BIB 515 Greek for Ministry I

This course is a study of the basic principles of biblical Greek, including basic grammar, vocabulary, and the utilization of significant Greek tools in New Testament exegesis. Pastors and other Christian servant-leaders benefit from a working knowledge of New Testament Greek in all areas of ministry. Since this course is geared towards using New Testament Greek in ministry, students will hone and deepen their study of God's Word in this class from the first week to the last. As their knowledge of Greek grows, their incorporation of it in exegesis will increase as well. Through the use of Bible software, a number of helpful tools are introduced, demonstrated, and practiced throughout the course. These tools will greatly aid students of the New Testament as they prepare sermons and Bible studies in their various ministry settings. (3 credits)
