Reading the Old Testament in Hebrew provides a much stronger sense of the original culture and perspective of its writers and their communities. Such insights can help us to appreciate better not only the Old Testament text but also its pivotal role as ‘scripture’ for the 1st century Jewish communities from which the New Testament and the early church emerged.

Hebrew Part 1 and Hebrew Part 2 together form ‘An Introduction to Biblical Hebrew’. Hebrew Part I is designed for the complete beginner whilst Hebrew Part 2 takes the study a little further. Both courses are based on John Dobson’s popular book ‘Learn Biblical Hebrew’. Hebrew Part 1 covers the first seven chapters of Dobson. Having a copy of Dobson (2nd edition) is a pre-requisite for both courses, Anyone intending to take Hebrew Part 2 should ensure that they have covered Dobson as far as the end of chapter seven before attending the course. By the end of the two courses the student is ready to begin reading portions of the Old Testament with the help of a lexicon.

Jon Riding spends most of his time working with United Bible Societies as a translation consultant where he leads the Machine Assisted Translation research team. Jon has taught NT Greek and Biblical Hebrew for various institutions in the UK and abroad. He worked closely with John Dobson as technical editor of the second edition of Learn New Testament Greek and the initial preparation for Learn Biblical Hebrew. He is also the director of the Sherborne Abbey Insight Programme: www.insight.sherborneabbey.com
