Study of the Septuagint of Joshua, Judges, 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 and 2 Kings

Designation: GREE 7723

In this course, students will translate sections of a Greek version of Joshua, Judges, 1 and 2 Samuel, or 1 and 2 Kings, dating from more than two centuries before the time of Christ and 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 the texts 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 the Septuagint.
