[ We are going
to read the text like this:
you will just see the original Greek side by side with an English translation.
Read first the translation without caring for the prototype. Then read the
Greek text trying carefully to identify words you already know from the
were writen there in capitals, but now you will see them in small letters.
Don't let this confuse you. If you've
studied the alphabet well enough,
you should be able to identify more than 15 words.
Read the text aloud to gain some familiarity with the sounding of Greek
words, even if you don't understand them.
Copy the Greek text in a piece of paper.
Second, we will read the
Greek original together, to understand the words and some of the
grammar and syntax ]
