Details for New Testament Greek 2

New Testament Greek 2 builds on from Greek 1 to give you a solid foundation for your knowledge of Biblical Greek. This unit rounds out a full year of Greek study and will equip you with a good working knowledge of Greek grammar, and it is from this basis that you can launch into more advanced syntactical and exegetical study of the New Testament texts. Greek 2, in a way, puts ‘wheels’ on your study of Greek, as we come to see more fully the beauty of the Greek verbal system and its significance for understanding the original texts.
