Begin to read the Old Testament in its original language, deepening your insight into both Old and New Testament scripture. This subject complements traditional grammar study with a communicative approach to language learning, which immerses you in biblical Hebrew language through reading, writing, listening and speaking. Campus students enrolled in the three-week intensive will imaginatively enter the ancient world of the text by eating grapes and flat bread, singing Hebrew psalms, and enacting Biblical stories, along with textbook study. Advance preparation includes learning the alphabet and listening to the Living Biblical Hebrew audio files online. Completing both Hebrew A and Hebrew B will give you the tools to undertake further study in Hebrew exegesis subjects and to be able to use Hebrew in preparation for preaching or Bible teaching.
