Greek To Me

Advances in the Study of Greek: New Insights for Reading the New Testament by Con Campbell looks really good and fills a large gap for those (like me) who studied Greek so long ago.

And all along I thought I had a grip on deponent verbs and all the exegetical insights they bring. NOT! I need to update my knowledge of the Greek New Testament and keep abreast of the latest research and most important ideas that have emerged. It’s not just about being updated but about being accurate and getting at the truth of God’s Word to us.

Con holds a doctorate in Ancient History, and is co-chair of the Biblical Greek Language and Linguistics section of the Society of Biblical Literature and Associate Editor of the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary series. He lectures at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Illinois. Before going into academia, Con was a trained professional jazz saxophonist. He continues to play jazz at a professional level in a variety of contexts.
