BIB 516 Greek for Ministry II

This course continues to build a foundational, conceptual knowledge of basic Greek grammar with the goal of developing greater proficiency in exegesis using the original languages. 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. Students move from text to teaching, leveraging technology in their exegesis of biblical passages and transferring their knowledge into meaningful Bible exposition. (3 credits)
