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. Provided on a drop-in basis, first-time visitors need no previous knowledge of Greek. Initial classes begin with alphabet and pronunciation practice prior to proceeding to translation. For more information, contact the Rev. Dr. Thee Smith, 404-365-1093.

This class is Sundays from 1:15-2:45 p.m., in-person in room 239, and via Zoom.
