Greek: The study of Greek provides a tool to unlock the richness of the New Testament and other Greek texts. Students develop skills to apply Greek grammar and rhetorical and semantic principles to these texts in order to read, translate and interpret them against the background of the world in which they originated. In the 3rd year students also read classical Greek authors such as Plato, Homer and the tragedians.
