Every year Tricia Johnson (Redcliffe’s main lecturer in Biblical Hebrew) and I team up to co-teach an intensive week of Hebrew. There are two courses: one for beginners (assuming no knowledge) and one for intermediates.
Biblical Hebrew Week 2010 – Sunday 20 to Saturday 26 June 2010
Two courses to choose from:
Biblical Hebrew for Beginners
Moving on with Biblical Hebrew
In partnership with Wycliffe Bible Translators and the Centre for the Study of Bible and Mission
Our popular intensive Biblical Hebrew week returns for its fourth successive year. Choose from either the introductory course for beginners or the intermediate programme for those wanting to develop their grasp of the language.
Beginner’s course: Biblical Hebrew for Beginners
This course is designed for people who have had no previous exposure to Hebrew, or who would like to revisit the basics. The aims of this course are:
To cover the basics of the language (alphabet, grammar, vocabulary)
To work together on a variety of Old Testament texts
To better appreciate the literary character of the Old Testament
To gain the skills and confidence to continue learning after the week has finished
Intermediate course: Moving on with Biblical Hebrew
This intermediate course is for those who have already had some exposure to Biblical Hebrew, either on their own or through studying on a beginner’s course. The aims are:
To refresh, consolidate and build on your existing knowledge of Hebrew
To work in-depth on a variety of Old Testament texts representing the different genres of the Hebrew Bible
To develop your exegetical skills and think through some of the interpretive issues presented by the texts
We are delighted to be collaborating with Wycliffe Bible Translators in offering this Hebrew Week. Details of their own three-week intermediate course can be found at Wycliffe’s training website
