Introduction to Biblical Languages
This is it. This is the class that, most often, completely changes how believers look at the Bible.
This class goes over the basic features of Greek and Hebrew, as well as the use of study aids such as lexicons, exegetical tools, and concordances, enabling those with little knowledge of the Biblical languages to engage in word studies and interpretational exercises.
The realization that the Bible has been translated and re-translated, and that the original languages can sometimes be vague and difficult to interpret, is huge. Most of us comfortably recline with our English version of scripture and don’t think about the long journey those words have taken to reach us.
But when we learn how to study the original Hebrew and Greek, we can gain a deeper understanding of what each individual word means—as well as alternate interpretations of what they could mean. In this way, and combined with prayer, we can make informed decisions about our beliefs.
If you study nothing else, let it be this. You can find this course at any Christian university, Bible college, or seminary, so don’t wait on this opportunity to deepen your faith.
