New Testament Greek A

AQF: 6/8, off-campus

Monday Evening Unit


Learning to read the New Testament in its original language opens up a richness of understanding of the text, providing fresh insights and nuances that can deepen your love of God's Word, and enhance the faithfulness of teaching and proclamation.

In this unit you are introduced to and given experience in reading the language in which the New Testament was written. This prepares you to read straightforward parts of the Greek New Testament for yourself, and to be equipped to consult New Testament commentaries based on the Greek text, and to read books which discuss or refer to Greek words, expressions, grammar and their meanings.

New Testament Greek is a prerequisite for studying New Testament units with Greek exegesis in the Bachelor of Theology, Bachelor of Divinity and Master of Divinity. It is generally best to study this subject in the year prior to doing Greek exegesis units. Please contact the College if you’re unsure about the best progression for you.

Note: This unit begins with the Greek alphabet, (Chapter 1 of David Alan Black’s 'Learn to Read New Testament Greek'). It is highly recommended that students familiarise themselves with as much of the first four chapters of Black as possible prior to the commencement of the course.
