Lee Irons has put together a plan for reading through the Greek New Testament every year (HT: Jim Hamilton). He has some great suggestions, and I think you should take a look at them if you are in a position to take up this challenge.

On a related note, here are some other online resources that might be useful to all you Greek scholars out there.
- Greek New Testament Website – zhubert.com – Excellent website with a browsable, Web-based interface to the Greek New Testament. Passing the mouse over any word brings up an information box that parses and defines each word of the New Testament. Great tool.
- Greek New Testament Website – This website provides a browsable, Web-based interface to the Greek New Testament. Click on any word in the text, and the website will parse the word.
- Greek Fonts – The SP Legacy Fonts, developed by James Adair, are available on the Society of Biblical Literature’s website. At their website, you can download a Greek font (SPIonic) and Hebrew fonts (SPEzra and SPTiberian). The website contains instructions for downloading and installing the fonts. Click here for a keyboard map of the Greek font SPIonic.
The UBS Greek New Testament: A Readerâ€™s Edition has been a very helpful resource and has enabled me to read a chapter in the Greek NT every day. It has a really excellent font and just about the right amount of help in the footnotes.
It’s all Greek to me 😉

Thanks for this post Denny!
Lee Iron’s stuff looks helpful. I’m going to take this challenge. Thanks for the post.
Sounds like a challenging plan. I tried it once. I find when I try to read too much of the other language the reading becomes for me strange symbols for English words. But if I focus 3-5 verses at a time, I get something out of it. I guess this is for you guys who have several hours of time per day for study. Either that, or greek scholars.
