The aim of this course is to bring students a working facility with the Greek New Testament. Its primary objective is to enable students to read and exegete the original sacred text, to their profit and that of their hearers. In keeping with this goal, exercises and readings will be taken almost exclusively from Scripture, and students will begin exegesis as soon as a very fundamental knowledge of the language allows.
As the Lord in his providence has preserved His Word over the centuries, so He has preserved the knowledge of the Biblical languages, that His Church may continue to rightly divide the Word of Truth. To each generation is given the joyous privilege and responsibility of learning the ancient languages of Scripture. It is especially needful in this time of cultural decline and famine for the Word, that we equip the next generation to faithfully hold forth the Word of Life.
The course is open to students in good standing 15 years of age and older, and adults. Exceptions to the minimum age limit will be considered on a case by case basis. The course is 4 semesters, and the tuition is $150 per semester. Class size is limited to 12 students, first come, first served. Initial enrollment of up to 15 students is accepted, in consideration of probable attrition. Tuition is refundable if the student drops within the first 2 weeks of the semester. Scholarships will be considered on a case by case basis. Specific inquiries about this course may be made to the instructor at
