Which Greek?
Biblical, Classic or Contemporary?

Contemporary is what you would speak if you went to Greece today.

Contemp no.  I have biblical and Classical around here somewhere.  Let me dig for them and I'll see what I can do.   

Before I do please understand with biblical/classical we are talking about finding ancient documents that are stored in places like the Vatican or the the British Museum or copies of them in University Libraries for research purposes All of which have restricted access?  It's pretty much limited in scope of what there is to read and  mainly are  ancient classics that we have fragments of. 

What you are reading when you are reading the ancient classics usually is from books that were saved by the Romans and you are reading the "Latin" translation of such books which were in turn translated by other scholars into their languages.  Very little of the Greek remain except as fragments.

Example of a chain is Aramaic to  Greek  to Latin to German or English.  The common language translation is much later in history around the time of the printing press.

So since the scope is so limited and you won't find much to read in this area unless you plan on becoming something like a Biblical Scholar, do you really want them?

Contemp I might be able to get you someone who can help.
