The Hebrew Gets Harder! Print E-mail

The Month of November was enveloped in Hebrew! The best and the brightest from the first course were invited back to delve deeper into the language of the Old Testament. However, it’s not as hard as it sounds. The languages here are often much closer in grammar to Hebrew than they are to English…

 The goal is to get them to work directly from the Hebrew as much as possible. Although they will still primarily use English translations, that is not the best way. English is so far away from both Melanesian languages and Biblical Hebrew that it would be like traveling through the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport to get from Nashville to Philadelphia! Each student left with a greater understanding of Hebrew, and because of the similarities in their languages, a greater understanding of the message of the Old Testament.
