Thanks! I don’t understand why he has, on the table of contents, a section on history of koine Greek if he’s not using that pronunciation.  Anyway, I’ll pass on this one.

He is referring to the history of the language called koine Greek and not the pronunciation choice, they are different things.

But I agree I'm pass on this, I can watch these videos on Master Lectures. Would be ok with picking up the textbook if it was included in a future Z Ultimate Collection.

I don't think we can actually know how ancient languages were pronounced, can we?

Not really hence why there three approaches to Biblical Greek that I am aware about and there were possibly variations back then and not one set way etched in stone or on papyrus so to speak. If you think about English today around the globe, within our countries, between our Northern and Southern or Eastern or Western states / provinces. etc there are variations on how we pronounce certain words.  A pronunciation scheme simply allows us in our times to have a common accepted way to communicate with one another about biblical Greek or Hebrew or whatever the ancient language we are talking about / attempting to speak out loud.
