LA001 - Introduction to Biblical Hebrew

This unit provides a one-semester introduction to Biblical Hebrew. Students will learn the Hebrew alphabet, along with some basic vocabulary and syntax. The focus is on understanding the issues involved in translation in order to appreciate discussions in biblical commentaries on the Hebrew text, and the use of language tools (including online resources).

Please Note: This unit does not meet the requirements for entry into Hebrew exegesis units; students wishing to do so are advised to take LA003 and LA004.
