Welcome to the The Twin Cities Biblical Languages Paideia (TCBLP)


The Twin Cities Biblical Languages Paideia (TCBLP) is a minstry of Rev. Charles Gustafson who for 31 years! has taught, mentored and promoted the study of the bibilical languages Greek and Hebrew in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA).

The goal of TCBLP is to teach, foster and promote the study of biblical languages (Greek and Hebrew) by believers in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area. Last year, the TCBLP had over 30 people reading and studying the Bible in the original language. TCBLP has a number of instructors who are proficient in Greek and/or Hebrew. These volunteers have donated their time and abilities to teach others. This year there are classes at all levels.

There are many people in the Twin Cities that think YOU CAN learn Greek or Hebrew! These people are everyday, normal, motivated believers who have jobs (are not pastors or full-time students), and who think reading the Bible in the original language is extremely important.

If you are interested in reading the Bible in the original language, TCBLP is for you!. See the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more answers to your questions.
