This book focuses on reading the Greek text yet teaches enough syntax to enable students to effectively to deal with texts throughout the New Testament. The grammatical explanations are exceptionally clear and understandable, are based where possible on English usage, and are always related to what has been encountered in the reading. From the Publisher In American seminaries today, there is a very limited amount of time available to most students for language study. And yet, a working knowledge of the original language of the New Testament is imperative for informed exegesis of the biblical texts. Written with this difficult situation in mind, Read It in Greek offers a concise, one-semester introduction to the Greek language of the New Testament. Taking a unique, inductive approach to the study of Greek, this text focuses on reading the Greek-1 John is read through from beginning to end-yet also teaches enough syntax to enable students to interact with all of the New Testament. The book also integrates into the language course lessons in exegesis of the Greek text, resulting in immediate, usable skills that will allow students to look behind the facade of modern-language translations and to follow discussions in technical commentaries and other scholarly works. Students who go beyond the first semester to further study of the language will find it easy to refine the general concepts taught here. Those who do not will have begun reading the Greek New Testament and will have the resources necessary to continue doing so. Originally published as The New Testament Is in Greek: A Short Course for Exegetes, this volume continues to be one of the best resources available for quickly-yet effectively-introducing students to the reading of New Testament Greek.

"The introduction of the Erasmian pronunciation in 1528 had two dire consequences: Greek was divided into ancient and modern - a division that led to the neglect of the later periods of the language, and the pronunciation applied made impossible the detection of many communicatory aspects and obscured many text-critical problems. The author argues for the unity of the Greek language from Mycenaean times to the present. The New Testament appears during the time of transition (335 B.C. - A.D. 565) from ancient to Modern Greek. Morphological and syntactical analysis shows that at many important points the New Testament can be elucidated by later Greek, up to Neohellenic. Contents include: Introduction, The unity and evolution of the Greek language, The relevance of later Greek for the Exegesis of the New Testament, The transition from Attic to Neohellenic in Morphology and the New Testament, Syntactical Developments, The significance of the developments for the exegesis of the New Testament, The historical Greek pronunciation and the dichotomy of the language, The acoustic dimension in communication, The impact of the historical Greek pronunciation on the transmission of the New Testament text, Summary and Conclusions."

The fundamental distinctive of this textbook is its spiral, rather than linear, methodology of teaching the Greek language. The student is introduced to all the essential grammar quite rapidly in order to develop an overall understanding of the structure of the language. The grammatical details, which cannot be fully mastered in the initial overview, are revisited in succeeding lessons to fill in gaps of understanding and to build memory. Much time is devoted to reading and analyzing Greek text; thus reinforcing grammatical learning with practical experience. This stands in contrast to the linear method, found in most Greek textbooks, which takes a slower approach by spreading exposure to the grammar over the whole learning period, but then suffers from a lack of sufficient practise in Greek text. The structure of this textbook needs to be understood from the perspective of its teaching methodology. In addition to the spiral methodology, this textbook offers a number of useful paedogogical features. * Clear advice on the most important learning at every stage. * Immediate use of the Greek New Testament text. * Focus on transfer of learning rather than excessive memorization. * Explanation of English grammar at relevant points. * Special techniques and descriptions to aid learning. * Vocabulary learning based on word frequency. * Adaptability to various course structures. This book offers a fresh methodology to teaching Greek, born of much experience and success in the classroom. It blends deductive and inductive instruction together efficiently to make learning Greek manageable and enjoyable.

THE NEW TESTAMENT was written in Koine Greek during the first century AD. From the time of its original revelation, handwritten copies continually were prepared in order tomaintain and preserve that original text into the modern era. All copies made prior to the invention of movable-type printing were made by hand, resulting in various scribal alterations, most of these being of a minor nature. Although the autographs no longer exist and no two manuscript copies are completely identical, sufficient evidence exists by which one can produce an accurate representation of the original text by comparing and evaluating the overall manuscript consensus. Robinson and Pierpont have taken the utmost care in preparing that text for this edition.Various other methods for restoration of the original NT text have fallen short of their goal, in part due to methodological subjectivity, and in part to a presuppositional bias against the claims of the Byzantine Textform. The texts created under such a bias tend to be based on only a handful of favored manuscripts, and fail to consider all transmissional factors in the preservation of the original text. As a result, the modern eclectic texts tend to preserve more of a caricature than the essence of the originals.In contrast, Robinson and Pierpont have applied many of the same methods of textual criticism to their task, but without the anti-Byzantine bias. Their method of "reasoned transmissionalism" is based on the wider scope of manuscript transmission throughout history. The preface of this edition explains the basic method by which the present editors have arrived at their basic text. The appendix contains Robinson's essay, "The Case for Byzantine Priority," which presents a rationale for and defense of the theory and methodology that has been applied in the preparation of this edition.
