Understanding and applying Scripture requires many tools. However, one tool stands above the rest: the biblical languages. Alongside OT Hebrew, biblical Greek is vital for anyone who desires to dig deep into the biblical text, teach it and apply it to the life of the Church. This course introduces the basic grammar, syntax and vocabulary of biblical Greek, preparing the learner to translate, interpret and apply Scripture. Dr Mounce treats the language primarily as a tool for ministry and skillfully minimizes memory work by emphasizing how the language works. Students begin working with the biblical text immediately and find numerous illustrations of the benefits of Greek that will motivate them for this study and for a lifetime of insight.
