Modern Koine pronunciation resources

Post by Benjamin Chandler » June 30th, 2017, 4:30 am

Are there any free resources for Modern Koine pronunciation users? Hearing something in Erasmian and having to (sometimes literally) translate it to Modern+breathing marks is slowing me down big time.

I have no idea if this is modern pronunciation but is certainly isn't Erasmian pronunciation.

You might try trolling YouTube - they have a lot of videos using modern Greek.

I'm not sure what trolling Youtube means but I meant PDF's, epubs, etc. Something that can used without internet. Probably should've said that, sorry.

I meant go to www.youtube.com and do a search for greek readings of the bible. Then you can download them to your computer and listen/view whenever you want.
eg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BfYa4Q ... 08671D260F (Matthew chapter 1 read by a modern Greek)
When you get to that page, there is a list of related videos just to the right of the main video

Thanks! I've only heard one Modern Greek recording on Youtube and it was quite old. This one is much better.

I just heard of this audio Septuagint: http://www.bible.is/GRKAVS/Gen/1/N
Wow, I hadn't noticed they had added the Septuagint. And the bits that I have heard so far are a little slower than the New Testament readings, which may make it easier to follow for those who have complained about his reading speed.
