I’ve had more than a couple of classes like this. At times, my Intro to Greek class now so many years ago tended in this direction. There is nothing quite like an aspiring NT scholar with a little less than one semester of Greek under her or his belt. I distinctly remember bragging at one point to a colleague about how I had been reading 1 John without a lexicon. Now, almost 10 years later, 1 John looks more and more every day like Dr. Seuss.
