Zerwick stated, “the purpose of the present treatise was not so much a purely scientific or philological one, as that of encouraging future ministers of the Word to have recourse to the original Greek text.” Clear and straightforward, Biblical Greek is an excellent discussion of applied grammar, helping students better appreciate the nuances and subtleties of the Greek New Testament. The passages often reference relevant Bible verses.
New Testament scholar Gordon Fee, in New Testament Exegesis, describes Biblical Greek as an “especially useful” text for the study of Greek idioms. Fee recommends Zerwick’s books several times throughout his work. For those seeking to simplify their Greek New Testament exegesis, Biblical Greek is invaluable.
