The class will be held virtually.

Instructor: Richard Rodriguez

Classes start September 10, 2022

This is a formal grammatical introduction to the type of Hebrew used in the Old Testament.  Please note: It is different from Modern Hebrew.  The course is designed and paced for working adults who have other responsibilities to prioritize during the week. As such, the entire course is estimated to take approximately 3 years, which will cover all the grammar in the textbook and allow the student thorough access to the original texts.

The textbook is: Introducing Biblical Hebrew by Allen P. Ross. 

This fall, we plan to cover the first 10 chapters including all the exercises. 

Classes will be held on Saturdays on ZOOM from 8:45 a.m. – 9:45 a.m. (CST)

Any students interested in this class should email Mr. Rodriguez.

The cost is $50.00 for the class. You can pay this fee through our Give Central websiteNote however that payment is not registration. To register, you must email Mr. Rodriguez.


Students should purchase their own copy of the textbook.


We expect to offer continuing classes in this series in the spring and summer of 2023.
