REL 467 - Introduction to Hebrew

3 credits
Crosslisted: THY 567
Prerequisite(s): REL 123 , REL 110RS  , REL 210RS  or REL 223 
This course is a general introduction to the modern Hebrew language. Designed as part of a broader theological context, however, it is presumed that most students will participate in this course out of a desire to enhance their ability to study Hebrew scripture more intently through familiarity with the Hebrew language. Therefore, students will also examine selected texts of biblical Hebrew as well. Students taking this course for graduate credit will be required to complete a module on biblical Hebrew; undergraduates may do so at their discretion for extra credit. The course will consist of language drills in class, readings on the Hebrew language and Hebrew culture, and other activities. The use of Hebrew in both Hebrew and Christian scripture study and worship will be examined.
