Biblical Greek 1 is a LIVE ONLINE Term 2 2023 FULL COURSE held virtually on Zoom on Six Thursdays: Dec 7, 14, 21, Jan 11, 18, 25 from 7:00–8:30pm EST. Once you register for this course, log into your MSI account, choose this course in 'My Courses', and you will find the Zoom link in the Course Contents along with all the course materials as they are shared.

Beginning Biblical Greek grammar with an emphasis on vocabulary, nouns, adjectives, the article, prepositions, and the verb εἰμί covering chapters 5–9 in the most widely accepted textbook and workbook in the world. This course utilizes insights and mnemonic (memory) devices that were developed over the course of many years of teaching Biblical Greek at Ashland and Capital University. The Biblical Greek course series at MSI could be called "Mounce Made Easier".

This course has a pre-recorded video and live online component to help lifelong learners master Greek grammar. The pre-recorded video lectures must be viewed before class each week. The related chapters in Mounce must also be read before class each week. This will allow us time to discuss the material, work through questions, and explain workbook exercises that you will have already completed. Note that some chapters have no workbook exercises, but most do.

Rewatch the lecture videos as necessary to master the material for each week. The live online component will provide lifelong learners the opportunity to ask questions and clarify any confusion. Repetition is the key to learning, so both components are vital to create a strong foundation that will enable you to succeed in our subsequent Biblical Greek courses.

This MSI LIVE ONLINE course meets LIVE via Zoom on six Thursdays.
Please remember to watch the videos before each class session! We encourage you to follow the schedule closely and plan ahead to be with us for these hybrid courses (watch prerecorded videos and then attend a live online class) so you can get the most out of lifelong learning with MSI.
