Studying Biblical Languages

Knowledge of the biblical languages is an important element in biblical study. An optional course of 5 classes in biblical Hebrew or Greek, at absolute beginner, intermediate or advanced level, are available Monday to Friday in the mornings, before the main lectures.

Each of the principal Old and New Testament lecturers also leads three Readings during the week on Hebrew and Greek passages relevant to their lecture courses, at which exegetical and translation issues are discussed.
