Next Steps

 Reading Order of Greek New Testament Books

As they say, if you don’t use it you lose it. As your fluency with Koine Greek increases, you should start to transition to reading the Greek New Testament outside of your study times. If your pastor is preaching on a New Testament passage, take your Reader’s Greek New Testament to church with you and follow along the best you can. If you are reading through one of the easier NT books, say Mark or John, try reading it in Greek instead of using your English translation. You will lose speed, but it’s the only way to lock in your gains and ultimately become proficient.
