Course Description

Academic Description: This course focuses on a selection of readings from the Greek Old Testament, Greek New Testament, and other Greek writings of the Hellenistic and Roman periods, along with some elements of advanced grammar and vocabulary. Syllabus/Outline Content: The syllabus will change from session to session but will incorporate a range of koine Greek texts. These typically involve a selection from the Septuagint (LXX), the Greek New Testament, the Apostolic Fathers, the Apologists, and other early Christian writers, with a focus on the New Testament Apocryphal Gospels and other non-canonical texts. Student Learning Experience Information: There is a two-hour seminar each week. Students will read a section of text in Greek, and offer their own translation. They will then be asked to parse various Greek terms, to explain grammatical constructions, and to offer reflections on text-critical matters.
