An Introduction to Biblical Greek Video Lectures focuses on the linguistic and syntactic elements of Koine Greek with the goal of accurate interpretation. Drawing upon her thirty-year Greek-teaching experience and the latest developments in linguistics and syntax, Harris introduces students to basic linguistic concepts and categories necessary for grasping Greek in ways that are clear and intuitive. This solid linguistic foundation enables students first to internalize key concepts, then to apply and build upon them as more complex ideas are introduced.

Coordinated for use with the An Introduction to Biblical Greek Grammar textbook, An Introduction to Biblical Greek Video Lectures demonstrates how students should mark Greek texts so they can begin to "see" the syntax, using texts from both the Greek New Testament and Septuagint as examples.
