Course Information

This course is designed to introduce absolute beginners to reading the exciting Koine Greek of the New Testament. In Part 1, we learn the Greek alphabet and how to pronounce the basic vocabulary needed to read the Bible. We read selections from the first epistle of John, including 1 John 4:8 — ὁ θεὸς ἀγάπη ἐστίν (“God is love”).

This course [New Testament Greek — Part 1: “God is Love” — ὁ θεὸς ἀγάπη ἐστίν] prepares you to continue on with two sequels allowing you to read much more New Testament Greek:

  • New Testament Greek — Part 2: “The Word was God” — θεὸς ἦν ὁ λόγος  [we begin reading more substantial excerpts from the New Testament Greek of all four Gospels]
  • New Testament Greek — Part 3: “Blessed are the Peacemakers” — μακάριοι οἱ εἰρηνοποιοί [we conclude by reading the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:3–10)]

How Courses Work

All of our courses are offered via online live attendance (using free webinar software, for which we provide a link). Each course is six weeks long, meeting online once a week on the same day at the same time. The weekly sessions run 90 minutes: 45 minutes for presentation and 45 minutes for Q&R. A maximum of 15 students will be randomly selected to participate in the Q&R sessions (system-generated). If a student misses a course session, the talk/lecture will still be available online for 60 days, but the live chat room interaction will not be available.
