The objectives of this course are:
1. To acquire a sufficent understanding of the syntactical options and vocabulary to enable the student to read the Greek text without burdensome reference to other sources;
2. To understand the nature and difficulty of translation of the Greek New Testament (after all, Peter himself said of Paul's letters: ἐν αἷς ἐστιν δυσνόητά τινα);
3. To make intelligent (if fallible) choices about translation and interpretation options.
