The unit concentrates on using these skills for the purposes of translation, textual analysis and exegesis. A range of texts from the NT, LXX, and early Christianity (e.g. the Didache and other noncanonical texts) will be read as an inductive means to developing skills in translation, applying grammatical learnings, identifying syntax and doing exegesis.
