learn-to-read-the-bible-in-the-original-languages

Maybe you’ve always dreamed of learning the biblical languages, but going to seminary has never been an option. Or perhaps you once knew Greek and Hebrew well, but over time, you’ve lost some of your proficiency.

When you complete the new Biblical Languages Certificate Program, you’ll be able to work with the languages the Bible was originally written in.

You’ll discover meanings you might not see in an English translation. You’ll be able to see the kinds of rhetorical devices that get lost in translation. And you’ll be prepared for advanced language study.

Understanding Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic will transform how you understand and interpret the text of God’s Word.

Last chance!

Introductory discounts end this coming Friday, September 30.

If you were to sign up for each course separately, you would pay $999.95. But by signing up for this program of study, you will pay only $799.99—that’s nearly $200 in savings.

Even better, through the end of this week, take an additional $50 off this price. That brings the price down to only $749.99 to be able to read the Bible in the original languages of Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic. But remember, this is the final week to get the best price.

Don’t wait—get started today!
