Greetings from the Green Mountains

Post by Chandler Poling »


I'm new to the forum, and wanted to introduce myself. A lifetime goal has been to read through the Hebrew Bible and New Testament in the original languages. After years of procrastination, I recently got to work on completing this goal. I try to ready a bit every day. I started with the Gospel of John, and have been getting through about 15-20 verses per day.

It's been many years since my initial studies of Koine Greek, so I'm a bit rusty. Life happened and my academic aspirations were derailed, but my love of studying Greek and Hebrew remained. My day job is assisting people who are in housing crisis at a Community Action agency. My night job is being a dad and husband, and trying to squeeze in some time to read Greek each day.
