Persistence Key To Learning Greek

One more post on Greek before I lose a lot of people. If you go to David Black’s web page, a professor, scholar, fence mender and the author of New Testament Greek, and scroll down to Wednesday, October 20 you’ll find a little article on how to “stick with it”.


  • Pray
  • Use an interlinear if you have to (considered anathema to many teachers)
  • He dropped out of his first Greek class!

    It’s the truth, Jeff. Keep going.

    I still can’t read all the NT yet — working on Acts, and then the epistles I don’t know. It will take me a few years to get a grip on it all. And then there’s the Septuagint. Let’s add another five years for that.

    Persistence is the key to learning any language. Things *will* eventually click. Not everyone who spoke Greek was as sophisticated as Aristotle, y’know. Everyday people can learn it, too.
