listening to NT Greek does help Mar 30, 2007
Anyone serious about learning NT Greek should be reciting it and hearing it often. These c.d.'s get the job done. I have focused on listening to and reading 1 John over and over again to really drill the material, so it starts seeping in better. Pennington's voice and emphasis are fine, though in my opinion he speaks a little fast. I have noticed what apppears to be an occasional stress on the wrong syllable (e.g. theLEma sou in the Lord's prayer in Matthew) but this is no big deal. Learning to read Greek is very hard and Pennington has done a good job and speaks it pretty much the way any American would. Penny for penny this is a fine investment in learning Greek.
Great tool to help learn pronunciation Sep 28, 2004
"Readings in the Greek New Testament" is a welcome addition to the library of anyone studying New Testament Greek. While there are several excellent books on learning to read New Testament Greek (Koine Greek) but they all have the limitation inherent in any book about learning another language. No matter how well the author describes how to pronounce a word, where to put emphasis, or how to deal with diphthongs it is not the same a hearing it. On these two audio CDs Jonathan T. Pennington reads various passages in Koine Greek including the Sermon on the Mount, and the entire book of 1 John. If you have William Mounce's book "A Graded Reader of Biblical Greek" you will find all the passages mentioned there read aloud on this CD. While nobody is sure exactly how Koine Greek was pronounced, Dr. Pennington uses the most commonly accepted Erasmian pronunciation, which keeps the student in line with the majority of scholars. "Readings in the Greek New Testament" is highly recommended for anyone desiring to learn New Testament Greek and a great companion for anybody using William Mounce's book.
