  • Biblical Hebrew A

Scheduling a class now – please contact me to participate

This is an introductory Biblical Hebrew course. We will use Page Kelley’s Biblical Hebrew, an Introductory Grammar (2nd Edition) for this course, and this course will cover the alphabet through almost all qal verbs. 20 week course – $20 / 75 minute session ($400)
  • Hebrew Text Reading (ongoing)

This class is ongoing and can be joined at any time with a semester or two of requisite Hebrew grammar. Text and Vocabulary are supplied, and we read and discuss all aspects of the text, including grammar, syntax, literary structure and related theology.

If you would like to sit in on a class to get a feel for it, please let me know. Recordings are also available.

$20 / 75 minute session, pay in blocks as you go.

  • Biblical Theology A (Not currently teaching; please contact if interested)

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 to 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. 12 week course – $25 / 75 minute session
  • Koine (NT) Greek 

(Not currently teaching; please contact if interested)

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.
  • Hebrew Text Class – Genesis 1-3

(Not currently teaching; please contact if interested)

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.
