As I alluded to in a previous post, I am going to start pursuing Bible translation. One of the requirements is that I learn Greek fairly well. I tried learning it a time or two in the past (though they were brief and feeble attempts before to learn on my own), and I didn’t get very far. But this time I need to stick with it.
I just got a new copy of Mounce’s “Basics of Biblical Greek“. I got through chapter 3 already, and I remember the alphabet and pronunciation far better than I expected.
I’d love some recommendations for the following things if any of you might be able to make suggestions:
Flashcard iPhone App: I would like to get a good flashcard app for my iPhone. Does anyone have any good recommendations? I know there is an app for $19.99 that is called “Basics of Biblical Greek”, but in the reviews people are saying that it’s a bit lacking for a $20 app. Is it worth the money? There are others that are much cheaper, but I just don’t know what will be most helpful.
Greek Bible: I’d like a nice Greek Bible, and I know there are not only different translations out there, but also many different versions, styles, things they include, etc.
Any Good Online Tools/Resources: I know that on Mounce’s website, teknia.com, there are some good resources. Is there anything else that is good and useful out there?
Other Good Resources: There are a lot of books, lexicons, dictionaries, etc. out there that could be helpful in learning and studying Greek. But, I have no idea what is actually worth getting. Any suggestions?
