- Hebrew Text Class – Genesis 1-3
For those of you who have had some Hebrew and want to put it to use, this course will begin as a 12 week course. We will be preparing and reading the text (Hebrew) of Genesis 1-3 verse by verse and will discuss its meaning, proper translation, literary structure and how grammar and syntax informs our reading of this familiar but immensely important passage. We will focus on the author’s intention in framing the Pentateuch with creation, the creation of mankind, God’s rest (and mankind’s), and the fall and exile of man. We will also look at how the rest of the Bible echoes these chapters and what it means for mankind’s future.
Students will be supplied with the text and vocabulary for each chapter; it is recommended that students obtain a copy of BDB for lexical work.
Hebrew skills are NOT required.
This course explores the message of the Hebrew Bible and ends with a discussion of Mark’s – and the NT authors’ in general – understanding of how Jesus fulfilled the Scriptures. I seek build a case that the Pentateuch establishes the foundational eschatology that culminates with the coming of Messiah through its literary composition and content which directs readers to what will take place “in the last days”. This is a seminary level course where we discuss the theology of the TaNaK. 8 week course – $25 / 75 minute session
I am excited to be offering New Testament (Koine) Greek. This class will use David Alan Black’s Learn to Read New Testament Greek. The book is 26 chapters long, so I plan to offer it in 2 parts of 15 weeks, which gives us time to work our way through the book at a good pace. 15 week course – $25 / 75 minute session
You need to know Greek to not only read the New Testament but also to read the first Jewish Translation of the Scriptures, the Septuagint.
This is an introductory Biblical Hebrew course. We will use Page Kelley’s grammar, and this course will cover the alphabet through the introduction of all strong verbs and binyanim (stems). 20 week course – $25 / 75 minute session
