as this course, under certain circumstances.
Mark is the basis of work for this term. Reading of the Gospel of
John is required as parallel. Short reading will be made in Luke. The
Gospel of Mark is outlined by the students, and from research in lexicons
and commentaries notes are made in connection with the outline.

connection with Goodwin's text. Weekly exercises are required in
composition. Word formation and etymology are leading points.
