RTS-Orlando’s 3-week “Summer Greek” (NT502 Greek I) course is a rite of passage, of sorts, for seminarians. Yes, it comes with some measure of pain, as learning any language must. But I find it quite enjoyable to be “down in the trenches” with our class as we work together for three hours a day learning how to read God’s inspired Scriptures (at least, the NT portion) in their original tongue.
Given that many students who take Greek I are newcomers to the Oviedo area, we are also delighted to be continuing a long-standing tradition of inviting staff from churches in the area to come at lunchtime and provide a free meal, in return for the opportunity to share about their churches (and, hopefully, interest some students in possibly serving/worshipping there during their time at RTS). These lunches are open to non-Greek I students as well: if you are taking a class on campus or are working in the library, feel free to join in.
The course runs August 7–25, and we have a great lineup scheduled so far:
