GREEK 501. Biblical Greek I

3 credit course

Old course number 206-1803

This course is an introduction to the Greek language as it appears in the texts of both the Old and New Testaments. While emphasis will be on the basic morphology of nouns and verbs and most frequently used words in Biblical Greek, the students will also learn all the basic pronouns and prepositions, the three noun declensions, all the tenses in which finite Greek verbs appear, many of the basic rules of Greek syntax, and, finally, the commonly used Greek participle.

This course includes written lectures, audio pronunciation lessons, and online discussions.

Please note: All students are required to download and install Greek fonts to allow for full participation in typing the Greek language in the online courseroom. Instructions will be provided (the downloaded file is "zipped" and will require unpacking with a compression utility such as WinZip or 7-Zip).

In addition, to play the audio files all students must have media player software such as RealPlayer, Windows Media Player, or QuickTime Player, or else have an MP3 player such as an iPod.

It is highly recommended that students have a high-speed Internet connection to allow for downloading the large audio files used in this course.
