Master Biblical Hebrew verbs in eight live online sessions. We will parse verbs from the six most common advanced stems, namely the nifal, hifil, hofal, pi’el, pual, and hitpa’el.  Each class session will consist of an instructor-led lesson followed by group workshopping of biblical verses. The instructor will guide your use of Accordance Bible Software* and Dr. Moster’s own Tanakh Cards.  Readings will be chosen from the narrative books such as Exodus, Judges, and Kings. You will also be encouraged to complete an assignment outside of class each week. 

Sessions will be recorded, and recordings will be shared with registered participants who need to miss a session.  

Prerequisites: Biblical Hebrew I (Jump Start) and Biblical Hebrew II (Workshop). If you have not completed these courses but believe you have the equivalent background, please schedule a conversation with the instructor prior to enrollment.  

Note: Certificate candidates must complete Biblical Hebrew III. 

Cost: $415. (Limited financial assistance available)
