Building on the competencies learned in DI2201, students will gain familiarity with advanced grammatical concepts and syntactical relationships as they are encountered inductively through the reading of primary texts. In addition, students will learn to use and evaluate a standard reference work regarding intermediate Koine Greek grammar as they learn to analyze the primary texts by using the syntactical categories of contemporary scholarship.
