The Bible Comes Alive With Online Biblical Hebrew Course

by | Nov 30, 2010 | Charisma Archive

The language spoken by Christ, David and the prophets of old
(ancient Hebrew) is now available to anyone with a computer and high-speed
Internet access.  This online language
program, accredited by the prestigious Hebrew University in Israel, is
available on e-Teacher Group’s website, www.eteacherbiblical.com.  It is designed for people who want to have a
better understanding of the Bible and biblical text of the Old Testament. 

The
eTeacherBiblical.com program includes weekly, live, online “meetings” in
small groups of seven to eight students, and homework assignments that are sent
by the teacher after each lesson. The curriculum consists of five levels with
each composed of students only in that level. 
The five divisions range from beginners, with no prior experience with
Hebrew, to highly advanced students. 
The course focuses on reading the Hebrew Bible in its original language.

In the process, students gain
a comprehensive understanding of the language, including grammar, syntax and
vocabulary. At the more advanced levels, the course deals with different
textual and diachronic perspectives, and delves into a
wider range of biblical texts, including poetry, prophecy and wisdom
literature.

Hebrew University

Since
January 2010, the biblical Hebrew online program is part of the Hebrew University’s accredited courses and is fully recognized by the faculty of humanities. In accordance with the
university’s academic requirements, the program awards students four credit
points.

To
date, eTeacher is the only e-learning company providing the Hebrew University
with live online courses for its students. This is especially noteworthy due to
the fact that the 91-year-old Hebrew University and its faculty of humanities
are listed among the top 100 universities in the world.
