I have been trying to do more Greek reading of late and I came across this list over at the Dunelm Road blog. The list is by Daniel Wallace and was originally posted by Ben Blackwell here.. The order of the list is supposed to go form easiest to hardest while being grouped in about 10 chapter increments.
Theoretically one could read the whole New Testament in a month but for my studies right now that seems a little too ambitious. I do think I will try to start with a chapter a day and increase over time.
I find it best to use the Zondervan Greek Reader for when I am just reading Greek. I find by using the reader it forces me to think through words I should know but have forgotten. For example, if you come across a word that occurs more than 30x it will not be listed in the footnotes. If I were not using a reader I would have a much quicker trigger looking up a word that I already know. I prefer this reader over UBS Greek NT Reader’s Edition for a couple reasons:
If anyone is interested in forming a Greek reading plan with me just contact me via twitter (@renshaw330) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). This would mostly be for accountability purposes because it is so easy to stray from reading the original languages daily.
Here is the list:
