Students in the summer intensive Introductory Biblical Hebrew sequence learn the fundamentals of Hebrew as this language is employed in the Hebrew Bible. We will begin by studying the rudiments of biblical Hebrew phonology and pronunciation and proceed, over the course of the session, to delve into biblical Hebrew nominal and verbal morphology and syntax through exercises in reading and composition. To facilitate this reading and writing, students will master a broad vocabulary that touches on all areas of life, from agriculture and animal husbandry to theology and politics. By means of these approaches, we will equip ourselves with the essential tools for exploring the fascinating and complex literature of ancient Israel and Judah. There are no prerequisites for this course.
