Hebrew is the language of the Bible, the foundation of the Judeo-Christian faith. The cultural and religious influence of the Bible is incalculable. Understanding the language in which it was written is not only a literary achievement but will also bring rich depth and understanding to one’s faith and how we are to respond to a world that is changing rapidly. While the Bible can often seem complex and at times, perhaps even contradictory, learning the original language will bring understanding. Furthermore, understanding the language of the Old Testament will clarify the New Testament, unlocking cultural significance and meaning. Learning Modern Hebrew is the simplest way into the Bible. Biblical Hebrew I is the beginning of that exciting introduction to the language of the Bible.
