Greek Study Club Announcement

Some friends and I are starting a Greek Study Club. We will be studying NT Greek on Tuesday nights at 6:00 p.m. at our church’s meeting place. (See this map for directions.)

If you do not know NT Greek but want to learn, you are invited to join us! We will be using Dave Black’s Learn to Read New Testament Greek as an introductory textbook. Each week, you will have access to several people who know Greek and who can help you understand the lesson for that week. If you follow the assigned readings and exercises, you should be able to begin reading your Greek NT within a few months.

If you already know NT Greek and would like to improve your skills with the language, then you are also invited to join us! We will discuss a book of the NT, beginning with 2 John (since it’s a shorter book). We will begin with translation, but we will not stop there. We will also talk about semantic, grammatical, linguistic, and discourse features of the letter, always with a desire to disciple one another as we study the Greek language and Scripture. (Please bring any reference materials with you: i.e. beginning, intermediate, or advanced grammars; lexicons; and linguistic books.)

We have set up a Facebook page for the study club. If you are interested in being part of this Greek Study Club (and are in the Wake Forest/Youngsville, NC area – or are willing to drive), then please join the Facebook page, or send me an email at aknox@sebts.edu.
