You should choose a passage that is interesting to you for some reason - either because of the message or meaning of the passage, or because of the Greek words that it contains.
Length. You can choose just a single verse, or you can choose several verses. It is up to you. There is no minimum or maximum length for this assignment, although at the beginning of the semester you should probably stick to just one or two verses.
Check in Croy! Every lesson of Croy has verses from the Septuagint and New Testament. These are good possibilities to consider, because Croy provides you with all the vocabulary you need to read and understand every word in the verse.
Meaning of the Greek words. If you have chosen a verse and you have questions about the meaning of the Greek words, contact me, and I will be glad to answer any questions you have about it (but if you want me to do this, please don't put the assignment off until the last minute!).
Sample recitation. It can be helpful to listen to somebody else do the reading before you prepare your own version. For the recitation of New Testament, you can hear one version of audio by listening to Marilyn Phemister's reading of the New Testament. You can get all of Phemister's readings at the Greek Gospel Calendar website. If you need some help with the recitation of the Septuagint passage, you can contact me, and I will read the passage for you so you can listen to my reading and use that to get some ideas and guidance. Again, if you want me to prepare an audio file for you to listen to for guidance, do not put this assignment off until the last minute. You need to contact me as soon as possible if you need my help with the pronunciation of the passage you have chosen.
