The course will help the students to deepen their knowledge of NT Greek morphology, vocabulary and syntax in order to read the NT in its original language.

They will also have to work through some texts out of class. The students’ progress will be examined by frequent quizzes. Learning Outcomes: • The students, by obtaining a higher level of understanding of the various elements of the language, will exercise the skill of translating from Greek to English and from English to Greek.
