Greek grammar hits the beach!

The New Testament was originally written in a form of the Greek language called “Koine,” or “common.” This dialect came about before the time of Jesus as a result of the interplay between the Classical Greek language and the languages spoken by the peoples conquered by Alexander the Great. No language is ‘simple,’ but Koine reduced the complexity of Classical Greek and enabled the New Testament authors to write to a broad audience. I encountered Koine Greek during my studies at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary and began to understand the intricacies of the language’s structure and word meanings. I’m far from an expert, but I was able to learn from some true scholars of the Greek language. G
