The Greek Bible society allows you to download from the general site of the Bible Society

that so far has only the NT.
I assume that is an ongoing process, and soon the other parts that now are available in the Greek site would also be available.


I snagged their GNT a long time ago, and I'm using it very happily in my daily reading. Very clear, very good phrasing.

Nik - Thanks much for that description. I have tried in vain to find early Christian liturgies on the web. My thought was to make Greek liturgy a part of my devotional life. Any liturgy would do, but what I would especially excited to find is order of Matins in Koine.

a) Do you know of Koine liturgies I can get on the Internet?
b) Are the liturgies you used "normal" Koine, or were they modified over the ages?

Dear Paul

all Greek liturgical texts can be found in this site
http://analogion.gr/glt/
including liturgies, and several cases allows you to hear the written part.
The text are found at the end of the list as:
ΛΕΙΤΟΥΡΓΙΕΣ
Χρυσοστόμου Καθ' ημέραν
Χρυσοστόμου Κυριακή
Χρυσοστόμου Κυριακή μετά Διακόνου
Βασιλείου - Προηγιασμένη
Ιακώβου

Now that there is YouTube, not only you can hear it, but you can also see it.
The oldest one is the Liturgy of st. James Ἰακώβου τοῦ ἀδελφοθέου who was the first bishop of Jerusalem.
in a complete form in three parts from the city of Patrae

b) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMhmB1KBe-w&feature=relmfu
c) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5_XLrmaniE&feature=channel&list=UL

and from Verroia

This is performed only once a year.

The Liturgy of st. Basil as it was performed on Great Thursday, which is the second before the last of the year,

On Great Thursday every ten years in Constantinople is performed the sanctification of the Holy Myrrh

and this one is from the 2012 sanctification.

Also within a Liturgy ordinations are performed, and here is the ordination of the Metropolitan of Bursa or Proussa.

During the period of Lend and Holy Week except Sundays the Liturgy of pre-sanctified Gifts is performed.

This liturgy contains most of biblical readings than all the others, that they change every time, in that way each day of its performance has different readings.

Searching the youtube in Greek you can find many, I just gave you here few as an example.

I hope all that may be helpful.
