Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics Video Lectures
For seminary students, pastors, and others seeking to learn biblical Greek, the goal of studying Greek grammar is accurate exegesis of biblical texts. Sound exegesis requires that a student consider grammar within a larger framework including context, lexeme, and other linguistic features. While the trend of some grammarians has been to take a purely grammatical approach to language learning, Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics Video Lectures, together with its accompanying textbooks, integrates the technical requirements for proper Greek interpretation with the actual interests and needs of Bible students.
Systematically linking syntax and exegesis of the New Testament for second-year Greek students, professor and textual critic Daniel B. Wallace explores numerous syntactical categories, some of which are not covered in other Greek studies. These video lectures and accompanying textbooks equip students with the skills they need to do exegesis of biblical texts in a way that is faithful to their intended meaning.
A companion to the widely used textbooks Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics and The Basics of New Testament Syntax, by Daniel B. Wallace, the lectures feature the author teaching through the main sections in the textbooks. Designed with the student in mind, each lecture is approximately 30 to 45 minutes in length. Useful for traditional students, students in distance and online courses, and independent learners alike, these lectures introduce second-year Greek students to syntax and exegesis of the Greek New Testament.
