This workbook teaches the basics of New Testament Greek, and shows how to use it for exegesis. Instead of memorizing hundreds of verb forms and a long list of vocabulary, it teaches how to use the tools and gives enough basic information to get started. Instead of learning Greek by itself, it teaches the steps of exegesis, one at a time, and follows each step with the Greek that is needed to do it. No other study guide is needed. There are exercises for each lesson, and an answer guide at the back of the book.
We recommend studying the book with a pastor or mentor, and in groups if possible.
We recommend that the mentor measure the student's progress by evaluating his finished exegesis project. An exam on the Greek covered in the book is also available by contacting Third Millennium Ministries: firstname.lastname@example.org

Review on Amazon.com
"I do not know too many serious students of the Bible who do not wish, at one time or another, that they were proficient at Greek (or more proficient at Greek). But few of us have had time or opportunity to study the language in a formal, academic setting. Basic Greek and Exegesis ...is a newly-published attempt to increase the accessibility of the Greek language. ...Because some meaning is always and inevitably lost in translation, exegesis can best be done by looking to and understanding the original language. This book attempts to span the gap between the desire to do serious exegesis and the necessity of having some knowledge of the Greek language.
