Greek for Bible Readers

The next step

By David Alan Black

Bible Review

Over the past two and a half years, we have covered some of the elements of New Testament Greek and have laid a foundation for reading the Greek New Testament. As we end our study together in these pages, you should plan to continue to use the skills you have gained if you wish to retain them. Following are some resources that will help you do this. Most are standard texts that have served Greek students for several years. Some may only be available in libraries or used-book stores, but most are still in print.


A concordance is an alphabetically arranged index of Scripture words. W. F. Moulton and A. S. Geden’s A Concordance to the Greek Testament, fifth edition (Edinburgh: T & T Clark, 1897), is still very useful, even though it is based on an outdated Greek text. Better still is the Konkordanz zum Novum Testamentum Graece, edited by H. Bachmann and W. A. Slaby (Berlin: de Gruyter, 1987), which includes a generous amount of text for each entry and is based on the Nestle-Aland 26th edition of the Greek New Testament and on the United Bible Societies third (corrected) edition (UBS3).
