Study the Greek text of the New Testament with Dr. Runge
If you’ve had some Greek before, or aren’t afraid of using a Greek interlinear, the Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament Datasets (4 vols.) is a great tool that can help you out.
Our understanding of the Greek New Testament is based almost entirely on English translations, but how would our understanding of the Greek text change if we read it for what it is—as Greek? With the Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament Datasets, we can now get behind the words of the New Testament writers and discover the particular linguistic tasks that inform translation and interpretation. The Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament Datasets identify discourse markers and perform complex discourse analysis of the entire New Testament quickly, easily, and accurately, which makes them one of the most advanced tools for studying the Greek text of the New Testament.
The Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament Datasets bring the insights of discourse analysis to bear on every verse of the Greek New Testament, giving you instant access to rich discourse data absent from most commentaries and grammars.
