Biblical Hebrew for you


Biblical Hebrew, can meet different goals for different people. Laypeople will gain the ability to read the Old Testament in its original language. Pre-seminary students will acquire the competence they need to begin seminary classes. Pastors will refresh their ability to prepare for sermons and Bible classes.

Starting Tuesday, September 3, Concordia Lutheran Seminary in Edmonton is offering a 9-month evening course in Biblical Hebrew (BL-090/091) by distance education – you can access it on the internet from anywhere. The course is tentatively scheduled to meet Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 7:00-8:30 pm (Mountain Time). The instructor is Dr. Stephen Chambers, the seminary’s Academic Dean and resident professor of New Testament.

In addition to the twice-a-week “live” online classes, led by Dr. Chambers, the course relies heavily on students’ independent work using the course’s textbook, workbook, and online materials. The course follows Basics of Biblical Hebrew (2nd edition) by Gary Pratico and Miles Van Pelt. A detailed course schedule and syllabus is available upon request.

The course is reasonably priced at $250 per semester. (Church-workers in Lutheran Church-Canada pay even less.)

Interested? Contact the registrar, Anna Yang: ayang@concordiasem.ab.ca or 780-474-1468 ext. 227.
