General Description:

Continuing Greek Reading is a weekly live “zoom-style” class for students desiring to sharpen their skills in reading and understanding the text of the Bible in the original language, with appropriate attention to scribal traditions.  Each quarter is “stand alone,” so one need not to have participated in prior quarters in order to join. (Students entering with Greek studies from other institutions will need to contact the instructor and demonstrate reasonable competency.)

  • 3 hours of preparation per week
  • Weekly live session 1 1/2 hours long
  • Reading from Mark chapter 5 and onwards in Greek
  • During the live class: Reading Greek, translating out loud and discussing features of grammar, syntax, and narrative.
  • Review material and articles provided by the instructor
