Friends, I have learned about 1/3 of the Greek New Testament, and am familiar with many kinds of declension; tense; case and gender and so on. At the moment, every day for 20 minutes are so (after doing some flash cards) I will skim a portion of the TR Greek Testament and when I find a word that looks familiar - I identify the tense, number and so on. I have found this the most encouraging feature of learning the language - actually reading the word of God. There are some parts of the New Testament which are very easy to read and which a student could pick up in two weeks. I was wondering if some of the learned brethren here perhaps had complied a list of some "easier" portions in terms of the language. Perhaps in the Epistles. (I originally assumed that ease of reading in English = ease of translation - I quickly discovered this was not the case!) To give an example - the textbook I used introduced me to John 1 very early and I found this easy enough. One delusion however, is that I am exceptionally familiar with John 1 in English and I don't know how much my subconscious mind is feeding me answers.
