Steve --
If you are really trying to learn Greek, you might want to consider learning
the most-common vocabulary words -- in order of frequency -- and pick up a
good grammar like William Mounce's *Basics of Biblical Greek* or others that
are also useful.

I mentor graduate students in koine Greek grammar and would love to send you
(or anyone else) any handouts I've created that you might find useful,
including a 20-page vocabulary list (more or less in order of frequency
encountered in the GNT), another list of easily confused words, a chart for
parsing verbs along with verb patterns, etc.
