In this course we will explore the Gospel of John using an interlinear bible, in which both the English text and the original Greek appear. We’ll explore how to better understand what is happening in the gospel, and the message of the gospel, by gaining insight into how the original language is different enough (e.g., in how verbs work, in how what a “case” system for nouns reveals about what is being described) to allow us to see an otherwise familiar message in new lights. And we’ll also be able to dive more deeply into John’s Gospel by studying it systematically.
To participate in this course will not require any prior study of Greek. You won’t need to know the first thing about Greek. The insights we’ll gain will be gained together on the bases of resources used together and discussion engaged in together. Join us, to know this gospel to a new depth.
