Are you learning Koine Greek, the Greek of the New Testament and most other post-classical Greek texts? Whatever your level, use this forum to discuss all things Koine, Biblical or otherwise, including grammar, textbook talk, difficult passages, and more.
Hello, my goal is to learn Koine Greek so that i can grow in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I would appreciate some help. I want to know where can i find a chart with a historic Biblical Koine Greek prounuciation ? I dont want to learn Erasmian or Modern pronunciation.
And a couple of more questions.
Is the grammar, the meaning of the words and spelling of Koine Greek the same as Modern ?
What are the differences between Koine Greek and modern Greek ?

Here is the best explanation I've seen of Koine pronunciation: http://www.biblicallanguagecenter.com/k ... unciation/
Koine Greek is in between Classical (Attic) Greek and Modern Greek - but much closer to Attic.
Dic mihi, Damoeta, 'cuium pecus' anne Latinum?
