Course Summary

An introduction to the grammar and vocabulary of the Greek New Testament, with selected readings.

Course Description

Academic Description: The course offers an introduction to the language of the New Testament - koine Greek. It is taught intensively, with four contact hours per week, and covers both grammar and vocabulary. Passages from the Greek New Testament are introduced from the very beginning, and by the end of the course students will be able to tackle simple passages themselves. Syllabus/Outline Description:The course uses J. Duff's The Elements of New Testament Greek (CUP, 2005). We shall work through two chapters each week, with input from the course tutor and plenty of opportunity for worked examples (either individually or in groups). Regular vocabulary tests will reinforce class learning and ensure that students are ready for the next stage. Student Learning Experience Information: The course meets four times a week in a friendly, informal setting. The course tutor will explain new grammar, but students are encouraged to ask questions and to engage actively with their own learning. There is an expectation that students will go over each class carefully in their own time, committing to memory new grammatical forms and vocabulary. Class participants will demonstrate their achievement of the intended learning outcomes through class tests and the final in-class exam.
