Dive deeper into the rich language of the New Testament with our Intermediate Greek reading and translation course.

You will explore more complex grammatical structures, enhance your translation abilities, and gain a deeper appreciation of the subtleties of the Greek texts. By the end of this course, you will be well-equipped to read and interpret New Testament passages with greater confidence and insight – come and join us for four days in January!
