Greek Alphabet Chalkboard

Get Ahead Summer Greek 2020 – The Alphabet

I’m the first to admit the Greek this fall at seminary has me more than a little worried.  Until just a few years ago, Koine Greek (New Testament Greek) was taught as a summer intensive prior to the first year of seminary.  That doesn’t happen anymore.

So, I got the text and decided to get a jump on it this summer.

If you assumed that I haven’t studied a foreign language in many years (decades!), then you nailed it.  And this language includes an entirely new alphabet – even more challenging.

So I reached out to a few fellow incoming seminarians, and it turns out I’m not alone.

Later this week, we’ll have our first online study group, focusing on the Koine alphabet. This little video should prove helpful.  It’ll be on a loop in my workspace for the next little while. Thank you Danny Zacharias!
