From their decades of combined teaching experience, Andreas J. Köstenberger, Benjamin L. Merkle, and Robert L. Plummer have produced an ideal resource enabling students to improve their skills so they may properly read, exegete, and apply the Greek New Testament.
Designed for those with a basic knowledge of Greek, Going Deeper with New Testament Greek is a user-friendly textbook for intermediate Greek courses at the college or seminary level. In fifteen chapters, students learn Greek grammar and how to interpret the New Testament in a way that is accessible—and even fun.
Also included are chapters on the Greek language, textual criticism, verbal aspect, sentence diagramming, discourse analysis, word studies, and continuing with Greek.
Special features include:
- Practical examples illustrating how knowing the content of a given chapter can guide proper interpretation of Scripture.
- Practice sentences and vocabulary lists, including all the words that occur fifteen times or more in the New Testament.
- Selected texts from every New Testament author for students to translate along with detailed reading notes to guide interpretation of each text.
- Summary charts to help students review material, serving as a handy study guide and quick reference tool.
- Ancillary resources for the instructor and student (available soon at deepergreek.com) including quizzes, exams, PowerPoint presentations for each chapter, chapter summaries, exercises as separate documents, answer keys, and automated Moodle quizzes based on each chapter’s summary charts.
“Going Deeper with New Testament Greek is the best intermediate Greek textbook I have ever used in over twenty-five years of teaching Greek, primarily because it was written by and designed for those of us who labor in the classroom. . . .”
—J. Scott Duvall, professor of New Testament and J. C. and Mae Fuller Chair of Biblical Studies, Ouachita Baptist University
“. . . The book is a ‘one-stop shop’ so that everything students need to know in a second-year Greek course is contained here.”
—Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, professor of biblical theology, and associate dean of the school of theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“Going Deeper provides the teacher and student an intermediate grammar designed for their specific needs. While it can function as a reference grammar, it works best as a book to be read from cover to cover.”
—William Mounce, president, BiblicalTraining.org
“Going Deeper with New Testament Greek is certain to become a standard among intermediate Greek grammars. . . . It is up to date, built for the classroom, and aimed at careful exegesis of the Greek New Testament. While I differ on some points, it is my first choice for the classroom.”
—Constantine R. Campbell, associate professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
