An Introduction to New Testament Greek
Ashton Hayes - 04/09/2012
This new course will begin in September 2012. It is aimed at clergy, readers and others who would like to learn the basics of reading the New Testament in its original Greek.
No previous knowledge of Greek is required. It will consist of 20 sessions (with a break for tea/coffee). These will be split into two semesters of 10 weeks. Participants could choose to do just the first semester. No compulsory tests or exams - it will be challenging but fun!
