Too often we forget that the New Testament is not an English book of the twenty-first century. This module provides an introduction to New Testament Greek and the different ways of thinking that formed the mindset of its writers. It quickly introduces John's gospel in the original koine Greek and is a mixture of learning through reading and formal study of the language. For those who don't wish to undertake formal study, the first 8 weeks are accessible to everyone as a "Greek is Fun" course.

Please note: THIS PAGE HAS NOT YET BEEN UPDATED FOR THE NEW COURSE nevertheless the old course is fairly similar.

What is this Module all about?

TM106 is a general Introduction to New Testament Greek. It is an optional module not available every year or at every Centre, but can be run on request. The class is taught at University Level One. This Module begins with an eight hour Greek familiarisation course, which quickly introduces real translation from John 3 and the types of resource material that aid translation. This portion of the module is open to people who may not wish to continue with Greek. After the eight hours a more systematic grammar and syntax course commences. Exercises will be rooted in real verses from the New Testament and selected portions of John's gospel will be translated. Click here for:

TM106 Greek Web Resources

You may find the following web sites helpful when studying New Testament Koine Greek. Material on the net has no quality control making tutors very wary - and rightly so! Nevertheless there is a growing amount of first class academic work on line particularly coming from Religious Studies Departments of good Universities. Treat with care and you'll find it very useful for essays.

The Internet is not 100% reliable and documents move, disappear and change their names. If you find a link does not work, try again in an hour, a day, or a week. But do feel free to email us to report a link doesn't work. Don't forget to tell us the name of the link!
