I'm considering taking the following Logos E-Track classes from Knox:

  • NT500 E-Greek
  • OT500 E-Hebrew
  • NT510 E-Inductive Bible Study

The website is sparse with the information they provide on what's covered in these classes, and when I asked the seminary to send me copies of the syllabi, they said they were in the process of being updated.

If there's anyone out there who's already taken some or all of these classes, could you kindly email me a copy of the syllabus/syllabi you have?  I appreciate that they'll be out of date, but I'm sure they'll be useful nevertheless!  My email address is: paul_clarke_[at]hotmail[dot]co[dot]uk

Thanks Yes

I'll be taking E-Greek in August.

Did you take these courses?

I didn't James. I was considering taking them to supplement my MABTS in another Seminary, however I opted to continue taking classes in my own Seminary to further my degree.

I wasn't all that impressed that there seemed to be difficulty in sending me a copy of the syllabus - something which my own seminary publishes on their website. Knox said they were being revised, however no one followed up to let me know when they'd been completed. I didn't want to go through the hassle of completing all the application material to become a student at Knox without knowing the details of the classes I wanted to take.

I'd be interested to hear your experiences of taking any of these classes as I'd definitely still consider taking them at some point.

I'll let you know what I think when I finish E-Greek at the end of August. And I'll send a copy of the syllabus.

I just saw the Syllabus posted for E-Inductive Bible Study.

Here it is: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B4DiiDE0bXMrOWhxMlBYTnZqRjQ/edit?pli=1

If/When the E-Greek and Hebrew are posted I'll post them here.

Just wanted to let you know that I am basically done with this class from Knox. I wanted to give you my brief opinion of the class.

I really enjoyed it.

The basic format takes you through the book by Dr. Mounce "Greek for the Rest of us" (First edition). You also are required to read Dr. Lamerson's book "English grammar to ACE New Testament Greek".

I will caution you that there were some who had the second edition of Mounce's "Greek for the rest of us" who had a hard time following along. The first edition is best for this class.

I should not that this is actually only E-Greek I and you only make it about half way through Mounce. There is E-Greek 2 which I assume finishes the book.

This is not a class on learning the Greek language fully it is more of a "baby Greek" or a "tools" class. You will be shown how to do bible study using Mounce's method with Logos.

Hope that helps.

Paul-C:

As someone who has spent time within educational institutions, that's a polite way of saying "At this moment, we don't have our act together."
