In fits and starts, I have been a student of koine / New Testament Greek most of my life. I can think of five starts:
3. Finally, in 2003 at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, I took an Intro to NT Greek and then a Greek exegitical class in Colossians. Dr. Noh was a great teacher. I bought the pack of 1000 vocabulary cards and for a while was pretty good, especially in Colossians. But time passed and the brain cells died. Here are some excerpts from my Greek readings:
4. After Kim died in 2010, I wanted some distraction, so I dug out my Greek cards and for a few months, I thumbed through them as I wandered around the Cal State campus. I moved on and neglected my studies.
5. Then as a New Year's resolution in 2018, I determined to re-new my Greek studies. I am being very dilligent and consistant this time round. I want to get into the Greek Bible every day as a form of personal deviotion and Bible study. Ask me in another year if the fifth time is the charm.
