New Testament Greek A

AQF: 6/8 on-campus

SEMESTER 1 2022
Monday + Thursday Daytime Unit

LA005-612/812

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 begins with an intensive on the mornings of 24-25th and 27-28th of January, which will greatly assist in making the start of the study of Greek more manageable. It is highly recommended that students familiarise themselves with the first 5 chapters of David Alan Black’s 'Learn to Read New Testament Greek' prior to the intensive.
For anyone not able to attend the intensive, we offer an alternative day stream (if available), or the off-campus Monday evening stream. These two streams begin with the Greek alphabet, (Chapter 1 of Black), but move at a faster pace through the semester. It is highly recommended that students familiarise themselves with as much of the first 4 chapters of Black as possible prior to the commencement of these streams.
