In Greek 1, students will begin to acquire communication skills in Biblical Greek as well as strengthening their reading comprehension, writing, and vocabulary skills. Through the reading selections and class discussions, students will learn not only about the language of Jesus’ time period, but also the culture behind the texts. By the end of the course, students will be able to read selected verses and texts from the New Testament in its original language. Beyond an introductory knowledge of Greek, students will have an appreciation for the New Testament and the cultural context in which it was written.
Note: We will add a course each year, starting with Greek 1. Our plan is to add Greek 2 next year, culminating with AP Greek in future years.
