I recently took a Christian history class with Ken Barnes through Oxford University’s Continuing Ed. I enjoyed the lecture on Charles and John Wesley and the Holy Club. One of the things the “Holy Club,” (their derogatory nickname, a bit like today’s God Squad) did was to read the Bible together in the Koine Greek, Novum Testamentum Graece.
I took some classes in Classical Greek when I was at Oxford, and still retain enough to read Scripture in Koine Greek. I firmly believe it gives one much of the flavour and feel of the original which is lost in translation.
However, being patient and kind, not jealous or boastful, not arrogant or rude is no easier, whether you read the injunction in English, Greek, French or Hindi, and I have just read it in all my four loved languages!!
