GREK 111 Introduction to Ancient Greek


This coordinated two-semester sequence of courses introduces students to the fundamentals of the ancient Greek language through a sustained and substantial direct engagement with the Bible, both the Septuagint (the Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible and Deuterocanonical books) and the Greek New Testament. In addition to preparing students for Greek 203, the aim of which is the development of intermediate proficiency in the reading, writing, and speaking of Koine Greek, this introductory sequence engages students in a critical examination of personal, social, and cultural values through the academic study of biblical literature.
