  Greek Lie: The Koine Language is Greek by Risto Stefov
In Macedonia, Koine was strictly the language of the educated and was used by the court administrators and the international merchants.
While Koine served its purpose in the administrative and commercial circles, other languages, languages of the people, simultaneously also flourished in parallel but in their oral form until they were later codified by Christianity.
Koine evolved as the language of administration and commerce in the entire Eastern Mediterranean and as such belongs to all the people in the Eastern Mediterranean world.

  Koinē - Wikipedia
Het Koinē stamde af van het Attisch, één van de Ionische dialecten, en verschilde hier weinig van.
Koinē is als schrijftaal niet beperkt tot (Joods-)Christelijke teksten: ook invloedrijke auteurs als Polybios (die als eerste een volledig relaas geeft van de opkomst van de macht van Rome), Dio Cassius, Plutarchus en Lucianus van Samosate bedienden zich van deze variant van het Grieks.
Zelfs als bestuurstaal moest het Koinē in het Oostelijke deel van het Keizerrijk niet onderdoen voor het Latijn: Toen Keizer Tiberius het testament van zijn voorganger liet beitelen in de muren van enkele tempels in Klein-Azië, werd de Griekse vertaling er meteen bijgebeiteld.

 Koine Greek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Koine Greek (Κοινὴ Ἑλληνική) is an ancient Greek dialect which marks the second stage in the history of the Greek language.
Even though Koine Greek was shaped during the late Classic Era, the symbolic starting point of the second period of the Greek language (known as Post-Classic) is set at the death of Alexander the Great and the beginning of the Hellenistic era in 323 BC.
Koine Greek was therefore considered a decayed form of Greek that was not worthy of attention.

 Differences Between Classical and Hellenistic Greek
Robertson characterizes Koinê Greek as a later development of Classical Greek, that is, the dialect spoken in Attica (the region around Athens) during the classical period.
Koinê has shorter sentences, more parataxis and less hypotaxis, a sparing use of participles, and a growth in the use of prepositions (although some old ones have died out).
One Classical feature Koinê does not have is the conditional relative clause, in which the indefinite pronoun substitutes for the conditional conjunction.

 *** What Was Koine Greek? ***
Koine Greek was fully a normal language with all the normal patterns and tendencies of any human language.
In general summary, Koine became the BASE for all modern Greek, superseding the classical forms, which already by the first century were being considered separate languages, and by the 3rd century were considered foreign languages.
Koine consolidated in the Roman Empire (Byzantine Empire), centered in Constantinople, in the early Middle Ages.

 GREEK, Modern
For the most part, the Hellenistic Koine, or actually the version of it that took hold in the Byzantine period, was the starting point for the modern dialects, and it is conventional to date the emergence of Modern Greek dialects to about the 10th to 12th centuries (AD).
In the early Koine, the perfect is on the wane and eventually disappears altogether as a category in the late Koine, only to be reconstituted as a category several centuries later in Medieval Greek through a periphrastic construction with 'have' as an auxiliary together with the sole productive remnant of the earlier infinitive.
Aspect continues to be a significant category in the Koine and on into Modern Greek, and owing to the emergence of a periphrastic future with the infinitive, a form which participated in aspectual distinctions, the aoristic/imperfective distinction is extended into the future.

 JIMMY AKIN.ORG: Attic Vs. Koine   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Also, Koine is a generally simplified form, so if you can hack it in Attic, that gives you a big leg up on Koine.
Koine grammar is more simplified, and the New Testament writers are generally more simple in style than classical authors.
Koine is basically just Attic, with the distinctively Attic-dialect features replaced with more "standard" ones from the East Ionic dialects (e.g., the verbs which end in -ttw in Attic will end in -ssw in koine, the form used in most of the other Greek dialects).

 Language of the New Testament
Most of the papyri discovered belong to the period of the koine (the first three centuries BC and AD in round numbers), and with great wealth of illustration they show the life of the common people of the time, whether in Egypt or Herculaneum (the two chief regions represented).
The vernacular koine which has developed into the modern Greek vernacular was itself the direct descendant of the Attic vernacular which had its roots in the vernacular of the earlier dialects.
In syntax the tendency is toward simplicity, to short sentences, the paratactic construction, and the sparing use of particles.
