Would you like to improve your Hebrew and gain some insight into the relationship between the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament?
Then be sure to join Dr. Rob Hiebert on the third Wednesday of every month for עברית בבקר (Hebrew in the Morning). You will be treated to an Israeli breakfast (e.g., pita, hummus, tahini, salad, fruit) and will read a selected text from the Hebrew Old Testament. Besides helping one another gain confidence in reading and translating Hebrew, participants will also reflect on how these texts are appropriated in the New Testament (typically via the Septuagint). All are welcome (even those whose Hebrew is on life support). Some knowledge of Greek will be helpful, though not essential. To Register visit Susan Mattam in the Trinity Western Seminary Suite (upstairs Fosmark). Be sure to bring the registration fee with you in an envelope (Include your name and email) .

Join a group of people engaging with the Greek New Testament and in a non-credit context advance their understanding of New Testament Greek. We read about 5 – 7 verses per meeting and take our time to discuss the Greek structure, specific words, and the general meaning of the text in relation to the overall composition. This Spring we will continue our reading in 1 Timothy. I provide a commentary on the Greek text that you can use to prepare for the sessions. The degree of your interaction in the sessions is voluntary. I encourage you to come prepared to read some Greek and provide a rough translation of the text into English. Frequently we find ourselves spiritually challenged by our reflections together.
|Dates:||Jan 14; Feb 4; Mar 4; and Apr 1|
|Location:||Fosmark Centre (Room 130/131)|
|Cost:||$25 (includes breakfast and handouts)|
