  • Accademic Unit
    Faculty of Theology
  • Course

Contents: 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 Biblical Greek. 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.

Aims: To be able to read basic Koiné Greek and to know basic
morphology and syntax of the Biblical texts with the help of lexica and exegetical
dictionaries; to identify important terms of the NT and to discern
their inherence for the NT.

Method: Our class will engage learning New Testament Greek per
viam deductive and inductive methods of learning. Students must learn
conjugations, declensions and vocabulary using the anamnestic method
for repetitio mater studiorum est.
Final exam: There will be weekly assignments from the textbook.
Three will be weekly vocabulary drills, and a cumulative final examination.
