Delving into the original New Testament

How do you reach the entire world with God’s Word when some people groups don’t have a copy of the Bible in their language? If you have a burden for Bible translation, or if you enjoy breaking down Scripture passages to study them as they were originally written, consider Greek. A minor in Greek will help give you the knowledge you need to properly understand the New Testament's original manuscripts. This program includes 16 hours of language classes—Greek grammar, linguistics, reading, and exegesis. If you want to learn both Greek and Hebrew, check out our Ancient Languages minor.

In the real world

Dr. Troy Manning has taught several of Maranatha's summer block courses on linguistics. He works full-time as the Chief Language Consultant at Bibles International. He supervises many translational works around the world. Manning also visits many of those fields to help the local translators. Through all of his work, he strives to maintain the clarity of the scriptures while giving the Word of God to people who have never had a Bible in their own language.
