I have taught a course on Extrabiblical Greek for ThM students. To my
surprise, they ate it up. I had them do some background reading and
translating from Hellenistic, Jewish, and Christian sources. I stressed
gaining competence and LS and Lampe. The texts I remember:

Epictetus, section of Discourse
Plutarch, Theseus and Romulus

Section of Philo on Abraham
Section of Test. Abraham
Psalm of Solomon 18
Josephus, the section on John the Baptist's beheading

Ignatius to Polycarp
Some Clement of Alexandria, "exhortation to endurance"
Section from Athanasius On the Incarnation
Nicene Creed, Chalcedonia Creed
Basil, Letter of Consolation
