Study of the Septuagint Genesis

Designation: GREE 7713

In this course students will translate sections of the Greek version of Genesis, which dates from more than two centuries before the time of Christ and which was used by the Early Church. Students will use both Greek and Hebrew skills in the study of the book’s translation technique and will compare the Greek text to the Hebrew text. Consideration will also be given to the use of this text in the New Testament. This course will develop Greek translation skills, and will provide students with the foundation for advanced study in the Septuagint and further research in Genesis.
