Re: Best Review Text

Barry,

I just got back from Miami. I checked, and I do have the workbook to Basics of Biblical Hebrew along with the textbook - and I have Seow's. If you want some feedback or whatever as you work through whatever you ultimately choose, hit me up.

Regards,
Jason

Re: Best Review Text

Been there, done that. The Greek New Testament is doable, only about two chapters a day. Three or four chapters where the chapters are short. I’d say that my Greek is not as good as the Apostle John, who basically wrote Greek words over an Aramaic base, but good enough with a dictionary to make it....

Re: Best Review Text

Instead of studying what other say about Tanakh, wouldn’t it be better just to get into Tanakh itself? Doesn't this kinda undercut the entire enterprise of B-Hebrew? LOL! And in recent weeks I’m kicking myself for spending too much time here and not enough in Tanakh. Karl W. Randolph. Yeah, I thoug...

Re: Best Review Text

"One level or another"? Is there somewhere to go to read a description of the plan and details of participation? Yes, during my masters studies at UCLA we had to take a HB readings course: 1-2 Samuel and 1 Kings all in a ten-week quarter. The only exam we took was a comprehension exam, מי...

Re: Best Review Text

Jason, What kind of reading skill (fluency, vocabulary, etc.) do you think will be necessary to take on such a challenge? Since we're talking about reading both Greek and Hebrew over the year, I think it takes more preparation than reading skills. What I mean is that we're all preparing by using vo...

Aren't we talking about the Tānāḵ and reading each other's perspectives for the sake of learning? I know that what I'm saying is sill...

Re: Best Review Text

So, Barry, have you made any decisions?

P.S. I used my post #100 to ask you this question. LOL

Re: 1 Kings 19, 12

Since Simon and Garfunkel weren't around back then, I don't think sound of silence quite does. It seems obvious to me the he heard a "voice" and that it was a whisper of a voice at that. The context is that God has come to speak with his man. So I don't see in this instance that it's a &q...

Re: Best Review Text

I learned Biblical Hebrew (to the extent I know anything about it) using Practico-Van Pelt's Basics of Biblical Hebrew , together with its separate exercise book. One reason I liked Practico is that it is clearly laid out and the font size is relatively large. However, I'm sorely tempted to purchas...
