Biblical Languages: Greek (GRK) and Hebrew (HEB)

GRK 510NE

Biblical Greek     

Credits: 3

This course takes a unique approach to introducing New Testament Greek to those preparing for ministry in the 21st century. A basic assumption underlying this approach to the introduction of New Testament Greek is that the student’s goal is not to teach Greek as a scholar, but to use it in the study of the New Testament as a minister. The focus in this course is on gaining a conceptual understanding of New Testament Greek, not on memorizing all the paradigms, specific details, “rules”, and “exceptions” involved. Students will be required to memorize a basic vocabulary.

 

GRK 595NE

Students do reading or exegesis of Greek under the direction of a faculty member.

[Prerequisite: advisor and instructor approval required]

 

GRK 610NE

Biblical Greek II

This course will focus primarily on a selection of readings in Greek texts, representing different New Testament authors and books.
