Koine Greek I - BL5101



James WaddellAssociate Professor of Biblical Studies
Kenneth E. HarrisPresident and Professor of Biblical Studies

This is the first quarter of a three-quarter sequence of introductory study of Koine Greek (NT Greek). This course will focus on the mastery of vocabulary and the basic rules of Koine Greek syntax and grammar.

Some memorization of paradigms for nouns, verbs, adjectives, and other parts of speech will be required. Emphasis, however, will be placed on learning to recognize forms rather than rote reproduction of forms. The primary objective is to build confidence and competence in the reading and consistent use of the Greek text of the New Testament.
