One Year Later: It’s Time for Keep Up Your Biblical Languages Volume 2s!

By Tirzah Frank, Assistant Editor

How was everyone’s year with Keep Up Your Biblical Greek/Hebrew in Two Minutes a Day, Volume 1?

I’m going to take your silence as a sign that it was perfect and you’re ready for volume 2.

The second volumes are just like the first ones, but with the next 365-most-frequent words. If you’ve finished Keep Up Your Biblical Greek volume 1, then you’ve reviewed all the words that occur more than 41 times in the New Testament. If you make it through volume 2, you’ll have reviewed all the words that occur 17 times or more (and some of the 16xers). I don’t know about you, but I never quite mastered 20x or more in my Greek classes, so 17 would be a big accomplishment.

If you’d rather keep up your Hebrew, volume 2 covers all the words that occur between 120 and 49 times in the Old Testament.

Numbers are hard, so I’ll bottom line it for you: By completing either volume 2, you’ll have reviewed all the words that The Greek New Testament: A Reader’s Edition or Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia: A Reader’s Edition don’t gloss—and then some. That’s a huge step toward reading the New Testament or the Hebrew Bible with minimal assistance.

And just like their predecessors, these second volumes present new Bible passages in their original languages every day, keeping your vocabulary study rooted in its true purpose: to better know God and his word.

Here are some inside shots of both the Greek and Hebrew vol. 2s (click the headings to check out their pages on our website!):
