Robert Wermuths  GREEKBOOK is a great help to those who need to see the noun and verb  charted completely,  and even for those who dont. This book has charts that no other book  (that  I  am  familiar  with)  has.

 

Rev.  Chris  Smith Founding  Pastor,  Resurrection Presbyterian  Church,  Carondelet,  Missouri

Studying, understanding, and delighting in language is in Robert Wermuths blood, and his first love among languages is New Testament Greek. Roberts  passion is teaching others, and not only is his enthusiasm infectious, but his methods are effective in helping his students get a firm handle on Greek. Through years of personal study, tutoring individuals, and teaching in a classroom setting, Robert has reshaped and  refined his material into the book you have before you. In a very short period of time, using the methods  that Robert developed, I was able to recapture the Greek that Id  first learned in seminary. I eagerly commend to you Wermuth’s GREEKBOOK. Im certain that it will be a great help to those who wish to read and understand the New Testament in the original language.

The first discoveries of the original languages of Holy Scripture play a big factor in how long  and  joyfully a bible student will keep digging for new treasures. Robert Wermuths masterful  way of  teaching not only introduced me to Greek but gave me confidence to go on from this  strong foundation to life-­changing exegesis.

 

Rev. Jeffrey J. Meyers — Pastor, Providence Reformed Presbyterian Church, Crestwood, Missouri

“If you are interested in learning Greek for the first time or need to bone up on your knowledge for New Testament studies, I highly recommend Wermuth’s GREEKBOOK. At Covenant Seminary, Robert’s note-taking skills and ability to systematize complex subjects in charts and diagrams were legendary. Robert brings his love of Greek and his hands-on understanding of pedagogy to this newer work. The charts alone are worth the price on the book.”

I  am impressed with Roberts teaching style.  He makes learning an ancient language exciting. God has blessed him with a rare gift.

 

Dr. Daniel W. Zink Assistant Professor of Practical Theology, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri

Learning a language is never easy, but, in my experience, Robert Wermuths materials made it easier. The systems  built into his approach made learning logical and efficient. Robert has done the work of finding the patterns that,  when learned, allow the student to build new learning on  top of what he has previously learned. In this way, the  new things are not as new as they might initially appear.

 

Timothy Butler  Assistant Pastor of Discipleship, Grace Presbyterian Church, St. Charles, Missouri 

During the year I studied Greek under Mr. Wermuth at Lindenwood University, he gave me many helpful insights into the logic of  the language, completely eliminating the whole idea of memorizing every variant of every verb and noun individually. He demonstrated the patterns behind those variations, so that studying Greek became a process of understanding and not just memorization. It is extremely exciting to see this wonderfully useful information, most of which I have not seen in any previous Greek grammar or aid I tried, put into one logically organized book. To an introductory Greek student, the techniques of Wermuth’s   GREEKBOOK make a daunting project seem attainable and, for a continuing Greek student, it is an essential reference.

You really should know how much help your book has been for me down here . . . People call your book the magic book!

 

The Brookmans (Marianne, Janet, Abigail, and Grace) — homeschool family, St. Louis, Missouri     

We are a homeschool family that  as thoroughly enjoyed taking New Testament Greek from Robert Wermuth. This GREEKBOOK puts together many of the helpful references he provided to us in class. It is a wonderful resource that will enable the Greek student to better understand Gods amazing Word.”

  1. I bought your book earlier in the year and have a question. When translating “to” from English to Greek when does one use the dative case vs. the preposition “en”?
    P.S. I tried to find somewhere to ask a question and this is the only place I could find.

    • Good question. The dative case (in the 5-case system) has various functions, the most basic of which is “personal interest” (i.e. to or for . . .). Of course we also need to express “location” (in, at) and “instrumentality” (with, by). All the more reason I prefer the 8-case paradigm which reflection the dative endings as the Locative, Instrumental, and Dative (or the L.I.D. cases). Either way when translating “to” from English, you would simply use the Dative case Greek noun. Use ἐν when you mean in or among (Locative case/Dative of Location). Of course for the Greek Instrumental you have the prepositions συν (with) and ὑπο (by).
