Checking answers in Duff's "The Elements of New Testament.."

Im excited to renew/restart my effort in 2015 to learn koine/ancient greek, I've started going through this book. I am wondering if anyone knows of a place that contains answers to the exercises. The back has answers for some exercises, but not all. For example, I just wrote out the answers for the ...

Re: Question about Living Koine materials

The idea of materials for learning biblical greek, in the same style that other modern languages, is relatively new. Over time I expect there to be more and more resources.

Re: Beginner greek/english interlinear?

Setting aside for the minute I don't know anything about the "NET" translation, that looks perfect. Putting the greek and english on alternating pages is a good idea as well. At this point I am really interested in getting something with greek OT and NT -- I plan to learn Hebrew at some po...

Re: Beginner greek/english interlinear?

With regards to parallel vs interlinear, As per the attached screenshot, Im not that interested in this style. The english is printed twice, firstly on the left, and secondly interspersed in the greek.

Re: Beginner greek/english interlinear?

Jacob, I remember hoping that I would subliminally pick up on Greek as I read in my interlinear but it didn't really seem to work. If you invest in anything it should be the LXX bound with the NA/27 or UBS4. Good point for people to consider. Just owning something doesn't help you learn something, ...

Beginner greek/english interlinear?

I would like to invest in a decent greek/english interlinear bible. Just wondering if anyone has some advice or recommendations - I've in the past gone from NASB, to NIV, and just recently NLT just to mix things up a bit. - Because I want to use it as my main bible, It ideally should have OT in some...

Re: Who does their main bible reading in Greek?

As "one of the rest of us" who also has many other commitments, I guess I am about to find out how quick it will take. Im opting for extreme optimism, heres hoping I can come back in a few months and say "Your wrong, you can achieve this in a few months." (:

Re: Who does their main bible reading in Greek?

I've been doing my main NT Bible reading in Greek since about 1979, having been trained in the traditional grammar-reading approach. It certainly is an attainable goal, if one works at it.
