We continue to follow John Dobson’s immersive programme for reading New Testament Greek text. You will already need to be familiar with the following basic elements of grammar and syntax from the first 15 chapters of his book: reading the alphabet; standard declensions, basic pronouns, conjunctions and prepositions; present indicative and subjunctive, imperfect active of regular contracted and uncontracted verbs; recognition of indefinite(whoever) and purpose (so that) clauses.
We will aim tobegin with chapter 16 and work through between one and two chapters a week,according to the capacities of the group.
