This class is designed to provide an introductory study of New Testament Greek. In this course students will study vocabulary, parts of speech and exegetical applications.
Plato and Aristotle developed their philosophy in the culture and the language of the Greeks. Homer and Sophocles wrote their literary masterworks in this language. Our Western culture is indebted to Greek language and culture more than any other civilization. For Christians, the Greek language is even more significant. All of the New Testament texts were originally written in Greek. And for the earliest Christians, the Old Testament, translated into the Greek language, was their Bible.
A basic understanding of the Greek language is therefore essential for any theological training that has proper depth, and that is the purpose for this introductory course in biblical Greek.

THS goal is to prepare students to become capable and gifted servant-leaders in the Body of Christ. This program offers several levels of preparation, training and discipleship. The degree of preparation of each student for ministry will be dependent upon the effort, and the amount of time committed to the program.
Since much of what is received at THS occurs in the classroom setting, students are strongly encouraged to attend class on time in order to receive the greatest benefit from each class. To allow for illness and emergencies, a student is permitted to be absent for up to 25% of the total number of class hours per class and still receive credit for that class. Loss of credit will be the result when the allowed number of absences is exceeded. This 25% absence limit is to accommodate illness, emergencies and other unplanned activities.
THS admits qualified applicants regardless of sex, race, color, national or ethnic origin who are personally committed to faith in Jesus Christ.
