Introduction - This web project I created from the First Greek Book, however, there are some changes that I took the liberty to make, for example, I have added color to allow the reader to see the grammar much more easily.  Another modification that you will see in the text, is in the grammar charts.   For the second person plural, instead of using the formal, proper "you", I have used the word "yous", which is common usage in certain areas of the United States, but considered not proper, as far as grammar goes . . . but the huge advantage of using it is that it allows us to easily distinguish between the second person singular by using "you", and the second person plural, by using "yous".   You may also notice the trema (~) being referred to as a "circumflex", the font provides no circumflex, and in writing the Greek, simply replace the trema with a circumflex.  The answers provided may not all be perfect, as I am no great scholar of Ancient Greek, and they only go to a point around chapter twenty.   Alas, it seems I have spent more time creating this (approximately 2500+ hours) than I have studying it!
