These five volumes offer something for every level of student of the Greek New Testament. Included are an introductory grammar by one of the leading scholars of the Koine Greek papyri and an introduction to ancient letter writing in the New Testament and the papyri. This collection also contains two volumes by George Milligan designed to introduce New Testament students to the importance of the papyri, and a scholarly publication of several important Greek magical papyri that help illuminate the language and historical background of the New Testament. With the Greek papyri, once again, being recognized as essential for understanding the milieu and language of the New Testament, these five classic volumes are as relevant today as they were when they were published in the early 20th century.

Beginner's Grammar of the Greek New Testament

  • Author: W. Hersey Davis
  • Publisher: Harper & Brothers Publishers
  • Publication Date: 1923
  • Pages: 280

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Professor Davis is a master of the papyri and, thus also, of the Koine generally, which the New Testament is written in. Thus, he provides beginning students with an account of the language of the New Testament on its own without reference to Classical Attic Greek.

Hardly a week goes by that I am not asked to recommend such a book to young ministers, to pastors, to laymen, to women, many of whom wish to learn how to read the Greek New Testament without the advantage of a teacher. Professor Davis starts the students right.

—A.T. Robertson, from the Introduction

William Hersey Davis was Associate Professor of New Testament Interpretation in the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky. He is the author of A Source Book of Interbiblical History and Greek Papyri of the First Century.

Here & There Among the Papyri

Few archaeological discoveries have affected biblical studies more than the discovery of papyri in the rubbish heaps of Egypt. Arguably second only to the Dead Sea Scrolls, these regular, day-to-day accounts of the life and experiences of the people of the Roman Empire have provided significant insight into the character of the Greek language when the New Testament was written, as well as the historical and cultural context of its authors. With literary text of Classical authors and Biblical writings of the Old and New Testaments, as well as everyday letters and documents, George Milligan carefully guides his readers through these various documents in accessible manner that brings their relevance even to first and second year Greek students.

George Milligan was born in 1860 in Scotland. The son of a Biblical studies professor, Milligan also became a prominent Biblical scholar and professor at Glasgow University. He is well-known for his contributions to Greek New Testament studies. He died in 1934.

Written before his introduction Here & There Among the Papyri, this little volume, nevertheless, functions as an effective next step for students interested in learning more about the papyri and their importance to biblical studies, by bringing within reach the papyri discoveries to a larger audience who might otherwise be intimidated by the large published volumes of the Oxyrhynchus Papyri or today's modern databases, such as papyri.info. Beginning with a general introduction and then moving through a collection of specific papyri texts, Milligan provides the full texts, their translation, and notes for readers to follow and understand important grammatical and lexical issues.

    These volumes are well worth collecting for the historical perspective they put on the discovery of papyri and the resulting revolution they made on NT lexicography and cultural insights to the nature of the Greek language in a non-literary or semi-literary Koine context. The two Milligan volumes especially make the papyri accessible to non-specialists, even those with minimal Greek. I'd buy the collection for these alone.
