Different cultures see the world differently, and the more languages you learn, the more of the world you are able to perceive. Learning New Testament Greek gives us a chance to step inside the shoes of the New Testament writers, to try to make sense of the world in their terms. The language is a puzzle – there are words and endings to be learned, and grammar to be understood, which all go together like a giant jigsaw, a black and white one which only gets coloured in once all the pieces are in the right order and you can see the whole picture. It gives you a different way of studying which can be a helpful break from and reflection on essay writing. It lets you read texts without relying entirely on someone else’s translation and interpretation.
