Details for Old Testament Hebrew 3
Old Testament Hebrew 3 builds upon 2 previous units of OT Hebrew. In this unit we will bridge the gap between your foundational basics of OT Hebrew grammar and develop an advanced understanding of OT Hebrew syntax. All the foundational principles that you have learnt in OT Hebrew 1 & 2, or the training wheels of the bike, are no longer needed to prop you up. As together we read, translate, and exegete the OT, you will find yourself riding free and without wobbles, and drawing out the wonder of its original message. As such, this is the unit where all your previous hard work pays off, for reading and translating becomes more effortless, and as such more rewarding.
