Greek Without Learning Greek

Greek Without Learning Greek

by the Rev. Peter Rodgers, Vicar of St. Andrew's, Antelope and Supervising Pastor at the Center for Bible Study

The Center for Bible Study will be offering an ongoing course entitled “Greek Without Learning Greek.” It is intended for anyone who is eager to gain (or re-gain) familiarity with the language of the New Testament.

The course will meet from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoons at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Antelope. It will be taught by the Rev. Peter Rodgers, Vicar of St. Andrew’s, Antelope and Professor of Greek at Fuller Theological Seminary, Sacramento Campus, and assisted by others.

The first course will be held on Sunday, August 3, 2014 at St. Andrew's, Antelope. Those wishing to join at a later date will have an opportunity to do so, since there will be a fresh introduction to the alphabet, accents and breathings on every first Sunday of the month. This course will be held every Sunday at 5:00 p.m. at St. Andrew's, Antelope.

A brief worship service will follow each class, beginning at 6:00 p.m. Those taking the course are asked to consider a $10.00 donation which will help to support the work of the Center for Bible Study at St. Andrew’s, Antelope.

The course may be especially helpful for clergy who desire a refresher course, to regain something of the Greek they learned in seminary, but have since not kept up. It is also intended for anyone who desires to deepen their understanding of the New Testament through some familiarity with the language in which it was written.

Most of the class time will be spent actually reading the Greek New Testament. The course will include a focus on some important New Testament words, and a look at “the treasures of the Greek New Testament.” The goal is to help people to a facility in using the many resources and study helps that engage with the Greek text, without learning the many fine points of grammar. It is intended to be a non-pressurized, enjoyable opportunity to read the Greek New Testament together.
