New Testament Greek

Instructor
Krentz

Studying the New Testament gives students an opportunity to (1) read in the original Greek the collection of books and letters that is the most frequently read of all ancient texts today; (2) learn about the history of the Greek language as it spread throughout the eastern Mediterranean after Alexander the Great's conquests; (3) study and practice the principles of textual criticism, principles that apply to editing any ancient text, as we read a text that has a richer manuscript tradition than any Classical text, with more than 5,700 manuscripts.

This year we will begin with the book of Acts, a narrative about the spread of Christianity into the Greco-Roman world, before sampling the gospels, the letters, and the apocalyptic book of Revelation.
