Want to learn Greek

I was reading Jeff’s blog where he stated that one of his goals is to “learn Greek well enough to use a Greek Reader’s NT”.  Shortly after reading that I came across Concordia Seminary that has all of it’s video lectures on Elementary Greek.  They are available at iTuneU Concordia Seminary.

You can also access them here through the Concordia Seminary RSS feed.  Been meaning to post this but got a bit busy.  Now you have yet another source to learn Greek.

    • Samantha, it can be tuff, but not impossible 😉 I am no genius and I have managed to learn on my some basic Greek. I do think that with some serious discipline and the right books, along with some good lectures I really do think I can get even better at it.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Samantha, if I may call you that, I know you didn’t ask for advice, but what you learn from can make a big difference. I started out with Croy, which is good, but switched to Black and things are going better. Fortunately I got a review copy of the Black. I also looked at the popular Mounce and it was too helter skelter for me.

    I was also told to keep at it which is easier said than done and easier the longer you’ve been doing it.

    Sorry for the unsolicited advice. I know you may have no intention of returning to it. Reading our Bibles in English is just fine.

    Thanks for the resource Robert. The more the better.

    • Jeff, no problem. These are videos which is nicer, I think. I have not looked at them but he does have a chalk board behind him so if he does write stuff you can still follow along. Plus this is filmed during a live class so that should be helpful as well.

  2. James Voelz is a great instructor. He’s pretty funny and does a good job of communicating with his listeners. You’ll probably need his book though if you want to go through the course. I’ve thought about getting it but I haven’t been that interested in learning Koine in a while. Also check out his class on hermeneutics. I watched all of them and plan on going through them again since I now have the text book he wrote and uses.

    • Bryan, they do look good, but I don’t have the time to go through them at the moment. I am sure that someone has already posted these before, but I couldn’t remember, so I thought what the heck just post it. It’s good to hear from someone that has gone through them, now I feel even better recommending them.
