AL1/8100P Introduction to New Testament Greek A (1/2)

This compulsory two-day intensive is only for those who intend to enrol in AL1/8100P Introduction to New Testament Greek A. The unit itself will run weekly throughout semester 1 and will introduce students to the original language of the New Testament. It provides sufficient knowledge of the vocabulary, grammar and syntax to enable students to begin to translate and interpret the New Testament from the Greek text. Some attention will also be given to other writings in Greek that were important for early Christians, such as the Septuagint or non-NT Christian texts from the first and second centuries.

Re:Generations – Hobart

If an intergenerational approach is the key to effective ministry with people of all ages, what does it look like in practice? How can it be implemented by local congregations? What can stay the same and what needs to be changed?
