LXX GREEK


Welcome to LXX GREEK where you can learn New Testament Koine Greek online for free. LXX GREEK is not only for the beginner, but also for the intermediate student to the one who considers himself a Scholar. LXX GREEK was created with ease of use in mind so Disciples of Christ from all educational backgrounds can use and enjoy reading the original language of the New Testament. I have also attempted to make the website "Touch Screen" friendly for those who want to reference or study on the go.

A WORK IN PROGRESS -- LXX GREEK is a work in progress. Additions will be added daily, the Lord willing, until its completion. A companion workbook will be offered for those who are just beginning their exciting journey in learning a very rewarding language. For those who love the word of God, there is nothing more rewarding than reading it the way it was written over 2000 years ago. While we do not have the original manuscripts, we know with certainty that God has preserved His word through faithful disciples down through the years. I pray you are blessed.

What is the Septuagint or LXX?


Without giving a detailed history lesson, the Septuagint is the Hebrew Old Testament translated into Koine (from κοινη, meaning common) Greek by 70 Jewish Scholars around (285-246 BC). It is quoted in the New Testament by the Apostle Paul and by some of the "Early Church Fathers". Septuagint is derived from the Latin word Septuaginta, meaning seventy. LXX is the abbreviation given to the Septuagint in reference to the seventy Jewish Scholars that worked on translating the Hebrew scriptures into Koine Greek.

What is Koine Greek?

Koine Greek was the language spoken and written in eastern Mediterranean countries during the Hellenistic and Roman periods. This period ranges from a few hundred years before Christ, during the life of Christ and used by those of the first century church. It is the Greek language of the common man, or the non-sophisticated language. The Septuagint and the New Testament were both written in Koine Greek, as were a vast majority of the "Early Church Father's" writings.

What is the Byzantine Textform 2005?

The Byzantine text, also called the Majority Text, is considered by some to be inferior to the newer, as in discovered, Alexandrian text. The King James Version and the New King James Version bibles use Byzantine text, while most newer bible translations use the Alexandrian manuscripts. This is why we see portions of verses and chapters missing in our newer bible translations. The Byzantine manuscripts have more content than its Alexandrian counterpart. While owning the NA27 and the UBS4, I have chose to use the Robinson/Pierpont Byzantine Textform 2005 as a basis for my translation and online study of the bible in the original Greek language here on LXX GREEK.
