Hebrew

An Introduction to Reading the Old Testament

This course takes a unique approach to learning Biblical Hebrew, utilizing worship songs in Hebrew as the basis for learning. By immersing ourselves in Hebrew songs, absorbing vocabulary and studying grammar becomes more of a joyful activity and less of a chore. This method also directs our study of Biblical Hebrew straight to its end goal from the start—to glorify the God who has given us his priceless word. Thus, the aim of this course is to take someone without any knowledge of Hebrew and to equip them to begin reading and understanding (and singing) the text.

About the “studying with precision” series

To precisely divide the Word of God, we must learn the biblical languages. This is a long, hard road—but one with great reward. It is through a careful study of Hebrew and Greek that the gospel is guarded from false teaching. It is by the study of these ancient languages that the Church is adorned with the full counsel of God.

Prerequisites

None.

Work load

This course is composed of ten lessons, with each lesson ending in an assignment. A single lesson will take the average student three hours to complete. Students are invited to progress at their own pace. Your coach will inquire as to your intended pace shortly after you begin and help keep you accountable to stay on schedule.

Assessment

Path courses all end with an assessment to determine your grasp of the skills learned and material covered. Successfully passing an assessment requires a high degree of understanding and is meant to serve as a motivation to take your study seriously as well as a catalyst to improve the standard of Bible study in the Biblearc community.
Students who pass the assessment will have their Biblearc account marked with a proficiency badge indicating their accomplishment. They will also earn exciting rewards.
If you do not pass an assessment, you may retry after one week’s time.
