myGreekBIBLE was created for you!
This site is for everyone. For everyone just like God intended it to be.
After all, that is what the word “KOINE” means:
The language that is spoken by everyone in a country
and helps in the communication between those that speak different dialects.
Now we can all know what the Greek Biblical text says; and everyone includes Y O U !
ΚΟΙΝΗ / KOINE:
ΚΟΙΝΗ: Η γλώσσα που μιλιέται από όλους σε μια χώρα και βοηθά στην συνενόηση αυτών που μιλούν διάφορες διαλέκτους. (ΠΑΙΔΙΑ, ΠΡΟΤΟΤΥΠΟ ΛΕΞΙΚΟ, ΤΗΣ ΝΕΑΣ ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΗΣ, ΕΚΔΟΣΕΙΣ ΣΤΑΦΥΛΙΔΗ)
TRANSLATION: KOINE: The language that is spoken from everyone in one country and helps in the communication between those that speak different dialects.
BUT HOW DOES THE “KOINE” LANGUAGE RELATE TO YOU?
Because it is the language that is spoken for everyone, to everyone, and that is you. And although “KOINE” refers to the language, “KOINO(S)” refers to people just like you.
Here are the three definitions of KOINO, from the Greek by a Greek, that relate to You:
- Κοινό: Ο λαός, ο κόσμος, η κοινωνία Koino: The people, the world, the ensemble of people to achieve one organic result
TRANSLATION: Koino: The people, the world, the ensemble of people to achieve one organic result
- Κοινό: Σύνολο προσώπων πού συγκεντρώνονται γιά τό ίδιο σκοπό η συνδέονται με τή χρήση ή αγορά ενός πράγματος
- TRANSLATION: Koino: The assembly of faces (people) that gather for the same goal or get connected with the use or the purchase of one thing
- Koina: Τά κοίνα: Οι δημόσιες υποθέσεις της χώρας
TRANSLATION: The public assumptions of the country
DO YOU SEE IT? Although “KOINE” is the language, “KOINOS” refers to people like You and me. That IS who the Scriptures were spoken and written for: You! AND IT ALL BEGINS HERE!
Peter theGreek, founder of myGreekBIBLE, was born in Athens, Greece and raised in a village on the Mediterranean Sea. He attended school in Greece until his parents immigrated to North America when he was a young teenager. He has been reading, writing, speaking, and translating Greek since 1972 and is tri-lingual; thus, he understands languages as well as the difference in cultures and in traditions.
Greek traditions, the way of life of the Greek culture, and the Greek writings go back over 3,400 years. The Greek language consists of over 5,000,000 words. In contrast, the English language contains a little over 170,000 words. You can see that an attempt to accurately translate the Scriptures in the English language is almost an impossible task. Some text has been “lost in translation”, other text has inaccuracies, or the translation may not include the original detail or depth as the original language does.
Adding to it the Mediterranean “way of life”, the “culture”, the “traditions”, the “Greek philosophy” or the “Mediterranean frame of mind” and it does become an impossible task to have the accuracy and the depth of the original language. But not for someone that is Born-Again, has the Holy Spirit living in them and the Greek is unveiled in a whole new level of relational understanding. Now, you too will get to know!
Know it for Yourself
Learn from a native Greek
If you wanted to learn a difficult language, let’s say Biblical Greek for example, would you prefer to learn it from someone who is not Greek that learned the language from someone who is not Greek, who cannot read Greek and translate it without looking up every word on the internet or look up commentaries? Or would you rather learn from someone who was born and raised in Greece, knows the culture, knows the history, knows the Greek Scriptures (Septuagint & New Testament) and can simply read the text and translate it while reading it? That is what myGreekBIBLE is all about.Learn More
