Jon Laansma is Gerald F. Hawthorne Professor of New Testament Greek and Exegesis in the Classical Languages program at Wheaton College. He regularly teaches Greek 101-102 along with upper-division Greek rapid reading courses that translate whole books of the NT and Church Fathers. One such class reads through all of Luke-Acts. Another pairs several Pauline letters with letters of Ignatius and Polycarp, as well as a few chapters from the Epistle to Diognetus. A third iteration pairs books from the General Epistles of the NT with Martyrdom of Polycarp, Didache, and other non-NT selections. The Classical Languages program as a whole offers similar opportunities for Hebrew, Latin, and Classical Greek texts.
