Plato and Aristotle developed their philosophy in the culture and the language of the Greeks. Homer and Sophocles wrote their literary masterworks in this language. Our Western culture is indebted to Greek language and culture more than any other civilization. For Christians, the Greek language is even more significant. All of the New Testament texts were originally written in Greek. And for the earliest Christians, the Old Testament, translated into the Greek language, was their Bible. A basic understanding of the Greek language is therefore essential for any theological training that has proper depth, and this is the purpose for this introductory course in biblical Greek.
