The Handy Guide to Difficult and Irregular Greek Verbs is a learning aid for anyone wishing to master New Testament vocabulary, especially those transitioning from beginning courses in Greek to regular reading of the New Testament. By listing irregular verb tenses from most to least frequently used, it fills an empty niche in the student's toolbox. No other such list exists in published form though the necessity of learning irregular verbs is universally recognized. Irregular verbs in Greek are equivalent to the English verb "go" and its past tense "went." The two words aren't intuitively connected, but must be memorized, and the user must know the words are versions of the same verb to find the full entry for "went" in the dictionary. This resource helps students learn those irregular Greek forms that are otherwise difficult to place. This is an excellent resource for pastors, biblical scholars, and anyone who learned Greek years ago and wants to improve their ease of reading the New Testament.
