Course Meets: 4:00 - 5:15 MTW  WH 112

This course has three aims.  The first is to complete the student's basic mastery of the grammar, syntax, and
vocabulary of Biblical Hebrew.  The second is to provide a transition to reading actual biblical texts.  The third
is to introduce students to the use of the standard reference grammars, lexicons and concordances necessary
for Biblical exegesis. We will begin with a thorough review of the grammar and then move gradually into
reading material directly from the Bible.  Literary and exegetical issues will regularly form part of classroom
discussion, as will matters of Israelite religion.

Prerequisites: N172, or permission of instructor.
