Field: Biblical Languages
Unit Code(s): AL2509T
Unit value: 15 points
Level: Undergraduate (level 2)
Delivery mode: Online only
Prerequisites: Successful completion of AL1000P/AL1009T New Testament Greek (or equivalent, with permission of the lecturer)

This unit continues on from AL1009T. It provides further instruction in Greek syntax, grammar and vocabulary, using the same textbook as in the previous semester. About a third of the unit will be devoted to the translation of extended portions of the Greek New Testament, prepared in advance by the students. These selected passages will be studied for syntactical grammatical analysis and translation into English, but also to see how engaging with a biblical text in its original language can assist in its interpretation.

Learning Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this unit, it is expected that students will be able to:

  • translate moderately difficult sentences and passages from NT Greek into English
  • translate fairly simple sentences from English into NT Greek
  • recall and utilise a NT Greek vocabulary which extends beyond common words
  • analyse the grammar and syntax of moderately difficult sentences in NT Greek
  • apply their knowledge of Greek to the exegesis of lengthy NT passages.
  • 10 online quizzes (translation, grammar and syntax exercises), equivalent to 1,000 words (25%)
  • Three time-limited tests (conducted online), equivalent to 1,000 words (25%)
  • Two-hour closed-book written examination under controlled conditions at the end of the semester, equivalent to 2,000 words (50%)
