Indeed, this will be the last offering in MEMRA for likely a year. I am rethinking the experiment and will post something about 2012 in September.
As far as this last module, here is the link for registration (which will last two weeks).
Here is the list of courses; all courses are six weeks long, except for the language courses, which are 52 weeks / one year:
How We Got the New Testament ($50; six weeks)
- An introduction to the collection and historical transmission of the text of the New Testament. Attention will focus on the canonical process, ancient scribal tasks, copying and transmission of the biblical text, and ancient and modern translation of the biblical texts. The student will be introduced to types of errors in manuscript transmission, divergent readings in manuscripts, text-critical principles of evaluating errors and divergent readings, and the history of the printed New Testament.
- Taught by Rick Brannan – Rick handles all the Greek NT Projects for Logos and has done so for many years. This will be a treat for those interested in NT textual criticism. Rick has a deep knowledge of the subject.
Old Testament Theology III ($50; six weeks)
- An examination of Old Testament theology in the flow of biblical history, from Genesis 6 through the period of the conquest. Special focus on divine plurality, the sons of God, the Babel incident, Yahweh embodied as the Angel, and holy war in the Old Testament.
Beginning Hebrew Grammar ($200; 52 weeks)
- The course involves working through the entirety of the required textbook (Futato) and therefore requires a good deal of memorization. Students should expect to commit an average of 20-30 minutes per day every day to the course.
Beginning Greek Grammar ($200; 52 weeks)
- The course involves working through the entirety of the required textbook (Black, 2nd ed) and therefore requires a good deal of memorization. Students should expect to commit an average of 20-30 minutes per day every day to the course.
1 Enoch III ($50; six weeks)
- A continuation of the the first two Enoch modules (chs. 72-108)
