"Basic Biblical Hebrew" at Amarillo Bible Chair

Starting on Tuesday, September 4th (the day after Labor Day), I'll begin teaching a free course in Biblical Hebrew. Anyone interested is welcome and encouraged to come.

The class will meet each Tuesday evening, beginning at 6:30, at the Amarillo Bible Chair, 2501 S. Jackson (corner of Jackson and 25th). That's just across the street from the south parking lot of the Washington Street campus of Amarillo College.

At this point, the plan is to study for about two hours (until 8:30 p.m.). But sessions can go a little longer if body, spirit, and time permit.

Because this class is not yet a part of the curriculum at Amarillo College, it is not yet a credit class. However, several people have asked about and shown an interest in studying Biblical Hebrew. They simply want to learn at least the basics of the language. So the class is a "go" and I'm excited.

Textbooks: To begin, students must purchase Biblical Hebrew, Second Edition (SET). The two books and three audio CDs come packaged together. The "SET" is available for purchase at the Amarillo College Bookstore, located in the College Union Building on the Washington Street campus of AC. Because the College bookstore has gone ahead and gotten several copies of the SET, my request is that students purchase these materials from them.
