Hendrickson Publishers has done all the college and seminary Greek professors and many of their students a huge huge favor. One of their authors, Jonathan G. Kline, has created a two-year two-minutes-a-day review guide to both New Testament Greek and Old Testament Hebrew (there’s an Aramaic one too).
I focus here on the Greek and Hebrew volumes.
Each day is designed to be done in 2 minutes. Each day focuses on one Greek or Hebrew word. Day 147 has the Greek work oikos (house). Day 147 in the Hebrew book has malak (king). One word per day; 365 in a year; double that for two years.
Each day has one Greek sentence from the New Testament or one Hebrew sentence from the Hebrew Old Testament. Each day has a reminder of the vocabulary term from two previous days, which are kept in a good cycle for memory. Each day has each term in each sentence translated and broken into small bits for easier understanding.
2 minutes per day, friends, 2 minutes. Give them a try.
I highly recommend these especially for Beginning Greek students. A good way to build a basic habit of using your Greek or Hebrew.
Here’s why these volumes are both needed and highly recommended:
First, many who learned Greek or Hebrew have forgotten one or both languages.
Second, many who have forgotten their languages feel guilty or bad or something about it.
Third, most such persons don’t have time and don’t want to start all over again with a basic grammar.
Fourth, most don’t have time. Say that a few more times.
Sixth, you can order these volumes and no one will know.
Using these volumes, two minutes a day, will keep Greek or Hebrew in front of you.
Buy them, use them, and in a year or two you will rise up and call Jonathan Kline “blessed!”
