Reading Biblical Greek


Course Outline

The learning approach in the Reading Biblical Greek course revolves around three core elements: grammar, vocabulary, and reading and translation.


Grammar. The grammar consists of micro-lessons, which break up information in small, digestible chunks. Each micro-lesson addresses a single point. This arrangement makes for easy comprehension and review. New learning is incremental and recursive—each new piece builds on and reinforces prior learning.


Vocabulary. As an essential complement to grammar, vocabulary is introduced at strategic points and is arranged first by what the student has been learning in grammar, and then by frequency.


Reading and Translation. The goal of this course is to enable students to read and translate the Greek of the New Testament. Thus, the content is structured and tied to a specific Greek text to enable reading as soon as possible. The student will have read and translated the whole of Mark 1–4 by the end of the course.


While Reading Biblical Greek only introduces students to information that is essential to grasp the fundamentals of the Greek language, it is informed by the latest and best of Greek and linguistic scholarship, enabling students to move seamlessly into further study.

By completing this course, you'll gain:

  • familiarity with the basic rules of New Testament Greek grammar
  • a basic grasp of beginning-level Greek vocabulary
  • experience in applying grammar and vocabulary lessons to actual translation
  • confidence in your growing knowledge through unit assessments and personalized review sessions that include award-winning memory building tools

Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics


Course Outline

For seminary students, pastors, and others seeking to learn biblical Greek, the goal of studying Greek grammar is accurate exegesis of biblical texts. Sound exegesis requires that a student consider grammar within a larger framework including context, lexeme, and other linguistic features. While the trend of some grammarians has been to take a purely grammatical approach to language learning, the Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics course integrates the technical requirements for proper Greek interpretation with the actual interests and needs of Bible students.


Systematically linking syntax and exegesis of the New Testament for second-year Greek students, professor and textual critic Daniel B. Wallace explores numerous syntactical categories, some of which are not covered in other Greek studies. This course equips students with the necessary skills to do exegesis of biblical texts in a way that is faithful to their intended meaning.

By completing this course, you'll gain:

  • greater familiarity with the syntax of New Testament Greek
  • insight into employing knowledge of Greek grammar, vocabulary, and syntax in sound exegesis
  • a deeper grasp of the meaning of Greek New Testament passages than first-year Greek studies can provide
  • confidence in your growing knowledge through unit assessments and personalized review sessions that include award-winning memory building tools
