Koine Greek

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  Which Greek is used in the original bible scrolls, and where can I learn it? Also, I know there are bibles that have the original Greek with the English transitions right next to it, but which is the best and most reliable edition?

A:  It’s called Koine Greek, and in Kansas city Rockhurst University offers a class TH3130: http://www.rockhurst.edu/academics/undergraduate/majors/theology-religious-studies/courses/

We use the New American Bible Revised Edition for mass, but I’m not sure if it comes with an interlinear translation. There is a Revised New Standard Version interlinear, and it would be fine.
