Re: A Graded Reader keyed to Duff's Grammar

The Greek Font Society has a selection of very nice free fonts from various periods that support polytonic. Many of them are Open Font License. Here's a link: https://www.greekfontsociety-gfs.gr/typefaces They even have an uncial font that resembles that used in manuscripts.

Re: Greek Byzantine New Testament MP3

Well, it says the LXX audio is included, but when you download it (I did, just now) and open the package, only the GNT is there. Hopefully they will update the package to include the LXX at some point. Mark Cain has an ongoing project to make the Hebrew OT available for listening while you read at h...

Re: Editors Needed for Greek Lexicon

Abbott-Smith is old, but good, and still helpful. I use it quite a bit. Some years ago I found it online for download in an HTML edition. It opens in your web browser. It is probably available now in additional digital formats. A-S focuses on the GNT, but also covers some Septuagint vocab. Like BAGD...

Re: Editors Needed for Greek Lexicon

For that matter, a Biblical Hebrew to Biblical Hebrew lexicon/glossary would be helpful also. I've started on what could be a small step toward such a work. It's a BH to BH vocabulary for the book of Jonah. I've done the first five verses (first draft) and hope to return to the project later this ye...

Re: Editors Needed for Greek Lexicon

Despite the difficulties/challenges in doing it well, I agree with Randall that we need such a Koine to Koine tool. There is no reason why both editions could not be done and published, Koine to Koine and Koine to English, Koine to other languages. It's all in the willingness and commitment people h...

Re: Gaining Proficiency...

There is also this helpful thread on asking questions in Koine, in the Ancient Greek Best Practices forum (Google Groups): https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic ... rziPlWeu7E. Our own Paul Nitz put it together. εργον αγαθον, Σαυλε!

Re: Gaining Proficiency...

There are two great books by Zondervan with devotions on the Greek NT and the Hebrew Bible. These also have helpful insights on the grammar and vocabulary of the passages discussed. I bought these in 2018 at Christmas and used them last year. I benefited from them a great deal. Here's a link to the ...

Re: Gaining Proficiency...

There are some good recently published vocabulary guides that give the key original-language vocabulary for each Biblical book. There are ones for the Greek NT, the Septuagint, and the Hebrew Bible. Here's a link to the listing on Amazon for the NT one: https://tinyurl.com/t8m4bzz . To see the LXX a...

Re: Gaining Proficiency...

Josh, you've made a great start! And I commend you for learning Hebrew as well as Greek. Few souls are brave/open-minded/curious/disciplined enough to attempt both. As one who is doing so myself, I fully appreciate the difficulties-and the great rewards. I would add to Barry and Paul's advice that y...
