N.T. Greek, and FREE online Biblical training

Well, Dan Phillips' new blog, knowgreek has got me all stirred up to get back to work on my N.T. Greek. Thankfully, learning the Greek alphabet hasn't ever been a problem since I learned it in college--thanks to my participation in the social Greek system.

Here's a bit of trivia "about me", I can recite the full Greek alphabet with a lit match between my teeth and not even blow it out when I get to "Pi". For those unfamiliar with the college Greek system, this was just one form of "hazing" lowly freshmen prior to being initiated into the sorority. I chalk it up to youth and my unregenerate heart--and that of many of my sorority "sisters". Clearly, I digress.

Anyway, while I was exploring William Mounce's NT Greek language website today (his Greek grammar is the most recent textbook I've used), I discovered the Biblical Training website. And, the best thing about the Biblical Training website is it is FREE ONLINE training!

If you know me personally, or have read my blog for a little while you know that I tend to be --ah--errr--well um--a bit skeptical! So I was delighted to find the caliber of speakers and endorsements of this program. If you have a desire to learn more about the Bible and theology I encourage you to take some time and check out this website.

There are three levels to choose from, depending on your academic needs/abilities. Once you select the level you feel comfortable with you select a course and listen to the lectures (online or download MP3). Along with the audio, they provide access to a class outline and a transcript of the lecture. I've already listened to part of the "Worship" course they offer as an introduction to the program.

Just think what you might be able to do through this program to increase your Biblical and theological knowledge and understanding. I'm considering using some of the courses in home schooling my high school student who already has a passion for theology!!
