Dr. Rob Plummer has put together an outstanding resource to help beginning Greek students read the Greek New Testament. It’s a website called “Daily Dose of Greek,” and it provides a schedule for reading and daily explanations of Greek syntax and grammar on the day’s reading. If you want help from a Southern Seminary master-teacher on the elements of Greek, you really should check out this site: Daily Dose of Greek.
I’ve been looking for something like this for YEARS to help me keep my rapidly decaying Greek skills. “Light on the Path” and “More Light on the Path” have been helpful, but not exactly what I’ve been looking for.
I’m excited to give this a try.

“Keep Your Greek” by Campbell is good too. I had about 30 hours of Greek training through college and grad & post-grad work, and there’s no substitute for consistency, and anyone who thinks they “get” Greek before 5-7 years of study… no, I don’t think they do.
I’m glad that Dr. Plumber is doing this. I have also found Dan Wallace’s reading plan to be very helpful: http://danielbwallace.com/2013/12/29/reading-through-the-greek-new-testament/
Thanks for this link Denny. Having decided that, even at 46 years old, it’s not too late to learn to read Biblical Greek, I’m currently working through Bill Mounce’s “Basics of Biblical Greek” course.
Just with today’s video I’ve already found the Daily Dose to be both helpful and encouraging. I’m pretty sure that the encouragement factor alone (I can follow what he’s doing and it’s making sense!) is at least as valuable as the direct help with the language.
