Description

New Testament Greek Intermediate is the companion volume to New Testament Greek Primer. The Intermediate text reviews grammar, expands vocabulary, and exposes the student to more New Testament context.

The grammar review will help consolidate the student’s knowledge by deepening the discussion, adding more illustrative paradigms and introducing new syntax. New vocabulary is explained and divided by frequency into seven vocabulary lists for the respective vocabulary exams. New exercises challenge the students and increase their fluency in translation. In addition, the text includes informative illustrations and graphics, thoughtful layout, full indexes, a glossary, charts and new paradigms.

By the end of this course, the student is thoroughly prepared for Greek exegesis and advanced courses on Greek syntax.

… a readable, comprehensive overview of Greek grammar arranged topically, utilizing the latest research in linguistics, and there are ample exercises drawn from biblical texts marked by Stevens’ pedagogical deftness. I highly recommend this text for students and teachers alike.

This student-friendly grammar masterfully guides students beyond basic Greek proficiency to translating an entire New Testament book. Students will welcome Stevens’ clarity of presentation and his ability to engage them in the text.
