Would you like to strengthen your New Testament Greek skills?

Seattle Presbytery

Study group for rebuilding skills in New Testament Greek

Dear friends,

A bunch of us are meeting twice a month with an extremely effective Greek teacher. We are finding that not only is our Greek improving, but we are also enjoying the whole thing.

Our teacher, Rene Williams,  has taught Greek and Hebrew at Fuller for three decades. She has a great sense of humor, explains things extremely well, and makes us feel that we are capable of learning whatever Greek we want to learn.

Since April five of us (plus Renee) have been working through various NT passages verse by verse. Renee sends emails in advance to help us with the passages.

In the meeting, we talk about the verses and she gives further information to help us figure it out. 

This method works well for people like me (who have a long way to go) but it also seems to be very valuable for the ones who know more. It is a great format for teaching people with different levels of understanding. The two hours feel like one hour.

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays.

Up through the second Tuesday of September (9/12) we are meeting from 6pm-8.

Starting on the 4th Tuesday of September (9/26) we will be meeting from 3:30 to 5:30, since the Hebrew class will be going from 6pm through 9:30 (which, by the way, any of us can audit. It is free if you went to Fuller, and for the rest of us it is $240.00. See their website).

We meet in a class room at Fuller (two blocks south of Northgate).

Cost:  I put my hat on one of the tables. People put into it what they decide to and it goes to Renee. Fuller donates the space. 

If you have studied NT Greek in the past, we would love to have you join us. Please email me and I will give you further information: alanbrucebeasley@gmail.com.  Also please email me if you can’t do it right now, but want to do it in the future.

God bless,

Alan Beasley
