A Poem for the New Year

A poem from the beginning of a 1610 Geneva NT which sets the stage for the new year.

HT: Running Well

This Sacred Writ, although it be but small,
One day must pass just sentence on us all,
Let life be wicked, loose, or how it will,
Heaven's for the just, but hell for wicked still.
This Sacred Volume then shall be my guide,
Since at my end by it I must be tried.

No, this has nothing to do with your post, although I do like that poem.

You were asking about Greek textbooks. When I was in university, I had a Dutch Reformed pastor as a professor. We used a book called An Introduction to New Testament Greek by R.A. Martin. I know that in later years (the prof is dead now) he developed his own material.

As a refresher, I bought Bill Mounce's Basics of Biblical Greek. It comes with a CD-ROM of his lectures, and tools to see the words and hear how they are pronounced. There is also a workbook of exercises. You can order it from Christian Book Distributors. It moves pretty quickly, which is good, and you can download the ansewer key to the exercises.
