Learn Accordance and “a little Greek” together

Mounce, Greek Primer for AccordanceIn previous posts, I’ve explained how to get started with Accordance for OS X and with Accordance for iOS. Here’s a new option to consider:

A combination of the Accordance Starter Collection ($50) and the Mounce Greek Study System ($160) will be ideal for many first-time Accordance users who want to go deeper into the Bible with Greek word studies.

The William Mounce bundle offers a great way to plunge deeper into general Bible study while learning Accordance at the same time. The Greek Study System bundle includes a tagged Greek New Testament (GNT-T), Mounce’s Reverse-Interlinear New Testament and Dictionary, Mounce’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, and the “Foundational Greek” 9-hour video series (formerly called the “Biblical Greek Primer” video series). Used in conjunction with the Lighting the Lamp podcast, Mounce’s Greek Study System offers a very relaxed approach to becoming familiar with Accordance’s Greek Bible study tools, without requiring the labors of traditional language study. This 3-minute intro explains how the System works:

The tagged Accordance modules (Mounce’s Reverse-Interlinear New Testament and Dictionary and Mounce’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words) are greatly enhanced over the print titles by the same names. The video series includes Accordance screencasts to follow along for interactive learning, practice and review.

Interested? Check out Mounce’s 14-minute orientation to the Greek Study System, and the accompanying screencast.

If this sounds interesting, videos for the first three lessons are free on Mounce’s Greek Primer website (with handouts):

  1. Class orientation
    1. Lecture (13:40)
