I was a member of B-Greek several years ago (late 90's ?). I now run a website for popular consumption (CWP Classroom) which encourages "responsible, contextual, and conversational" reading of the NT. It is not our goal to create scholars; but it is a goal to encourage a respect for conversation with scholars and their work, including some basic appreciation and use for the Greek NT and Greek OT.

Welcome. As one who has seen plenty of decontextualized, uninformed, and scholar-ignoring Bible studies, even on Bible College campus where students all have to take a class on hermeneutics/exegesis, I must say I wish your approach was how all Bible studies could be done.

I appreciate that. We focus more on how texts are approached than on what theological conclusions are reached. It has been interesting to see the wide range of response to the effort. I've been working Greek into this more and more and have found a ready audience . . . so far.
