretation. I am deeply impressed both by the detailed lesson plans in every chapter that allow for closely guided self-study and the links to professional-quality instructional videos on every aspect of Greek and the use of Logos that make of this book a virtual course in the language in and of itself. Seminary professors and motivated individual learners alike will want to give this a close look.

    —David A. deSilva, Trustees' Distinguished Professor of New Testament and Greek, Ashland Theological Seminary

    This is a well-organized, thoughtful, and up-to-date approach to learning foundational elements of New Testament Greek. It is an interactive guide, not a dull-and-distant textbook. It makes strategic use of Logos Bible Software to enhance the learning process. I welcome its addition to the very short list of good first-semester guides to beginning the life-long process of learning to read the New Testament in its original language.

    —Robert W. Yarbrough, professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary
