Walter Roberts, IIIAdjunct Professor

This is the third quarter of a three-quarter sequence of introductory study of Koine Greek (NT Greek). This course will focus on the details and nuances of biblical exegesis by reading in Greek an entire NT epistle, Ephesians, from beginning to end.

Up to this point students have been reading examples of NT Greek in sentences and paragraphs. As the final quarter of the three-quarter sequence, emphasis is now placed on giving the student the experience of reading NT Greek in the context of an entire letter. Special attention will be given to strengthening the student’s understanding of vocabulary, grammar, and syntax, as well as learning to read complex theological arguments in Greek from beginning to end.
