Pastors, students, and scholars not in the midst of language coursework often find it difficult to maintain their knowledge of biblical languages like Hebrew, Greek, and Latin. For those looking to do so in a meaningful but manageable way, this devotional offers 365 short daily readings, pairing an Old Testament passage in Hebrew and Greek with a corresponding New Testament passage in Greek and Latin. Lexical notes in English are included as a way of facilitating a comfortable reading experience that will build one’s confidence and ability in reading the Hebrew Bible, the Septuagint, the Greek New Testament, and the Latin Vulgate.
This is a uniquely valuable resource for reading short biblical texts in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin. The thoughtful selection and arrangement of the readings provide brief examples of connections within the biblical canon and the relation between the biblical writings and their early Greek and Latin translations. Thus, this book gives us an opportunity not only to practice our reading skills but also to engage the text in ways that exemplify the importance of working in the original languages.

This is a beautiful resource that will inspire love not only for three ancient languages but for Holy Scripture itself. The carefully selected passages resonate with the thematic continuities of the Bible, thus edifying the soul and the cerebral cortex.
