Overview

Put your knowledge of Greek into action with Greek Exegesis: 1 John (NT371). In this exegetical course, Dr. John D. Schwandt employs a close reading of the Greek text to do an inductive study of 1 John. After providing an overall introduction to the epistle, Dr. Schwandt walks you passage-by-passage through a careful grammatical-syntactical analysis of the book. At each step of the way, he highlights viable optional interpretations and then argues for the interpretation he thinks most apt for John’s context. You’ll come away from this course not only with a better understanding of 1 John, but also with tools you can use to study other New Testament books.

  • Read and translate 1 John from a Greek text
  • Make the case for who you think John’s implied audience was
  • Make the case for who you think John’s implied opposition was
  • Discuss common interpretive problems and argue for good contextual solutions
  • Make an exegetically based application of John’s message to today’s church
