New Testament Greek A

AQF: 6/8 on-campus

Monday + Thursday Daytime 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 your teaching and preaching.

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 that 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 is the first of two intensive Greek units. This Greek course is fast-paced and will require a significant investment of time. To make the early weeks more manageable, it is highly recommended that students learn the Greek alphabet and memorise some vocabulary prior to beginning study.  Preparatory material will be made available upon enrolment.
