Greek: The study of Greek provides a tool to unlock the richness of the New Testament, along with other Ancient 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. Students will be introduced to the writings of various Early Christian as well as Classical Greek authors.
