Basics of Biblical Hebrew Video Lectures provides 36 easy-to-follow lessons (6 DVDs) introducing the grammar and language of the Hebrew Bible. Integrated for use with today’s bestselling Hebrew text, it is an ideal resource for traditional students in need of additional instruction; for professors, who can now utilize precious classroom time for discussion and exercises—and have students watch lectures at home; and for self-learners and homeschoolers with an interest in learning Hebrew on their own.
Each lesson is approximately half an hour and is taught by experienced teacher Miles V. Van Pelt using a logical and simple method of learning biblical Hebrew, an approach he’s refined over more than 20 years of studying and instructing students in biblical languages. Focused on the structural pattern of biblical Hebrew instead of tedious memorization, each video session will give students in formal language classes and self-learners alike the basic understanding they need to begin studying the Hebrew Scriptures.
