BIBL500—Biblical Language Tools for Exegesis
Instructor(s): Clement Tong
This course is designed to introduce Biblical Hebrew and Koiné Greek (NT) for students who have no background in biblical languages and who will need language tools to accomplish exegesis. The course includes a basic introduction to each language, emphasizing understanding the basic elements of a sentence to be able to analyze how a sentence creates meaning. The use of language resources and tools will be covered so that a student will be able to use these tools in doing exegesis in both languages. Six weeks of classes will be spent on each language, culminating in an open book exam for each language. A demonstration of Bible software will be included.
