Koine (NT) Greek translation, by Mary W. Matthews (wisdom@smart.net)

Mary Matthews writes:

[NT Greek is] Greek as spoken in NT [(Biblical) New Testament] times, called koine Greek ("koine" meaning common or vulgar). It was the English of its era--the language of trade, diplomacy, art, etc.--everyone who was anyone spoke his/her own language, plus koine Greek.

I took NT Greek as a summer-school course, and my translation of "The Jabberwocky" I did basically for my own amusement.
