Discamus ut doceamus: Let us learn so that we may teach.
Would you like to be able to read the New Testament in the Greek language in which it was written? Would you like to be able to read Latin, the language of Western Civilization? You can learn Greek or Latin through courses offered online by the Consortium for Classical Lutheran Education, CCLE.org. The Rev. Charles Henrickson will be the instructor for these courses, Greek I and Greek II, Latin I and Latin II, and Greek Readings and Latin Readings.
The plan is to alternate the classes, Greek one week, Latin the next, starting in mid-September. In the basic language courses, we will cover half the textbook, 21 sessions of Greek and 20 sessions of Latin, finishing up in June. For those who have already had basic New Testament Greek, in Greek Readings we will translate upcoming Gospel and Epistle readings. For those who have had basic Latin, in Latin Readings we will translate the Loci Antiqui and Loci Immutati readings in the back of Wheelock. The hour-long weekly live sessions will be at a day and time that works best for the most people. Registrants and instructor will work out the schedule beforehand. Some weeks we may have to move classes, due to schedules, holidays, etc.
If you miss a live session, don’t worry. All the sessions will be recorded and archived for later viewing.
During the live sessions, you will be able to ask questions by webcam, microphone, or sidebar chat. And between sessions, you can contact the instructor anytime.
