2020-2021 Graduate Catalog

BIB 511 Hebrew for Ministry II

This course will build on the knowledge and skills acquired in BIB 510 to increase the student's ability to incorporate Hebrew into pastoral, teaching, missionary, or parachurch ministries. The participant will gain confidence in taking a portion of God's Word in Hebrew and transforming it into a sermon, devotional, book, or any other teaching tool which will edify the recipients. Emphasis will be given to discovering what is revealed in the Hebrew text that might be lost or conveyed less poignantly in an English translation. The participant will enhance his ability to use computer tools to facilitate and sustain this vital process for a lifetime of ministry, well beyond graduation. (3 credits)
