Explore passages of the New Testament in this week long summer school, and delve further into your knowledge of NT Greek. 

This course will explore a selection of passages from the Greek New Testament. To aid full comprehension, there will be a keen focus on 'literal translation', with participants invited (though not dragooned!) to read aloud a portion of the text and provide a rendering into literal English; class discussion will follow as we consider the nuances of the Greek in each passage, how these have been rendered in translation and what significance, if any, these have on our overall understanding of the text and New Testament, more broadly.

Texts: John 1.1-14; Mark 2-5; Matthew 5-7; Romans 4-6; 1 Corinthians 12-15; James 1 and 2.

These can be found in New Testament Greek: A Reader (Reading Greek), CUP, 2001, 978-0521654470. Students are advised to purchase a copy of this book.
