Why and how should clergy learn Greek?
It’s obvious the New Testament was written in Greek and very short. It is better to read something in the original language for understanding.
Learning Greek gives a better insight and an awareness of shortcomings of translations (Romans 8. vs18-24 is a classic case and even NT Wright gets lost onit with the fours seasons as the result of Adam eating an apple)
I am a lousy linguist but find reading a little Greek daily as my my bible study an immense help, though at times I get bogged down and find some passages very hard.
Lastly, I reckon learning Greek should be compulsory for ordination training.
Have i said the wrong thing?
