Vocabulary Helps (Greek, Latin, and Hebrew)

Over the years I have compiled a number of vocabulary cards on Quizlet. I am currently trying to memorize all Greek words in the GNT down to 10x. I was thankful to realize that I had already made vocabulary cards using Trenchard’s The Complete Vocabulary Guide to the Greek New Testament. I thought I would highlight some of the sets I have created and some other useful apps to assist in vocabulary memorization. Personally, I use Quizlet to create the flashcards and then sync it with Flashcards Deluxe, which I have found to be the best flashcard app out there.

My Quizlet Sets

  • Vocabulary from 50 to 10 times in the GNT using Trenchard. I tried breaking down each category so there are no more than roughly 40 words in each set. Link
  • All Patristic Latin vocabulary words taking from John Collins’s Ecclesiastical Latin Grammar. These are broken down for each unit. Link
  • All Hebrew vocabulary words taken from Allen Ross’s Introducing Biblical Hebrew and Grammar. Note, due to the nature of the class I took the first half of the vocal is taken from the 1st edition. Link
  • Vocabulary in the book of James occurring 32 times or less. There are three different groupings: 1) the whole book of James 2) by chapter 3) by paragraph. Also see this blog post. Link


Danny Zacharias has created a wonderful app (and others!) for memorizing vocabulary called FlashGreek

This nice little app covers a number of grammars such as 

  •  Basics of Biblical Hebrew, by Gary D. Pratico & Miles V. Van Pelt
  •  Introducing Biblical Hebrew, Allen P. Ross
