If you’ve taken biblical languages, you may lament the loss of your skills over time, knowing how they aid in preaching, teaching, and personal devotion. As one biblical scholar has written, “There is scarcely anything more important to the health and welfare of the Christian church than a firm grasp of the message embedded in the Holy Scriptures. This message comes to us wrapped, like the Holy Infant, in the swaddling clothes of history, language and culture. We need an ever-renewed army of preachers and teachers, dedicated exegetes, to help us unwrap that message” (Erickson). This drop-in reading group aims to strengthen this cadre through low-key, low-pressure reading, translation, and discussion of easy Hebrew texts. We will review pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar, introducing resources and practices that can continue to benefit your Bible engagement beyond the length of this session.
The cost of these sessions are supported by a generous donor and therefore is free.
We ask that you commit to all or as many of the sessions as possible.
Deadline to submit registration forms is June 27, 2021.
