After seminary or graduate school, very few of us can afford the luxury of spending more than a few minutes a day, if that, working on our Biblical Greek. Keep Up Your Biblical Greek in Two Minutes a Day: Volume 2 is designed to help anyone who has retained at least a basic knowledge of New Testament Greek to refresh and deepen their skills and understanding―even in the midst of a busy schedule. Like its predecessor volume, Keep Up Your Biblical Greek in Two Minutes a Day: Volume 1, this book does not replace the need for a grammar or textbook; rather, it complements grammatical study by helping you to build a robust vocabulary and to review morphology and syntax in a completely inductive way, and without using any grammatical jargon. While volume 1 helps you review the 365 most common words in the New Testament, volume 2 focuses on the next most frequently occurring group of 365 words (those that occur between 41 and 16 times in the New Testament), likewise presenting these words one day at a time in order of descending frequency, and in the context of verses in which they appear. The structure and daily components found in volume 2 are identical to those of volume 1 and thus will be immediately familiar to anyone who has used that book. After working through Keep Up Your Biblical Greek in Two Minutes a Day: Volume 1 and just the first 90 days of volume 2, you will have seen all the vocabulary you need in order to engage with any verse in the New Testament with the help of a resource such as the UBS Greek New Testament Reader’s Edition. And by the time you finish volume 2, you will have read through 730 verses of the New Testament in the original Greek!
