Topic outline

  • General

    We're going to have a wonderful semester learning the basics of Biblical Hebrew. Formal classes begin with the Intensive Monday 10 - Friday 14 February, 2020. But I know that you are itching to get underway, and so this Pre-Intensive material is designed to scratch where it itches.

    The best way to prepare for the Intensive is to become thoroughly familiar with the Hebrew Alphabet and the pronunciation of the Hebrew consonants and vowels. The material that you will find here provides the resources you need.

    The textbook for the Unit is Pratico, Gary D. and Miles V. Van Pelt, Basics of Biblical Hebrew: Grammar. Third ed. Grand Rapids, Mich.: Zondervan, 2019. Besides the textbook it is essential that you also purchase the Workbook that goes along with the textbook. For heaps more resources, go to 

    Happy studying!
