- Does one "join" this group, or simply "follow"? Asking because the Lesson Syllabus says the following, and I am not finding where to download the Notes document? "To download a Notes document that highlights the readings for this course, join the GK101 Faithlife group: https://faithlife.com/gk101." John D. Schwandt, GK101 Introduction to Biblical Greek, Logos Mobile Education (Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press, 2017). Thank you for any direction! :)
- Going to start this course but I don't own a lot of the resources for the readings. Do I actually need them or can I get by without it?
- You don't need them. We put in links for additional reading at the end of every segment. The textbook for the course that I would recommend is John Schwandt's An Introduction to Biblical Greek: A Grammar with Exercises (Revised Edition) which was likely included with the course.
- Hello everyone! I've just started this course, but I seem to be having difficulty with getting the Greek Alphabet Tutor to work. I have tried on both the desktop app and on the app on my iPad. It won't work on the desktop, both on the web and in the app, and when I try accessing it on my iPad, I get a warning message that says, "This resource cannot be opened because it's not a part of your library." It shows I purchased it when I look it up on the website, but I can't figure out how to get it added to my iPad. Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong? Thanks so much for your help!
- You might need to log out and log back in.
- There's an Alphabet Tutor? Where is that? I'm trying to do the seg.3 activity for the Greek square of stops and I don't know what sounds the letters make so I can't figure out how to change the first letter in the combo. lol
- Hi John! I am so sorry for just now responding. If you're still looking for the Greek Alphabet Tutor, you can either purchase the Greek Alphabet Tutor (https://www.logos.com/product/45607/greek-alphabet-tutor), or you can purchase one of the packages from Logos for Academics (https://www.logos.com/academic). I got the Logos 9 Academic Premium and it gave me access to a good amount of things I was interested in as I learn Greek, but (if I remember correctly) you can purchase the cheapest one and you'll be able to get the Greek Alphabet Tutor. Either way, I would reach out to someone at Logos for help! Sorry again for just now responding.
- Hi everyone, I've just started the course. Now I am wondering, whether there is a way to use the Logos Flashcard App for the vocabulary with the Koine pronounciation instead of the Erasmian. Thanks, Simone
- I believe so, I used it and I think there is an option to do it or it already is set up this way.
- Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I have only the Erasmian ponunciation set up and cannot find a switch to change that in the Flashcard app. I changed it to Koine in the desktop version, though.
- Does the course talk about the flash card app? (I just started, but I want to get everything out of this course that I can)
- I am just starting this course and am curious what the name of the Greek Grammer is Dr. Schwandt uses in this course. I can’t seem to find it by the name he mentions in the opening videos. Thanks Jason
- The main grammar he uses is An Introduction to Biblical Greek: https://www.logos.com/product/192820/an-introduction-to-biblical-greek-a-grammar-with-exercises.An Introduction to Biblical Greek: A Grammar with Exercises (Revised Edition)In An Introduction to Biblical Greek, John D. Schwandt integrates the rigor of a classic Greek grammar with the fruit of contemporary language learning. The result is a one-stop introduction to New Testament Greek that is both academically sound and student friendly.www.logos.com
- John Schwandt, I've been going through the Gk101 course, and at the end of Segment 11, during the practice of elision, you repeatedly pronounce ἑκάστην as ἑσκάτην. Is that a pronunciation mistake, or a transcription mistake? I'm just curious. I'm finding the videos to be excellent, and very informative.
- I'm using the web app. (The desktop app just runs TOO slowly on my machine.)
- That's the issue. Unfortunately the web app doesn't support the self-test files that Mobile Ed exams uses yet.
- OK, thanks for clearing that up. I am still thoroughly enjoying the course, and there is plenty in it to keep me busy. Someday, if I get a better computer, I will reinstall the desktop app!
- Hi I am posting this in order to get the certificate through logos 1.1 Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ λόγος, καὶ ὁ λόγος ἦν πρὸς τὸν θεόν, καὶ θεὸς ἦν ὁ λόγος. 2 οὗτος ἦν ἐν ἀρχῇ πρὸς τὸν θεόν. 3 πάντα διʼ αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο, καὶ χωρὶς αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο οὐδὲ ἕν. ὃ γέγονεν 4 ἐν αὐτῷ ζωὴ ἦν, καὶ ἡ ζωὴ ἦν τὸ φῶς τῶν ἀνθρώπων· 5 καὶ τὸ φῶς ἐν τῇ σκοτίᾳ φαίνει, καὶ ἡ σκοτία αὐτὸ οὐ κατέλαβεν. 6 Ἐγένετο ἄνθρωπος ἀπεσταλμένος παρὰ θεοῦ, ὄνομα αὐτῷ Ἰωάννης· 7 οὗτος ἦλθεν εἰς μαρτυρίαν, ἵνα μαρτυρήσῃ περὶ τοῦ φωτός, ἵνα πάντες πιστεύσωσιν διʼ αὐτοῦ. 8 οὐκ ἦν ἐκεῖνος τὸ φῶς, ἀλλʼ ἵνα μαρτυρήσῃ περὶ τοῦ φωτός. 9 ἦν τὸ φῶς τὸ ἀληθινὸν ὃ φωτίζει πάντα ἄνθρωπον ἐρχόμενον εἰς τὸν κόσμον. 10 Ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ ἦν, καὶ ὁ κόσμος διʼ αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο, καὶ ὁ κόσμος αὐτὸν οὐκ ἔγνω. 11 εἰς τὰ ἴδια ἦλθεν, καὶ οἱ ἴδιοι αὐτὸν οὐ παρέλαβον. 12 ὅσοι δὲ ἔλαβον αὐτόν, ἔδωκεν αὐτοῖς ἐξουσίαν τέκνα θεοῦ γενέσθαι, τοῖς πιστεύουσιν εἰς τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ, 13 οἳ οὐκ ἐξ αἱμάτων οὐδὲ ἐκ θελήματος σαρκὸς οὐδὲ ἐκ θελήματος ἀνδρὸς ἀλλʼ ἐκ θεοῦ ἐγεννήθησαν. 14 Καὶ ὁ λόγος σὰρξ ἐγένετο καὶ ἐσκήνωσεν ἐν ἡμῖν, καὶ ἐθεασάμεθα τὴν δόξαν αὐτοῦ, δόξαν ὡς μονογενοῦς παρὰ πατρός, πλήρης χάριτος καὶ ἀληθείας· 15 (Ἰωάννης μαρτυρεῖ περὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ κέκραγεν λέγων· Οὗτος ἦν ὃν εἶπον· Ὁ ὀπίσω μου ἐρχόμενος ἔμπροσθέν μου γέγονεν, ὅτι πρῶτός μου ἦν·) 16 ὅτι ἐκ τοῦ πληρώματος αὐτοῦ ἡμεῖς πάντες ἐλάβομεν, καὶ χάριν ἀντὶ χάριτος· 17 ὅτι ὁ νόμος διὰ Μωϋσέως ἐδόθη, ἡ χάρις καὶ ἡ ἀλήθεια διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ ἐγένετο. 18 θεὸν οὐδεὶς ἑώρακεν πώποτε· μονογενὴς θεὸς ὁ ὢν εἰς τὸν κόλπον τοῦ πατρὸς ἐκεῖνος ἐξηγήσατο. 1 1 Holmes, M. W. (2011–2013). The Greek New Testament: SBL Edition (Jn 1). Lexham Press; Society of Biblical Literature. John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:2 “He was in the beginning with God.” John 1:3 “Through Him all things came to be, and a part from Him nothing came into being.” John 1:4 “In Him was life, and this life was the light of all mankind.” John 1:5 “And this light shines in darkness, and the darkness couldn’t overcome it.” John 1:6 “There came to a man who was sent by God, his name was John, John 1:7 “He came to testify, in order that, he would testify concerning this light, in order that all should believe through Him.” John 1:8 “Not that he was this light, but in order that he testify concerning this light.” John 1:9 “This light is true and gives light to all mankind who comes into the world.” John 1:10 “He was in the world, and the world through Him came into being, the world did not know him.” John 1:11 “He came into his own, and His own did not receive Him.” John 1:12 “But, as many as received Him, who believe in Him, He gave them the right to become children of God,” John 1:13 “who are born not from blood nor from the will of flesh, nor from the will of man, but of God.” John 1:14 “And the Word became flesh and dwelt with us, and we beheld His glory, the glory of the unique and one of kind from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:15 “ ‘John testifies concerning him saying out loud, “He was the one spoken about, the one after me comes who is ahead of me because He was first before me.”’” John 1:16 “From His fullness, we all received, and grace upon grace,” John 1:17 “In order that the name through Moses was given, the grace and truth through Jesus Christ has come.” John 1:18 “No one has seen God, the unique and one of a kind God who is in the bosom of the Father, that one has been described.”
- Greet everybody, I started my lesson GK101 and come here to look for some help. I have learned some modern greek words, which sounds like the koine version, I smoothly pass the GK091. I have read some posts before, thank you for your advice here. God bless you.
- Hi there. I'm taking a crack at this course, hoping to see it through to certification. I took a Greek Language Tools course in seminary that used Mounce's "Greek for the Rest of Us" textbook. I'm hoping to get established with something more robust and move on to legitimate exegesis and regular reading. Has anyone compared this content with Mounce's BBG videos/Textbook? I started that a while back and lost steam after about six chapters. Looking forward to some interaction here.
Dr Dustin Massingale — EditedMounce's Greek for the Rest of Us seems to be more like LA181, where you learn to use tools that support your study. This leaves you with dependency on technology. This GK 101 is a full blown language comprehension program where you end up memoring something like 400 words in the New Testament, allowing you to pick up a UBS or Tyndale reader's edition and actually be able to do your daily bible study on paper. If you went through some of the videos on Mounce's "Greek for the Rest of Us" or the audio, you'll notice that they use Erasmian pronunciation instead of Koine. Good luck, brother this is difficult. I definitely recommend going through the GK091 Koine course first (which is required for certification). My gift to self was a Greek New Testament and I am loving to look at it after every new unit to see what new words I can understand!!!! There is nothing like actually touching and feeling a real Greek New Testament, so I'd definitely encourage you to pick one up as you go along just so that you start feeling what you're gong for and can keep the end in sight.
