  • Course

Contents: Greek II is intended to deepen the knowledge acquired in
Greek I. The class will cover all the conjugation omega verbs by studying
the thematic verb (lÚw) “to loose.” More emphasis is placed on translation
from the Gospel of Mark. Prepositions, Adverbs and invariable words come
to enrich the intense vocabulary covered in this class.

Aims: To be able to read Koiné Greek and to know basic and advanced
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.

Prerequisites: Students must have taken Biblical Greek I, or must
have passed the corresponding Exam for Biblical Greek I.

Final exam: There will be weekly assignments from the textbook.
Three will be weekly vocabulary drills, and a cumulative final examination.
