I’m excited to announce that volume 3 of the Apostolic Fathers Greek Reader series has been released. This volume includes Polycarp, Papias, and Diognetus. Here’s a description of the book by the publisher:
The Apostolic Fathers Greek Readers series assists students of Greek in reading non-biblical Koine Greek. In this volume, readers will engage the Greek texts of Polycarp’s Epistle to the Philippians, The Martyrdom Polycarp, Papias, and Diognetus. Vocabulary words occurring less than 30 times in the Greek New Testament are provided to help students quickly read the text and focus on its syntax. This work also includes an introduction and a select bibliography that orients readers to the settings and theologies of each work. Together, these elements make this Greek reader an ideal resource for students of early Christianity.
If you’re looking to expand your knowledge of Greek beyond the New Testament, I strongly recommend you pick up this volume along with the other three volumes in the series (Vol. 1: Letters of Ignatius, Vol. 2 Didache and Barnabas, and Vol. 4: 1 and 2 Clement). And if this isn’t enough Greek literature for you, work is currently being done on the final volume, which will have Shepherd of Hermas.
