MGRK2675 - New Testament Greek and its World A

Semester 1, 2014  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Vrasidas Karalis


This unit explores, by means of language, the world, the ideas and the formation of the New Testament as the foundation book of Christian tradition. Language becomes the starting point for the structural analysis of the various books comprising the New Testament and for the close reading in their meaning. It also raises issues of translation and interpretation which were crucial for the establishment of major Christian doctrines and ethical values in different cultures. Finally, it offers a thorough examination of critical discussions about the continuing influences of the New Testament and investigates the discipline of New Testament studies in the beginning of the 21st century.
