The 'Lucian Pronunciation' of Koine Greek

What has brought me back is I am curious to get people's opinions on a new pronunciation scheme for Koine Greek that has been put forward recently by classicist/latinist Luke R...

Re: H(ow h)as Greek ever actually helped you?

Knowing Greek means I win bible arguments by appeals to authority (ie. my own) much easier now :D.

Re: Where to begin...

What Randall says about Living Koine book 1 is spot on. Paint primer for the brain to receive more learning in the right way. Great metaphor! Get the MP4 version of it now. Skip a couple meals. Bullet bittten, order made! Actually my wife has been quite sick the last few days so people from church ...

Re: Where to begin...

Thanks so much for all your advice guys! The way I'm taking your post is that you are asking, "How can an autodidact best internalize Greek?" That would be a more succinct way of putting it, yes. But hey I'm studying Greek Grammar not English Prose :D... Your approach actually sounds really useful, ...

I have spent the last 2 weeks or so researching as much info as I can find on Greek resources and getting your Greek as good as possible (which is what brought me here in the first place). I predict a very full-on and Greek-filled 2015, and will certainly be fillin...
