More Details

Basics of Biblical Hebrew 1 is the first part of a two-course series designed to introduce you to the Hebrew language of the Old Testament.

Using the best inductive and deductive approaches to classical language, Basics of Biblical Hebrew uses actual examples from the Hebrew Old Testament rather than made-up illustrations and emphasizes understanding the structural pattern of the Hebrew language rather than rote memorization.

This course is supported by the best-selling textbook Basics of Biblical Hebrew Grammar (2nd edition) by Miles Van Pelt and Gary D. Pratico.
