COLLEGE: Wycliffe College SCHEDULE: Mon, Wed, Thu TIME: 9:00 to 10:00

The goal of the course is to equip both students training for designated ministry and those students who wish to continue in advanced degree studies with a working knowledge of biblical Hebrew, as well as for subsequent study in syntax and exegesis. The course itself takes the full academic year (Fall and Winter), and it will introduce students to the fundamentals of Biblical Hebrew, including phonology (sounds), morphology (grammatical forms), basic syntax (the components of meaning text units), and the most frequent vocabulary. At the end of the whole year course, students will have acquired rudimentary skills useful for the purposes of homiletical exegesis, scholarship pursuit, and the general pleasure of textual theological interpretations.
