New Testament

The New Testament student is given a thorough grounding in Koine Greek, whilst also learning the principles of hermeneutics, exegesis, and textual criticism.  The aim is that he might acquire the ability to read, and to make sound judgments concerning the translation and interpretation of, the Scriptures as originally delivered. To that end, students are taught to appreciate how the covenantal structure of the Scriptures informs our understanding of the New Testament.
