This is the second of three connected courses (Greek 1, 2 and 3). Upon succesful completion of this course, students will be able:
1. to describe and explain more advanced elements of Koine Greek morphology and syntax (infinitives, participles, genitive absolutes, subjunctives, imperatives, syntax of the cases)
2. to translate continuous narrative texts from the New Testament of an easy-to-average level of difficulty
3. to use the reading aids assigned by the instructor (grammar book, lexicon, grammatical analysis of the NT)
In this course we will continue working with Decker, Reading Koine Greek (lessons 22-29) and additional materials provided by the instructor. This course will require no further memorization beyond what you have learnt in Greek 1, although you are strongly encouraged to keep your level of knowledge up to scratch. To this end, you will be required weekly to prepare a translation of an assigned portion from the Gospel of Mark.
The midterm exam and the final exam each make up 50% of the final grade. You are allowed to use the assigned grammar book and lexicon during both exams, as well as any other material approved by the instructor beforehand.
