New Testament Greek for Beginners, 2nd ed.
Machen, J. Gresham & Dan G. McCartney
This textbook is intended primarily for students who are beginning the study of the Greek Testament either without any previous acquaintance with the Greek language or with an acquaintance so imperfect that a renewed course of elementary instruction is needed. This revision, over seventy-five years since the first edition was published, retains much of the character and organization of the first edition while accommodating students today who lack an understanding of Latin and grammar necessary for fully comprehending the original edition.
New to This Edition:
- Glossary of basic grammatical and linguistic terms -- Helps students recognize and understand frequently used terms and cross-reference with word roots
- Charts and figures on grammar -- Includes a list of prepositions, a chart of vowel contractions, a regular verb formation chart, and several new paradigms
- Word list of 250 terms -- Highlights the 250 words appearing most frequently in the Greek New Testament, prepared by Professor Bruce M. Metzger for this new edition
- Updated style -- For example, substitutes 'you' for 'thee' and 'thou', in language familiar to today's students
