New Testament Greek B

We have an embarrassing wealth of English resources to help us read and interpret the Bible, making it possible to interpret Scripture well without learning the languages it was originally written in. But studying Greek enables you to grow in your understanding of the biblical text and the context in which it was written, and to get the most out of detailed commentaries. This subject will help you find answers to questions like: Why might we favour one Bible translation over another? and, How can we determine which of two or three interpretations is the most convincing? The study of Greek vocabulary and grammar will also give you insight into cross-cultural issues, focus and improve your comprehension of a passage, and help structure your sermons and Bible studies.
