This course is the second in a sequence of two courses that aim to help students develop the ability to read the Bible in Hebrew. Students will read, listen to, speak, and write about the biblical text in its original language. We will read narrative texts from various parts of the Hebrew Bible, including some of the most revered episodes: the creation story, the tower of Babylon, the binding of Isaac, etc. Class time will be spent activating common biblical vocabulary and reading and discussing texts. Preparation for class will include reading, listening, and homework exercises.
