GRK 501 – Biblical Greek 1
GRK 501 – Biblical Greek 1, a 4 credit hour course of studies in the Masters programs of Reformation Inteternational Theological Seminary.
Course Description: 4 credit hours.
This is the first course in the study of the Koiné Greek in which the New Testament was written. With the aid of 15 audio mp3 lectures on download, a workbook, and a textbook, the student is led through the fundamentals of the language. In this study the student will learn NT Greek grammar and vocabulary as well as translation. Each lesson is built on the materials taught and learned in the preceding Lessons, so the Lessons are cumulative, not isolated. The lectures by Professor Richard Gainer are specifically designed to teach candidates for the Gospel ministry. However, the material is quite suitable for anyone to learn biblical Greek as well. This course is a prerequisite to taking GRK 502 (Biblical Greek 2).
