BH111Biblical Hebrew: Hebrew Language and Linguistics

BH111 : Biblical Hebrew: Hebrew Language and Linguistics (3 Credit)
Academic Year : 2020-2021
About this course

Biblical Hebrew (BH) is the language of the Old Testament (OT). Thus, learning BH gives us greater insight into the OT and the dynamics of ancient Israelite culture and religion. Studying BH hence deepens our understanding of Gods Word, promoting spiritual formation as well as greater efficacy in preaching and teaching.

This course (the first of a four-course series) will introduce the student to the basics of BH. Given modern BH technological study tools, this course will focus less on memorisation, and instead place greater emphasis on understanding BH language and linguistics. Moreover, this course is specially planned with the busy layperson/pastor in mind, and has several design adaptations to help students learn effectively within less time. Nonetheless, given the nature of language acquisition, students should still be prepared to spend at least 3 hours a week outside of the classroom working on their BH (includes doing homework and quiz preparation).

* Language courses must be taken for credit.
