Rapid Reading Tools


A rapid reading tool saves you from the drudgery of looking words up in the BDAG Greek lexicon. Start with reading John 1–5 on the Mastering New Testament Greek disk. First John has also been added in an easy-reader style. The point of these tools is to help you do pleasure reading in the Greek New Testament. Yes, it should be a pleasure and a delight.

Other Reading Helps

Kubo, Sakae. A Reader’s Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1975.

Perhaps the way I enjoy reading the most is using Bible Works 7.0. This is the most excellent concordancing reading tool available anywhere. It is published by Hermeneutica and currently sells for about $350. It has full texts of the Septuagint, New Testament in Greek, numerous English, Spanish, German, French, Latin, and other translations. When you run your mouse across a word it automatically gives you the translation and parsing. Click on a word, and it will do a concordance search for the word in all the Septuagint, New Testament, or whatever. It’s an incredible tool and helps make reading Greek a pure pleasure. New Greek concordancing/reading programs by Logos, Accordance (Mac only), or Bible Windows may also fill a similar software role.

Vocabulary Builders


Three slender paperbacks and an ebook list the words of the Greek New Testament by frequency:
Hildebrandt, Ted. Vocabulary Frequency List ebook. See the Adobe Acrobat PDF files included on the Mastering New Testament Greek disk at the end of this textbook, if you want to print the vocab list, and see the Vocabulary Builder if you want an interactive flashcard-like approach on the computer. This list teaches you over 1,200 of the most frequently used Greek words, and it’s already on your disk.
