BIB562 Seminar In Greek Exegesis: Philippians

Our next seminar in Greek exegesis course begins on February 6, 2017. This time we'll be in Paul's letter to the Philippians. The focus will be on you––the student––acquiring the skills to better study a New Testament text. Students will do textual analyses in Philippians, they'll wrestle with significant lexemes and the issues surrounding the meaning intended by Paul in the contexts in which they are found, and there will be lots and lots and lots of syntax, etc. You won't get a list of paradigms in this class, and you won't get a seemingly infinite list of syntactical categories. In fact, you won't even get a single list of syntactical categories. We learn New Testament Greek best when we don't study New Testament Greek, but rather when we study the text of the New Testament, focusing on the issues in the text as they arise. This is a "do" type of course, not a sit-down-shut-up-and-listen type of course. We want our students to walk out of the course prepared to do with any book of the New Testament what they learn to do with this one. Get ready. Get set. See you in the course!
