Elementary New Testament Greek
1:30pm-3:30pm Tuesday and Thursday
This course is an introduction to ancient Greek grammar and vocabulary for the purpose of reading and translating the Greek New Testament. This course exposes students to the Greek New Testament (GNT) as soon as they have learned the alphabet, teaching them the language in context, and continues to immerse students in the GNT, reinforcing grammar and vocabulary. At the same time, students will be introduced to and expected to master the relevant grammar and the 400-500 of the most frequently-used vocabulary words in the New Testament. Students will move between reading the GNT, learning the grammar, and memorizing vocabulary, along with engaging in disciplines that will promote use of Greek following completion of the course. This course is intensive, and requires commitment and dedication of time to complete. It is also recommended that it be followed by an intermediate course in the fall to retain the language skills learned in a short time period.
This course will be in-person only.
