One of my greatest frustrations as a Professor of New Testament Greek is watching students learn Greek reasonably well and then head off to post-graduation “language apostasy.” Most of these students do not want to abandon Greek, but the busyness of ministry crowds out long-term goals.
With my collaborator Brad Clark, I recently started www.dailydoseofgreek.com to help former students and pastors revive their Greek and read it daily. By submitting their email address at the website, anyone can receive a free daily email with a link to a two-minute Greek “screencast.” In these daily videos, the viewer will see a Greek verse circled, highlighted, etc. as I comment on the text. So far, we have nearly 4,000 persons signed up, with visitors from 75 different countries.
The website also has two other portals featuring 26 basic introductory videos and various Greek resources.
Please take a look at the site, and if you share our passion to keep people reading the GNT for life, please help us enlist more subscribers. Would you consider blogging, posting, or tweeting about it?
