A Touchy Subject
Emotions often run high when debating how Greek should be pronounced in the classroom. We acknowledge that there are great arguments for the multiple pronunciation systems out there, and we do not claim that the modified Erasmian system used in our videos is more historically accurate. But we do ask that people be patient and polite if they disagree, and that they seek to understand the reasons why we pronounce Koine Greek the way we do. The Polis Institute has already written an explanation which you can read here. Please take the time to thoroughly appreciate the article’s arguments.
