Description: 

This course will provide students with knowledge of, access to, and practice at using original language tools and resources that come in both hardcopy and electronic forms. Students will start by learning the Greek and Hebrew alphabets, including the convention of identifying Hebrew vowels. The course will follow with instruction on the meaning of the basic grammatical and syntactical features of these languages, so that reference made to them in these resources will assist students in exegesis. The resources to which students will be coached in accessing and understanding will include Interlinear Bibles, Concordances, lexicons, theological wordbooks and original language based commentaries. The learning of grammar will be tied to the study of selected portions of Amos and Philippians.
