Aims
Upon successful completion of this course, students are able to:
  • read short narrative Biblical Hebrew texts aloud, with correct pronunciation and stress;
  • parse Biblical Hebrew parts of speech (including nouns, adjectives, the article, conjuctions, prepositions, pronouns, and the strong verb in Qal) and analyze simple sentences;
  • and accurately translate simple sentences from Biblical Hebrew to English.
Content
This is the first of three successive courses in Biblical Hebrew.

In Biblical Hebrew 1, students become acquainted with the building blocks of Biblical Hebrew. Reading aloud and recognition of simple parts of speech are central to the first half of the course. In the second half, students learn to parse the basic verbal forms and will read and translate their first sentences from the Hebrew Bible!
