Course description: The class is geared towards the learning the basic
aspects of New Testament Greek morphology and syntax. Particular attention
is going to aid the students to learning the inflections of the Greek
Language. An inflection is an alteration of the words which adds suffixes or
prefixes to the word-roots in order to indicate grammatical features such as
person, number, case, mood, aspect and tense. The inflection of the nouns
and adjectives is called declension. On the other hand, the inflection of the
verbs is called conjugation. Because Biblical Greek involves a very specific
set of vocabulary and a very specific set of grammar rules, students must
practice and learn them by memory in order to master the tools of the language.
Course objectives: As the original language of the New Testament,

important terms of the NT and is able to discern their inherence for the NT.
