Explore the diverse texts and language of the Greek New Testament in this week-long Summer School.

Suitable for students who are working at post-beginner level or above, or those who have studied New Testament Greek in the past, this week will explore the language, grammar and texts of selections of the Greek New Testament.  

As well as exploring the profound truth received today in the New Testament, this week specifically aims at appreciating the beauty and diverse style of the writers of the original Greek text: from the plain beauty of Mark to the rhetorical intricacy of Hebrews. Selections from the Gospels, the Pauline Epistles, Hebrews, the Catholic Epistles and finally the Book of Revelation will form a structure for the week. During the week there will be help with grammar and vocabulary.

The selection will be taken in part from the JACT : New Testament Greek Reader, and you may wish to purchase a copy as it contains helpful vocabulary. The full selection will also available in a pdf and a print out closer to the time.
