JUS 509a Introductory Biblical Hebrew


JUS 509a is the first half of a full year of Biblical Hebrew. 

Biblical Hebrew introduces students to the basic grammar and syntax of the Hebrew Bible with an emphasis on understanding the function and formation of the verb, the use of the noun, and the acquisition of basic vocabulary. The overall goal of the course is to enable students to translate narrative prose in the Hebrew Bible. Students will also gain some experience in translating poetic texts.
