This course is designed to introduce the pastor to the basic elements of the Greek language in terms of noun and verb morphology, syntax, and the application of the grammar and syntax to the practice of exegesis. The elements of the Exegetical Method for the study of the New Testament will be explored as well as their practice. Topics to be considered will include: the use of the Exegetical tools, text criticism, lexicography and grammar, exegetical consideration of the different genres in the New Testament and several hermeneutic issues and perspectives with current New Testament studies. In addition, considerable time will be devoted to the use of the New Testament Greek and exegesis in the preparation of sermons and teaching.
What Others Have Thought:
"I had no formal Greek training and I entered the course with much fear and anxiety. From the first day I was delighted to learn there was a simpler way to learn the language and to apply it to my ministry context."
"Dr. Hintzoglou was one of the most positive and pastoral professors I have met. He cares about his students, is passionate about what he teaches and it is infectious. I loved this class!"
students will write an exegetical paper on a New Testament passage as approved by the instructor.
