Rod Remin did graduate studies at the University of British Columbia, the University of Cincinnati, and Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati. Teaching the ancient languages and literatures of the Greco-Roman and Jewish worlds of the Bible so as to help us understand the Old and New Testaments has been Rod’s focus in life. He's taught both biblical languages along with numerous other subjects at Ambrose Seminary (Canadian Theological Seminary) since 1980. Rod and his wife Lorraine (a Registered Nurse at Foothills Hospital) grew up in Vancouver, lived twenty-five years in Regina and now reside fourteen kilometers west of Crossfield, AB. Their two daughters with husbands and three grandsons still live in Regina.

Scholarly & Professional Activity

  1. A set of answer keys to the workbook which accompanies the text used in our first year Greek courses.  These answer keys made possible several improvements in the teaching of the intensive Summer School of Greek.  Although this answer key of approximately two hundred and thirty pages has been duplicated for my students and is being used by two other colleagues.  It has not been published.  The workbook is approximately two hundred and thirty pages of exercises.
  1. Study Guide for the First Epistle of John.  This directed learning enables the student to review grammar previously taught as well as new material.  In addition the student is introduced to the major grammars, lexical works and theological word studies available to those wishing to master New Testament Greek.  This work is unpublished but used by other faculty in the college.  One hundred pages.
