Required Textbooks

Greek readers

The primary benefit of these Reader's editions is the footnotes with basic dictionary glosses for less-common terms located at the bottom of each page. This can be immensely helpful, but students need to realize that these helps are off-limits for assignments in beginning and intermediate classes at BJU.

Also note that the Zondervan Reader's edition uses a slightly different text than the UBS4 that is the BJU Greek department's standard text.

Decker's Koine Greek Reader is not a reader's edition of the NT text, but instead presents graded readings from a variety of sources along with pedagogical helps.

Supplementary Works

The resources below provide supplementary help on the basics of Greek grammar and syntax.

Students in the BJU Greek program may benefit from occasionally consulting these sources, but should use them only as supplements rather than as a substitute for the required texts. These resources may be most beneficial for those pursuing self-study of Koine Greek.
