Recently, I’ve been playing around with the idea of memorizing some of the Greek New Testament. Diglot’s recent post re-sparked the interest. I’ve memorized large portions of Paul’s letters in English, but haven’t memorized any scripture in Greek yet (unless you count ο θεος αγαπη εστιν !). After reading through some of John 1, I think that’s where I’m going to start. The passage is beautiful, and the language is some of the simplest in the New Testament.

The only trick now is teaching my girlfriend to read enough Greek to keep me honest! Thankfully she’s quite smart. She will likely know more Greek than I do in no time at all ;-)
