Digital Logos Edition

Logos Editions are fully connected to your library and Bible study tools.



The original Basics of Biblical Greek (BBG) offered instructors, students, self-learners, and home schoolers an entirely new, integrated approach to teaching and learning New Testament Greek. This third edition continues in that tradition, making use of feedback from professors, students, and home schooling moms and dads. BBG makes learning Greek a natural process, and shows from the start how an understanding of Greek helps in understanding the New Testament.

    had this in my library for a long time, finally taking the plunge, overall very good, some of the explanations for basic concepts, e.g. Nominative case etc is a little unclear, but that maybe just a communicative disconnect on my part. Very well laid out, i am looking forward to tackling my GNT or other writings
