Biblical Hebrew

Biblical Hebrew I–II (LLEA 301–302 / REL 301-302)

These cross-disciplinary courses enable students to gain proficiency in both the language and thought of the Hebrew Bible. After working through the grammar and morphology of classical Hebrew, students will read substantial sections of core texts from the Penteteuch and historical books, while at the same time being introduced to the modern critical study of the Hebrew Bible through additional readings and classroom discussion. After completing both courses, students will be able to make use of biblical Hebrew texts on their own and have a sound understanding of the major developments within Israelite religion. These courses are cross-listed with the Department of Religion.
