Study of the Septuagint of Psalms

Designation: GREE 7763

In this course students will read sections of the Greek text of the Book of Psalms which date more than two centuries before the time of Christ and which were 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 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 the Septuagint.
