To all my Greek students past, present, and future. I thought you would really enjoy this one. Some guys at BIOLA have produced a video about Bible students who have to go through grueling semesters of learning Koine Greek (Koine means “common” and it refers to the popular form of Greek spoken at the time of the New Testament). Here are my favorite lines:
1. Â Â Â Â “Î»á½³Î³Î¿Î¼Î±Î¹ á¼Î³á½½,” which sounds like “leggo my eggo”
2.Â Â Â Â “Bill Mounce gonna make you bounce . . . Daniel Wallace”
I am looking forward to teaching my Greek 4 class this semester, but I promise there will be no rapping . . . well, maybe a little.
