Introduction to Biblical Languages3.0 credit hours
This is a class for students who want to study the scriptures deeply. The Bible was written mostly in Greek and Hebrew. Knowing even a little bit of either language can help a reader understand the scriptures much better by using advanced study tools. You will learn: the Greek and Hebrew alphabets, some very basic grammar in both languages, how to analyze passages linguistically, how to do responsible word and contextual studies, and about the actual texts and methods that translators use. You will be introduced to other study tools that scholars use to examine the scriptures objectively. By giving the big picture and good set of reasons to go on, this class is a great place for students who want to continue to study the Biblical languages.
