NT252: Greek Language 2

Thursday Afternoon (Online Only)

This course is the second part of a beginner’s introduction to Koine Greek. In this regard, students will continue their study of morphology, vocabulary, and syntax, with a focus on recognition and translation rather than linguistics and composition. This will help students to develop their reading comprehension as well as to gain further proficiency in the use of important exegetical resources. Most importantly, the course will attempt to instil a true love for Koine Greek and provide a well-equipped starting point from which to commence a lifelong journey of growth and discovery.

BT605: Introduction to Biblical Theology

Monday 7.30-9.30pm (Online Only)

Introduction to Biblical Theology gives the big picture of how the whole Bible, in all its diverse parts and genres, fits together as a unified whole. We look at how Christ—his life, death, and resurrection— is the centre of God's eternal plan. Understanding the big picture helps us know how to receive God’s word in the Old Testament as Christian believers, and it allows us to locate ourselves in the story of what God is doing from beginning to end.

BT644: The Old Testament Writings with a focus on Psalms
TUTORED ONLY

Day and Time: TBC (Online Only)

This paper will introduce a section of the Old Testament that is known for its diverse grouping of books as well as its rich application of biblical theology. Indeed, from before the time of the Babylonian exile, the Writings have helped God’s people to worship rightly, live wisely, and hope steadfastly. As such, these books will not only lead us on an exciting exploration of different literary genres but will also offer us a semester-long opportunity to be saturated in worshipful wisdom and Christ-centred theology.

NT252: Hebrew Language 2

Wednesday 7-9pm (Online Only)

In OT152 Biblical Hebrew Language II, you will study more of the morphology, vocabulary and syntax of Biblical Hebrew. As in the first semester, the goal is to enable you to understand the text as fast as possible. The focus is, therefore, on recognition and translation rather than linguistics and composition. As a distinctive of the course, the lessons will emphasize progressive comprehensible input, text repetition and oral review, bringing you to the point that you can comfortably begin reading and understanding the book of Ruth.
