About This Class
This class utilizes four ways of interaction in order to immerse our students in the biblical language. 1) Each student will participate in a weekly online live class. This class is done through a conferencing software in which the teacher can see and hear each student and the students can see and interact with their teacher and other participants. 2) Each week students will watch a 30-60 minute video on the chapter they will be covering that week. 3) Students will read the chapter assigned each week from the Basics of Biblical Greek by William Mounce. 4) Students will be required to complete weekly reading and audio assignments that are then uploaded and graded by the teacher.
This is the first Quarter of a three quarter course beginning Greek Grammar, beginning with the alphabet and covering the basics of biblical Greek. These three classes must be taken in order. We are utilizing the course taught by William Mounce via DVD, which is based upon Mounce’s textbook and workbook.

This is the critical Greek text that will be used for all Greek studies at TRI. It is not required for the 1st Qtr of Beginning Greek Grammar, but will be required for the 2nd and 3rd Qtrs.
Please note: The UBS Greek New Testament – Student Edition is the same Greek text, but does not include the critical apparatus. It does, include, however, a running dictionary at the bottom of each page which lists definitions of Greek words found in the text that are used 30 times or less. This edition may be helpful for students, but the edition that includes the critical apparatus will be required for advanced Greek studies at TRI.
