The reasons for studying Greek are numerous. This essay will address a number of the benefits of studying the ancient language. Some of the benefits are intrinsically valuable, that is they are good in and of themselves, not sought out for any particular means, and some of the benefits for studying New Testament Greek (Koine) are meant for more pragmatic purposes, or they are sought out for a means to an end. Some of the benefits of studying New Testament Greek are philosophical, theological, grammatical and linguistic, the general discipline of study, as well as for apologetics.
