Start your review of Going Deeper with New Testament Greek: An Intermediate Study of the Grammar and Syntax of the New Testament
This intermediate academic book on New Testament Greek is aimed toward an audience that has already done the basics at Greek including common vocabulary, foundational principles of syntax and have done some translating of New Testament Scriptures. It really is written more toward the college or seminar students in a sequential manner that actually makes this book fun to follow along. The authors do an excellent job of laying out the purpose of each chapter, providing examples and practice with ...more
Easily my favorite Greek textbook/resource Ive used to date. Its extremely student-friendly: comprehensive without being overwhelming; ends every chapter with practice exercises, vocab lists, and an exegesis of a GNT passage; and is often downright ENJOYABLE to read. The authors exhibit a pastoral focus, regularly showing where the rubber meets the road and how the study of the Greek text directly impacts ones life and ministry. Highly recommended for pastors and Greek students. ...more
This is one reference material that you absolutely need in your Greek studies. While other studies focus on the morphology (study of words and forms), this source looks more into syntax (the use of those words in sentences). This is a resource to which I will return often.
Dr Plummer is my greek Prof so I am probably biased. That being said, this book is well written and gives lots of examples for each of the grammatical and syntactical concepts it discusses. This was our textbook for our Greek Syntax and Exegesis class (a.k.a. Intermediate Greek).
Going Deeper with New Testament Greek by Andreas J. Köstenberger, Benjamin L. Merkle, and Robert L. Plummer is a refreshing alternative to some of the more commonly used intermediate Greek grammars on the market. Köstenberger, Merkle, and Plummer have provided the reader with a unique collaborative effort that is both sensitive to the ongoing needs of the classroom and conscious of the impending deficiency within the developing genre of intermediate Greek grammars. This accomplishment has ...more
This is a fantastic intermediate Greek grammar. It's well-organized and arranged so as to coincide with a semester of seminary (15 chapters for 15 weeks). Each chapter consists of a grammatical feature of Koine Greek (e.g. the Genitive Case) and then explains the authors' designated range of uses for said feature. Each chapter includes a passage from the GNT for the student to translate, along with a vocabulary list (mostly taken from the reading) and an exegetical guide for the passage written ...more
The study of the original language of scripture is a lost art in the study of the Bible. Yet it is one area that sorely needs correction to understand the depths of the Word of God. As a minister to children, youth, and families I prepare an average of six gospel messages a week, a process which takes most of my work week. Yet when I neglect a study of the original languages the gospel messages suffer because there is a noticeable lack of depth missing due to this neglect.

I found this a helpful intermediate Greek grammar, especially as I worked through it on my own. From what I understand Dan Wallace's book is more popular for intermediate Greek, but many reviews said he put too much information into it, and over-categorized. This book didn't seem to do that. I enjoyed the practice exercises, the Greek passages, and reading notes. I'm not in a position to critique the content really. The only thing I would like to have is an 'answer key' for the practice ...more
Uma gramática escrita para ser lida de forma contínua e não apenas ser consultada. Os autores trazem discussões mais modernas no campo da linguística grega. Cada capítulo é acompanhado por uma tabela de resumo muito útil para consultas rápidas, bem como exercícios e análises de pequenos trechos do Novo Testamento. Não é tão exaustiva quanto a gramática grega do Wallace, mas cumpre bem a sua proposta de ser uma gramática intermediária. É um bom apoio para os estudantes que já passaram por um ano ...more
A fantastic book for intermediate Greek students. Very helpful with many examples, and written like a textbook rather than a reference book. It reads well and there is available helpful materials online to supplement the book. A good variety of texts were investigated, and the questions at the end of the chapter helps one test the knowledge acquired in the chapter.
A solid contribution and valuable resource for any pastor's library. It's not as intimidating as Wallace's BtB and is able to efficiently cover the same range of material. I liked the structure of each chapter and find it more accessible for learning and reviewing.
