The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Greek Classes

Open to beginners, this class includes long-term members who translate using grammar aids, lexicons and commentaries, enjoying how the Greek text reveals nuance and depth in scripture.


First-time visitors can drop-in and need no previous knowledge of Greek. Newcomer classes begin with alphabet and pronunciation practice prior to translation. For more information, contact the Rev. Dr. Thee Smith, 404-365-1093.

Classes meet on Sundays from 1:15-2:45 p.m., in-person in room 239 and via Zoom.


Since 2008 we have offered these New Testament Greek classes in the context of a faith community that offers Bible study for learners and seekers at all levels of inquiry. We are visitor friendly and welcome drop-ins with little or no language skills or background.


We began providing both in-person classes and remote access via Zoom when we returned to church in 2022 following the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.
