Learning Hebrew is indespensable for an advanced study of the Hebrew portions of the bible (the Tanak or Old Testament)
Hebrew language has evolved from Ancient and Paleo Hebrew through classical or Biblical Hebrew to Mishnaic, Medieval and Modern Hebrew.
The main focus will be to equip the student in Biblical and Mishnaic Hebrew. Further courses in Paleo Hebrew will be introduced as they provide insights into the pictorial and iconographic ethos of the language. For example the letter ‘beyt’ is a picture of a house and the letter ‘ dalet’ is a door.
