Read through the Greek NT in a Year

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    The UBS Greek New Testament: A Reader’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.

    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.
