Introduction to Biblical Languages

This subject introduces students to rudimentary features of Biblical Hebrew and New Testament Greek.

It acquaints students with the alphabets of both Hebrew and Greek, familiarises them with basic grammatical features of both languages, and facilitates the learning of elementary vocabulary.

You will get to learn the range of grammatical and lexical tools available to support the use of scholarly resources based on Biblical Hebrew and New Testament Greek. It also raises your awareness of interpretive implications arising from cultural dimensions of biblical texts preserved in ancient languages.

This subject will be taught weekly in the Sulman Room in St Mark’s on Thursdays 2:00pm to 5:00pm in Session 2 of 2019 (18 July – 17 October). The lecturer for this subject will be Rev’d Dr Jeanette Mathews.
