Biblical Hebrew B gives students a complete and thorough introduction to Biblical Hebrew. In this online unit of study, provided by Open Universities Australia and the Australian Catholic University, students will learn the alphabet, the basic morphology, the syntax and the vocabulary of this language, allowing them a better understanding of theological texts.
Key extracts from the Hebrew Bible will be chosen for students to then translate into English, in order to improve both their own understanding of the text and how different forms of translation affect the impact and meaning of the passages.

This unit provides anybody who wishes to enter the field of theology or biblical research with an indispensable understanding of key texts. It allows you to focus on the way these passages were written in their original form, giving you a greater level of insight into their meaning and practical usage in the modern world.
By learning the vocabulary and syntax of Biblical Hebrew, you will improve your understanding not only of Hebrew scripture, but also of the various arguments put forth regarding how its teachings should be interpreted.
