Professor Kathryn Schifferdecker is offering the course Reading Hebrew (LG 4127) in-person and by Zoom in the spring semester. The course will help students develop their Hebrew reading skills for the purpose of interpreting the Old Testament. The class will meet two times a week (Mondays and Thursdays, 12:30-1:50), and will be reading passages (prose and poetry) from a number of different OT books, chosen in consultation with the students. The class is designed to build on the introductory Hebrew course, which is a prerequisite. Students will gain facility in Hebrew vocabulary, syntax, and grammar, and will discuss translation and interpretive issues. A syllabus will be posted later this week.
