A Plan To Read the Greek New Testament in One Year

Someone just asked me on Facebook if I knew of any plans to read the Greek New Testament in a year. Well as a matter of fact, I do. I created such a plan a couple of years ago. For the most part, it tracks pretty closely with Lee Irons’ excellent schedule for reading the Greek New Testament in a year. My plan, however, varies a little bit. Because John’s writing is simpler Greek, my schedule goes through John’s Gospel at a faster pace than Irons’. As a result, there are no readings scheduled at the end of the year from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve. These open dates at the end can be used as catch-up days. The schedule is given in two formats below.

If you are serious about reading, you might consider Crossway’s reader’s edition of the Greek New Testament (pictured at top right). This volume contains the text of the UBS Greek New Testament. There are other reader’s editions of the Greek New Testament on the market, but I believe that this is the only UBS that is available with a premium leather cover. This edition features the Greek text above notes on every page. The notes include parsings of difficult verb forms as well as translations of Greek words occurring 30 times or less in the New Testament. A dictionary in the back defines words occurring 30 times or more. It’s available now from Amazon.com.

    Thanks so much, Dr. Burk. I’ve been really eager to read the GNT this year. I noticed Dan Wallace just posed a reading schedule that arranges it from easiest to most difficult. I anticipate it will be tremendously helpful.

    My Greek is so rusty that I need to start out small, and have plenty of help. Do you know of something that gives a verse or so a day in Greek, and also provides some help with the declensions/conjugations? That would truly be a HUGE help to someone like me.
