The Undergraduate Certificate in Biblical Greek moves from an introduction to Koine Greek to study in grammar, syntax and vocabulary to grammatical translation, exegisis and intrepretative precision. The program is equivalent to four semesters of Greek study at a Bible college or seminary. Certificate graduates will be able to do exegesis from the Greek New Testament, utilize secondary sources, be conversant with exegetical tools, and interpret the scriptures from a missional perspective.
The student who lives missionally in the world must be biblically grounded. Biblical foundation is established by encountering and engaging the biblical text on its terms. This underscores the need to understand approaches to reading and studying Scripture, its languages, its genres, and its message of redemption. Students who complete the Undergraduate Certificate in Biblical Greek will have mastery of Koine Greek grammar and vocubulary, develop competence in reading and translating selected New Testament texts, and develop skills in analyzing and exegeting the Greek New Testament.
