Interlinear for the Rest of Us
Most interlinear Bibles are superb resources for Greek students. But what about the rest of us who don’t know Greek? Here is the answer. While other interlinear Bibles assume that you know Greek. Interlinear for the Rest of Us assumes that you don’t, or that you’ve forgotten much of what you once knew. Designed for busy pastors, Sunday school teachers, and anyone who wants a practical tool for studying the Scriptures, this interlinear makes reading easy by flip-flopping the usual order of appearance. It uses the English text as the main text rather than the Greek, so there is absolutely no confusion about the meaning of what you’re reading. Discover the Greek words behind the English translation. Conduct your own word studies using Greek word study books—without knowing Greek. Interlinear for the Rest of Us offers these features: Interlinear passages appear in a “staff” with four interrelated lines (see excerpt). From top to bottom, the lines are: English text in New International Version Corresponding Greek words Parsing information Goodrick-Kohlenberger numbers Greek text in normal Greek order at the bottom of the page, underneath the interlinear section Mounce’s Greek-English Dictionary at the back of this volume, keyed to both Goodrick-Kohlenberger and Strong’s numbering systems Ideal for use with Greek for the Rest of Us and other Greek study tools
