        I want to second Nichael's recommendation so that you avoid
learning Greek the grunt hard way like I did. Another option to explore
if you just want to do word studies and your goal is not to read the
text (I do recommend the reading though because that way you develop a
"sense" of words in context) is to get an electronic program. In
Bibleworks I just mouse-over the word and then the parsed form, root
form, and lexical entry appear in a second window on my screen. With a
right mouse-click I can then xref all verse containing the same forms or
roots in the GNT and/ or LXX. Gramcord is another fine program although
others should comment on its capabilities since I do not keep up with it
like I should. While books are fine for word studies, I get more
research done much more quickly electronically. I cannot comment on the
lesser capability products like QuickVerse, etc.
