I became enamored with the original language of the New Testament very quickly. Moreover, I was instantly enthralled with the teaching methodology employed by my beginning Greek instructor, who frequently reminded his students that, “Although I have tried, I just can’t make this stuff hard!” What he spent much of his life on, I have continued to develop and expand over a 25-year period. Greek has indeed become my academic “first love,” and these instructional tools my life’s legacy to future generations of beginning and ongoing New Testament Greek students.
