Overview

Whether you want to learn Greek and Hebrew for the first time or are simply looking for a refresher, Michael Heiser and Johnny Cisneros are excellent guides. With this tools-based approach, you’ll learn the terminology, tools, and methods needed to interpret words and passages of Scripture—without memorization.

  • Focused on exegesis. Rather than having you memorize vocabulary or translate phrases into English, lessons focus on using Greek and Hebrew to interpret the meaning of the text. Learn grammatical terms and concepts, proper methods for doing word studies, and common mistakes to avoid.
  • Equipping you with tools. Video tutorials show you how to use the advanced language tools in Logos 6. You’ll also learn how to use dictionaries and lexicons, reverse interlinears, commentaries, and more.
  • Connected to your library. Each course is transcribed and becomes a searchable Logos resource connected to grammars, reverse interlinears, and other resources in your library. Read along as you watch the lectures and jump to recommended readings with a click.
  • Learning on your schedule. Watch 5–10-minute lectures from your mobile device or computer, whenever your schedule allows. Set your own pace, and then track your progress with quizzes and exams. These courses contain over 20 hours of lectures and demonstrations that will take you all the way from understanding the basics to performing advanced research techniques.

LA161 Learn to Use Biblical Greek with Logos 6

  • Instructor: Johnny Cisneros
  • Video hours: 12

When it comes to biblical Greek, one of the first things people want to know is what a given word means, where it occurs, and how often. Johnny Cisneros shows you how to answer these questions right from the beginning, with just a few clicks in Logos. He also introduces you to nearly a dozen Greek dictionaries, commentaries, and Bible dictionaries and how to use them for interpretation.

Similar to a seminary’s first year of Greek courses, you’ll get a firm foundation in Greek grammar. Each concept is thoroughly explained with fresh examples. But instead of using memorization, Cisneros takes a tools-based approach, showing you how to use Logos 6 to identify those grammatical concepts in the biblical text.

Next, Cisneros takes you through the three-step process of doing a Greek word study. You’ll learn how to do your own research and interpretation and compare it to the findings of other scholars. He then brings all the information and tools together into a systematic approach you can use to interpret whole passages of Scripture.
