Instructor: Ted Hildebrandt
Overview: This is the second in a sequence of three courses on the basics of New Testament Greek, increasing the ability to study the New Testament in its original language. You must complete Greek I before taking this course.
- Learn forms and uses of demonstrative, relative, reflexive, and reciprocal pronouns
- Learn inflection and grammatical use of imperfect, aorist, future passive, contract, and perfect verbs
- Learn forms and uses of present participles
- Learn additional Greek vocabulary that frequently appears in the New Testament.
- Learn in greater depth how knowledge of Greek helps understand what God communicates in the New Testament.

Required Resources: All required material for this course is here online. Mastering New Testament Greek by Dr. Ted Hildebrandt includes textbooks, workbooks, video presentations, and interactive exercises.
- Study the material for each unit. Note: You will probably learn best by going through the unit's interactive material first. You will see that the interactive program has Learn Menu (open book icon), Drill Menu (hammer icon), and Review Menu (pin icon). Work through the material in that order; first, Learn, then Drill, then Review. If you want to view a segment more than once because you didn't quite get it all the first time, you can click the item on your menu and go through it as often as you wish. In addition to the interactive format for each unit, study the textbook chapter for the unit, which covers basically the same material as the interactive module. Make sure to memorize the vocabulary and other material for each unit. Then do the exercises in the Workbook; this gives you plenty of practice and repetition to ensure your learning is sinking in.
- Take the online quiz for each unit. The quiz is your opportunity to prove that you learned Greek for the unit. Most quiz questions come from the interactive drills and/or Workbook. You will be well prepared for the quiz if you first do the interactive drill and review, then do the workbook exercises, and then take the quiz. You will have 75 minutes on each regular quiz to answer 30 multiple-choice questions. You will have more time on quizzes with more questions. Once a quiz starts, you must finish it and can't retake it. So be ready ahead of time.
*The course has a total of 400 points: 30 points for each ordinary quiz in a unit with a new lesson, 40 points for each review quiz in units 4 and 8, and 50 points for the unit 12 major review.

Your average for the course must be at least 60%. Otherwise, you will fail the class and will receive no credit.
Deadline: You have 180 days to finish the course. Complete all assignments before the final deadline, or you will be automatically unenrolled, and all coursework will be removed. You will have to start over and retake the class to receive credit.
Course Forum: Each course forum is at the beginning of the course, right before the first-course content section, and has comments and questions from other students in the class. The forum is a great way to post a question or comment for other students who are currently enrolled in the course to see. Additionally, you can search the forum to see if anyone in the past has addressed or discussed the issue, question, or comment you wanted to post about.
NOTE: Greek is very hard for most students and takes more time than other classes. So start the class as soon as possible, and stay ahead of schedule to allow yourself extra time.
