Praise for the Print Edition

Greek is taught here with thoroughness and a meticulous concern for detail that cuts no corners while introducing the student imaginatively and with relevance to the tools of the trade. The questions in the workbook are stimulating and well-chosen. Throughout, Stanley Porter and his associates show a love of the language that regards Greek not as a chore to be endured but as an art to be enjoyed. They are masters of the subject and have produced an admirable and distinctive teaching tool, enhanced by an excellent workbook.

Anthony C. Thiselton, emeritus professor of Christian theology in residence, University of Nottingham

The great strengths of these books are their coherence, comprehensiveness, knowledge of contemporary linguistics (it is most encouraging to see verbal aspect theory laid down as part of the foundation), the wide-ranging use of Greek drawn from texts instead of artificially created snippets, and the fine integration of the workbook with the textbook. Highly recommended.

D. A. Carson, research professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Stanley Porter and his colleagues bring to this textbook and workbook decades of studying and teaching ancient Greek. The authors are well known for their expertise in grammar, syntax, linguistics, and discourse analysis. Fundamentals of New Testament Greek offers concise definitions and explanations (which reflect Greek study in its most current form), numerous and well-chosen paradigms, vocabulary well beyond what is found in other introductory grammars, and exercises that are pedagogically sound and draw students into the Greek of the New Testament . . . Teachers will find Porter’s Fundamentals a pleasure to use; students will be grateful that their teacher adopted it.

Craig A. Evans, Payzant Distinguished Professor of New Testament and director of the graduate program, Acadia Divinity College

“We know that this book works and will take students to a level not often achieved through other beginning textbooks.” So say Stanley Porter and his coauthors in the preface to their Fundamentals of New Testament Greek—an ambitious, comprehensive introduction to the grammar and vocabulary of the Greek New Testament.

This first-year Greek textbook discusses all the forms and basic syntax of Koine Greek, complete with extensive paradigms, examples, and explanations. Porter, Reed, and O’Donnell’s Fundamentals of New Testament Greek features pedagogically sound and linguistically informed techniques of language instruction. The volume introduces the individual words and grammatical details of Greek, sensitive to their frequency of use in the New Testament, reinforcing for students the elements that they will most often encounter. Grammatical forms, including the less common ones, are analyzed and explained in detail, often with illustrative examples from the Greek New Testament. The authors include complete paradigms and give numerous examples; the vocabulary list includes nearly one thousand words, which are introduced throughout the book’s 30 chapters.

Students who complete this text will be able to move directly into Greek exegesis courses and more advanced Greek-language courses. Fundamentals of New Testament Greek will prove invaluable for gaining a thorough foundational understanding of New Testament Greek, including full exposure to the formation, accenting, and semantics of its complex verbal system.
