In each of four six-week modules the student will learn the basics of New Testament Greek with a small group of fellow-learners. The course will be limited to five students, taught at a convenient, central location. Courses are forming now.
Your teacher is Dr. Liam Atchison, who has taught college and seminary Greek since 1984, and has taught the History of Ancient Greece at Kansas State University. This is an exceptional learning opportunity with small classes in a relational atmosphere with close personal attention from an experienced teacher.
This is a course in which you will be involved in the exciting process of learning to read ancient Greek. The journey will seem arduous at times, but the labor--shared with others--of learning the language will bring about fresh ways to see the Scriptures--and the world in which we live. The outcome of the Greek courses will be a basic reading facility of what is called Koine, or common, Greek, but the shared journey that brings you to that end should prove to be unforgettable. You will concentrate on learning to read Greek, and will be aided by learning grammar—not just Greek grammar, but the grammar in general we didn't catch as schoolkids—and upon translating what we read to English. With a small community of people in the same boat as you (wanting to learn Greek but just a little intimidated by foreign languages), you will learn your way around the myriad Greek tools that are indispensable for New Testament study, but more than that you will be poised for a lifetime of the joy of reading the New Testament text.
