This page offers a brief overview of the course in classical (biblical) Hebrew. Classes in classical Hebrew are offered to any interested party as online lessons. Contact me via this website to apply.
Hebrew may only be taken when at least one year of Greek (preferably two) has been completed. The Hebrew class begins with a study of A. B. Davidson’s Introductory Hebrew Grammar (26th ed.), spread over two years. All the exercises, including those in reverse translation and pointing, are worked through. These exercises are not infrequently to be completed in both Greek and Hebrew to highlight and contrast the way in which the grammar of the respective languages works.Thereafter biblical Hebrew prose is read and finally a course in early rabbinic Hebrew is offered.
