Overview

This extremely useful volume is a comprehensive introduction to the grammar and vocabulary of the Greek of the New Testament, with extensive paradigms, examples, and explanations. / Porter, Reed, and O'Donnell's Fundamentals of New Testament Greek makes use of pedagogically sound and linguistically informed language-instruction techniques to provide the most effective textbook possible. The book introduces the individual elements of the Greek language according to their frequency of use in the New Testament so as to reinforce in students the elements that they will most often encounter. Every grammatical element is explained in sufficient detail — including illustrative examples — and is accompanied by useful information to describe its composition and analysis. The authors also include complete paradigms with plenty of examples, and significant vocabulary is introduced throughout the course of the volume. / Students who complete this text can engage in serious reading, translation, and understanding of the Greek New Testament, moving directly into Greek exegesis courses and more advanced Greek-language courses. Fundamentals of New Testament Greek: First Year will prove invaluable for gaining a thorough foundational understanding of New Testament Greek. It is bound to be a standard text for years to come.

Preface

This workbook, designed to accompany Fundamentals of New Testament Greek, by Stanley E. Porter, Jeffrey T. Reed, and Matthew Brook O'Donnell, features exercises that are grounded in the Greek language itself, reading exercises from the Greek New Testament that utilize the grammar and vocabulary learned, and aids to analysis and translation. This workbook is designed to reinforce the organization of the textbook and, in conjunction with it, to promote learning of the following elements:

the basic morphology (i.e., the various forms of verbs, nouns, pronouns, and adjectives) of the Greek New Testament the elementary syntax (i.e., the arrangement of words and phrases) of the Greek New Testament the basic vocabulary of the Greek New Testament in roughly its order of frequency.

In addition, we seek to:

illustrate the relevance of a knowledge of Greek for understanding the text of the New Testament develop an appreciation for serious and careful study of the Greek language so that the student can continue to read the Greek text of the New Testament with profit and delight.

This workbook of exercises is designed to support what is found in the corresponding chapters in the textbook. The variety of exercises includes creating various forms of a given word, parsing of the forms, substituting one form for another, and translating actual sentences, as well as an extended passage, from the Greek New Testament. (In some cases, the New Testament texts have been adjusted, based on the limitations of what students will know.) The parsing guide in the workbook reflects the same principles of parsing used in the textbook.

Review exercises after every five chapters draw upon the information from the previous chapters. These review exercises are based upon actual examinations that have been used by the authors and others who have used this textbook. The result is exercises that are designed to actually test and determine what the students are learning. Some teachers may wish to use these review exercises as models for their own examinations, while others may wish to assign them formally for students to complete as graded assignments. Others may wish to refer students to them to use as their own progress reports.

The thoroughness of this workbook and accompanying textbook allows teachers to use it in the way that they see best. Some may wish not to schedule certain chapters but to hold them over to a second- or intermediate-level Greek class. Others may wish to add further exercises or reading assignments.

In all cases, the goal of this course of instruction is to enhance the learning of Greek by the constant reinforcement of a variety of useful exercises and translational passages.
