New Testament Greek by distance education

BL-092/093, New Testament Greek, can meet different goals for different people. Laypeople will gain the ability to read the New Testament in its original language. Pre-seminary students will acquire the competence they need to begin seminary classes. Pastors will refresh their ability to prepare for sermons and Bible classes.
Starting on Tuesday September 4, Concordia Lutheran Seminary is offering an evening course in New Testament Greek. This is a 9-month course being offered by distance education, so you can access it on the internet from anywhere. It meets Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:30 pm (Mountain Time).

In addition to these two “live” class sessions every week, led by the instructor, the course relies heavily on students’ independent work using the course’s textbook, workbook, and online materials. The course follows William Mounce’s Basics of Biblical Greek (3rd edition). A syllabus is available upon request.

The course is reasonably priced at $250 per semester. (Church-workers in Lutheran Church-Canada pay even less.) The instructor is adjunct faculty member Alex Marque, a Ph.D. student at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis who specializes in the Greek writings of the early church.

Interested? Contact the Registrar, Anna Yang: ayang@concordiasem.ab.ca or 780.474-1468 ext. 227.

A reciprocal borrowing program for the CLS library

CLS has joined a reciprocal borrowing program through the American Theological Library Association (ALTA). This will be a great help to our distance education students, who can borrow books from participating theological libraries in their own communities. It will also help our local students and faculty members while travelling. If either of these situations pertains to you, check with CLS librarian Anna Yang for details on how to take advantage of this program!
