Biblical Language Tools (BIB 722)

BIB 722

This course introduces the student to the original languages of the Bible with English as the language of comparison and contrast. The course is designed for the non-specialist who would like to get maximum benefit from Hebrew and Greek language tools for the study of the biblical text applicable to a wide variety of settings — personal study, worship coordinating, sermon preparation, and lesson planning. The goal is to illuminate the characteristics and distinctive features of each language in order to help the student evaluate commentaries, engage in more sophisticated linguistic and semantic analysis, and use Bible computer programs and printed research aids more effectively.
