Intermediate Old Testament Hebrew I

This course aims to consolidate the grammar acquired in Introductory Hebrew, by means of review assignments and tests; to expand the student’s grasp of Hebrew syntax, emphasizing the use of nouns and verbs, with reference to the text of Williams; and to develop Hebrew reading skills by studying a number of longer texts in a variety of genres through Ben Zvi. A reference lexicon (such as BDB or Holladay) and a critical text of the Hebrew Bible (preferably BHS) will be essential for these assignments. Vocabulary acquisition will be tested through occasional quizzes; by the final exam, the student should have learned every word occurring 40x or more in the Hebrew Bible (see Mitchel in the bibliography for a guide). Students wishing to do additional guided reading in the Hebrew Bible may wish to make use of the volumes by Goldstein; and, as longer-term investment in the study of syntax, the volume by Bruce Waltke is highly recommended (see below). A more detailed schedule will be provided at the beginning of class. 

This course has a maximum enrollment of 25 students.
