Koine Greek is the language of the New Testament Bible. When biblical Greek is read in the original language, it becomes one of the world's most impressive scholarly achievements in disambiguating passages that have caused so much confusion in Christianity. Learning biblical Greek is simple and will assist you in untangling a lot of myths in theology that have been propagated for the past two thousand years. Dr. Ben Gutierrez, former Professor of Divinity at Liberty University, says, "New Testament Greek will unfold the finer nuances of the Bible that will cause your mind to ponder its intricacies with a sense of awe and reverence. It is a worthy goal to become a wise exegete of God's holy Word" (Gutierrez, vii).
Many parts of the New Testament were written in Hebrew-Aramaic, yet, the only manuscripts we have are survived in Greek. NCCI Universum recognizes the fact that to effectively understand the message the author intended to convey to his readers; one should understand how to read and comprehend these passages in Greek, and in some places Aramaic. Thus, we have a Greek school that teaches basic Greek for 12 weeks. Learning basic Greek will help you gain a stronger insight into the mind of the author and help you to better appreciate the word of God.

Greek classes are one hour every Wednesday night from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm. The cost for the 12-week program is $300.00 ($25.00 per week). Materials will be provided, and are included in the price? Additional resources can be purchased at your discretion.
