Vocabulary Resources

Greek Flash cards for Microsoft Excel

  • A fully functional Greek Flashcard program for memorising vocabulary
  • Requires Microsoft Excel 97 or above (included in Microsoft Office standard edition)
  • Doesn’t need any other Flashcard software to run

Remata: Eric Miller, Software Engineer and Professor of Bible and Biblical Languages at Quartz Hill School of Theology, has optimised and upgraded my initial Greek vocab spreadsheet to work on a number of platforms. Remata is freely available for download and I reckon it’s a significant improvement on my own efforts – I suggest you check our Remata first before you download anything from this site!

On this site, there are currently four word lists available

Morphology Resources

  • Feeling Greek (PDF): This course is designed as a simple, phonics-based introduction to New Testament Greek. It can be used as a ‘refresher’ for students of Greek who have found themselves struggling with the complexities of the language at an advanced level and need to remind themselves of the basics; or as a basic-level introduction for new students of the language who appreciate learning a few simple rules with intensive ‘drills’ rather than extensive amounts of miscellaneous information.
    • At this stage, I have only completed the first 10 chapters – enough to give you a complete foundation in morphology and to begin applying this to nouns, etc. I’m putting it up in this draft form because I’d appreciate feedback about the course – especially feedback about whether you think it would be useful for me to add more chapters to develop this into a full-blown course in the shape of the Greek language.
  • Greek Morphology (PDF): A concise (11 A4 pages) tabular summary of everything that needs to be memorised for first year Greek morphology (ie the ‘shape’ of the language) at Moore Theological College. It is intended for those who want to keep memorisation to a minimum and work things out from first principles.

Grammar Resources

These macros were written for Word 2003. Unfortunately it seems that these macros don’t work so well on Word 2007 and beyond. Sorry about that.

Grabble

Grabble: The game for teaching one another Greek vocabulary. Based on Scrabble.

Fonts

To use most of these resources you will need three TrueType fonts:

  1. “bwgrkl” (from the Bibleworks website)
  2. “Symbol” (available with Microsoft Windows)
  3. “TekniaGreek” (from the Teknia Language Tools website)

    God is nothing like the Elf on the Shelf. God’s power is far beyond us. Yet God’s power is at work in us. So God’s glory is our joyful goal.
  • EducationWhen education is not the answer (Romans 2:17–27)
    When education is not the answer (Romans 2:17–27). Amongst all the pragmatics & demands & struggles of ministry, you first need to know the why of ministry. You need deep and strong theology, and to apply that theology to your life & ministry.
  • Colosseum with skyThis is huge (Ephesians 3:18–19)
    God’s plans for his world, and his love for us in Christ, are vast and awe-inspiring. They change everything. That’s why need prayer to grasp them.
  • Inscription behind table in St Stephens Anglican Church NewtownWhere does God live? (Ephesians 3:16–17)
    Can God’s presence be with us? If so, how? In bread and wine? In a tangible experience of worship? In Ephesians, Paul speaks about how Christ dwells among us.
  • Photo by Greg Rakozy on UnsplashWho are you praying to? (Ephesians 3:14–15)
    Most people pray. But not everyone prays in the same way. Your view of God will have a profound effect on your prayer life. Who are you praying to?
  • Photo by Jilbert Ebrahimi on UnsplashWith Israel Folau (repost)
    Given the current controversy surrounding Israel Folau's social media post, a piece I wrote for the ABC News website has again become highly topical.
  • My afflictions, your glory (Ephesians 3:12–13)
    We can react to suffering by avoiding or escaping or denying or rationalising it. For Paul, the gospel of Christ leads to a profoundly different reaction.
  • Ceiling Pattern, Christ Church College Staircase, OxfordGod’s multidimensional wisdom (Ephesians 3:9–11)
    Do you think being a Christian is boring? If so, maybe your view of God is one-dimensional. But Paul sees God and his purposes in vivid multidimensional glory.
  • People and the Post, Postal History from the Smithsonian's National Postal MuseumThe meaning of ministry (Ephesians 3:7–8)
    Christian ministry is hard. So why be involved at all? Pragmatics and techniques alone can’t answer that question. We need to know the meaning of ministry.
  • Photo by Sai de Silva on UnsplashThe open secret (Ephesians 3:4–6)
    How can we know God’s will? Some try to see God’s will in the progress of history. But this is disastrous. God’s will is something we can’t work out by ourselves.
