“New Testament Greek and Theology Group with Rev. Dr. Kang Yup-Na”
Do you like discussing theology that arises out of translating the Greek New Testament? Do you wanna brush up on your NT Greek? Haven’t done NT Greek in awhile, but want to get back into it? If yes to any of these, then there is a place for you to join others who share your interest.
Our group would like to invite you to join us as we begin to translate John’s Gospel and Letters and more. Do not be intimidated if you have not done Greek in awhile. You can learn or re-learn at your own pace (without exams) through the inductive method, learning and reviewing as you translate, using your own resources acquired through the years or by getting a group recommended workbook to aid you. We meet for about 90 minutes every other Friday at Westminster College, taking the summer and December off. We have guided teaching and discussion by Dr. Na. Our group has been meeting to re-learn NT Greek through the deductive method for almost 2 years, but found that we were always enriched more as we began to translate John’s Gospel and discuss the theology that arose out of those translations. We plan to begin again in February. There is no cost for joining the group. All are welcome.
