Studying New Testament Greek


To a large extent, the answer here is ‘See Ancient Greek’, or as Stephanie Winder from Edinburgh puts it:  For absolute beginners, we recommend the Beginning Ancient Greek course because at that level the grammar/ morphology is virtually identical.

Notwithstanding this, there tends to be a week of non-beginners’ NT Greek at the Edinburgh Summer School. There is also a weekend at Madingley Hall and an Intermediate-level course at City Lit.

Provision at Birkbeck seems to have entirely disappeared over the past couple of years.

I’ve plagiarised some literature references for NT Greek from Paul Parvis at Edinburgh here.  And I’ve posted my experiences of doing NT Greek in Edinburgh here (see under ‘Edinburgh’, strangely enough) and at Magingley Hall here.

The rest is silence or…’See Ancient Greek’.
