Biblical Greek has been an integral part of theological education around the world as it helps the student to study and exegete the New Testament in its original language. The Intermediate Greek Course will encompass a revision of Greek I, study of the Greek  parts of speech, key sections of the Biblical Greek Grammar, Syntax and Greek Vocabulary. The students will be able to read, write and translate portions of the New Testament at the intermediate level during and  on completion of the course.


At the end of the course, students should be able to:


  • Have an intermediate level knowledge of the Biblical Greek Language as found in the New Testament, including vocabulary, grammar and syntax. 
  • This will aid in breaking down the text and translating it at the Intermediate Level and also to lay the foundations for the Advanced Level of Biblical Greek leading to the Greek Exegesis level. 


  • Read, write and translate some New Testament verses from its original language into English at the Intermediate Level.


  • Their commitment to learning Biblical Greek at the Intermediate level will help them to identify and better communicate the nuances found in the NT text of the original language. The student will be able to arrive at the intended  meaning of the text through a more in-depth study of the biblical text and teach and serve more excellently.

 Academic Integrity

Integrity in academic work is required of all our students. Academic dishonesty is any breach of this integrity and includes such practices as cheating (the use of unauthorized material on tests and examinations), submitting the same work for different classes without permission of the instructors; using false information (including false references to secondary sources) in an assignment; improper or unacknowledged collaboration with other students, and plagiarism.


Global Classroom takes seriously its responsibility to uphold academic integrity, and to penalize academic dishonesty.

Global Classroom values quality in the courses it offers its students. End-of-course evaluations provide valuable student feedback and are one of the ways that Global Classroom works towards maintaining and improving the quality of courses and the student’s learning experience. Student involvement in this process is critical to enhance the general quality of teaching and learning.

Before the end of the course, students will receive an email with a link to the online course evaluation. The link can also be found in the left column on the course page. The evaluation period is 2 weeks; after the evaluation period has ended, it cannot be reopened.

Course Evaluation results will not be disclosed to the instructor before final grades in the course have been submitted and processed. Student names will be kept confidential and the instructor will only see the aggregated results of the class.


We anticipate our students to have varied viewpoints which will enrich the discussions in our learning community. Therefore, we ask our students to be charitable and respectful in their interactions with each other, and to remain focused on the topic of discussion, out of respect to others who have committed to being a part of this learning community.


The readings can be found as PDF files on the course web page at under “Materials”.
