Finding the definition of a Greek word is a relatively simple process; you can find good material in any solid Bible
commentary. Greek grammar, however, is another story. You've heard preachers use concepts like the aorist
tense or the subjunctive mood to prove a point, and you've wondered, "How do they know that?"
grammar is trickier than studying words, because it requires a solid grasp of the way words are connected to express an idea.
You have to understand patterns and combinations, not just individual words. As a result, fewer people try to study
Greek grammar, and many of those have only a partial grasp of the subject. There are just enough similarities between
English grammar and Greek grammar to make you think you understand what's going on. But there are enough differences
to guarantee that your first impression is unreliable!
This section of the Ezra Project site will help you understand
how the Greek language is put together. You will learn the most important rules of grammar, as well as the limits of
your knowledge. When someone talks about the accusative case, you will be able to find out what he's talking about
. . . and you will begin to learn how to evaluate what you hear.
