 For the Greek course we use this book:   

Beginning Greek: A Functional Approach

Stephen William Paine. Oxford University Press, 1961 - 325 pages. 


Employing an inductive approach to learning Greek, this popular book emphasizes reading substantial passages from original literature rather than memorizing rules and forms. Grammar and syntax are introduced as the reading progresses. Beginning Greek features:


* Explanatory notes accompanying each passage. 

* An appendix containing literal translations of the reading

* Presentation of grammar in large units rather than in fragments, giving students a unitary view

* A progression of passages, from the easier New Testament Greek to the more difficult Attic Greek

Jn 1:1-6   World English Bible  (source  https://www.biblegateway.com)

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him. Without him, nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness hasn’t overcome it. There came a man, sent from God, whose name was John. Jn 1:1-6 (WEB)
