A few years ago, a friend of mine started an online teaching ministry. Being the software developer, and a fan of my friends particular style of teaching, I offered my help in developing his website. The only payment I requested in return is for him to teach me how to read Biblical Greek.
Of course immediately people started asking me why. Was I planning on becoming a preacher/teacher? Was I planning an translating the Bible again thereby adding to the 1000s of translations already in existence? Was there a reason I preferred Greek over Hebrew? What did I hope to accomplish in this endeavor?
These questions and more will be answered in this blog. Even as I write this I feel the need to restrain myself from completely brain-dumping all over this first post. Suffice to say, learning Greek has been an exciting and rewarding experience, one I hope more Christians will engage in.
