Master an Ancient Greek book of your choosing. Ex: New Testament, Greek Septuagint, extra-biblical literature. Apocrypha & Pseudepigrapha

Methodology

We will read and analyze the text together, word-by-word.

I utilize several scholarly resources that discuss important aspects of understanding the text. Grammar and syntax, textual critical issues, original manuscripts, exegetical insights, larger literary significance and context, and (where applicable) alternative translations (either ancient or modern) are all crucial for understanding the text. Reading the text itself and just knowing the Greek is only the start.

Hours of preparation and research will be condensed into each lesson.

The student will be given many resources and will be able to reflect on ideas with the teacher.

Learning strategies for memorizing words and passages will be available.

Set goal for verses / passages to be covered in each lesson. However, this may be adjusted to give more time for specific passages of interest that have more background behind them, or for students who are slower.

Students may choose to focus on one particular aspect of mastery of the book chosen, or may choose to exclude discussion of some aspects. For example, more time can be spent on vocabulary and grammar, than on discussing textual criticism and manuscripts, or vise versa.


Alternative option : Specific Manuscript Study

More advanced students may instead choose to study only one specific manuscript copy of a book of their interest. For example, instead of studying the entirety of LXX Tobit from a standardized or critical text, the student can choose to study only Codex Sinaiticus’ Tobit. Another example: instead of studying all of John, the student can choose to only study Papyrus 66.

In the SMS plan, actual images of the manuscript and transcriptions will be consulted, and the scope of the learning will be different. Instead of analyzing larger literary context, more technical and textual problems will be discussed, such as orthography and scribal mistakes.

Background

I am a Biblical languages major. But Ancient Greek is more than a course, it is a lifestyle which we should all undertake. Either formally or independently.
