For an Informed Love of God

The Professor to the Rescue

Why do we study Greek as a dead language? We know that the more senses we employ in learning any language, the easier it is.

The Professor is your friend. Throughout our educational classes on Greek, the Professor will be teaching you fun things to say in Greek like “Hello,” “Goodbye,” how to count to ten, “What is your name?” and much more.

If the Professor is not yet in the chapter you are studying, he will be very soon. He will also be teaching you vocabulary (see an example).


κέρατος, τό (*κερατ)

κέρας means “horn”

"He had two κέρας like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon" (Rev 13:11).
