Calling All New Testament Greek Scholars

My find of the week is the The Greek New Testament Gateway page found at Dr. Mark Goodacre's The New Testament Gateway site.

The New Testament Gateway describes itself as "...the award winning web directory of internet resources on the New Testament. Browse or search annotated links on everything from the Greek New Testament to Jesus in Film."
The Greek New Testament page contains links to a number of on-line sources and texts relating to the Greek New Testament.

I came across this when getting into the Greek New Testament Audio Files at Christian Classics Ethereal Library. These MP3 files were narrated and compiled by Marilyn Phemister using "the public domain Westcott and Hort text, which is almost identical to Nestle-Aland."

Each chapter of the Greek New Testament has its own file. The file names are constructed to allow identification, and also retain the New Testaments sequential order by book and chapter.

Over the past several weeks I've been in the process of downloading these MP3 files. The idea is to listen to the readings while following along in my Greek New Testament. The hope is that in doing so, I will retain what little Greek I still remember from my seminary days so long ago. The downloads are really slow on my dialup connection, but those of you with high speed internet will find the downloads a piece of cake.

Now, where are those Hebrew Old Testament MP3 files?
