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.
He is the author of a comprehensive beginning Greek grammar, An introduction to Biblical Greek (Lehxam Press, 2020). He was the general editor of the English-Greek Reverse Interlinear New Testament: English Standard Version (Crossway Books, 2006), and he recorded an audio version of the Greek New Testament for the German Bible Society. You have heard his voice if you have clicked on any Greek word to hear it pronounced in Logos Bible Software.
Schwandt earned his doctorate in Bible translation at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Massachusetts. He earned his master of arts from Westminster Theological Seminary in California, and he completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Idaho.
