Learn to Read the Bible in an Original Language
March 20, 2017
The Rev. John Crow, Associate Minister of Epworth Chapel on the Green, is offering an online Greek or Hebrew study group for anyone who is interested. The goal of the course is to equip those in the group so that they can eventually translate a passage of Scripture.
Rev. Crow is a 2013 graduate of Asbury Theological Seminary and member of Eta Beta Rho, as he says, “the Hebrew honor society with the Greek name.”
No prior experience is necessary to join the group, and Crow will teach either Greek or Hebrew, depending on which one has the most interest. The course is open to anyone, anywhere. A minimum of three people is required. There is no charge.
Crow says, “Don’t be intimidated. We will take it nice and slow, and because it’s online, you can do the work when it’s convenient for you.
“Having a basic understanding of an original language, along with some tools to assist in using that language can open up possibilities to grasp Scripture, and some of the challenges that translators face, in a way that isn't possible otherwise. Translating Scripture is also surprisingly exciting. Learning an original language isn't a quick journey, but it is worth it!
“No one will become a Greek or Hebrew scholar as a result of my study group, but I promise it will be fulfilling for those who put in the time to follow the course.”
