The Evening School

Immerse yourself in the language and people of the Hebrew Scriptures

The Evening School is offering two unique opportunities in studying the language of the Bible. In the fall, a six-week course is offered to explore scripture in its original text for those who do not read Hebrew or Greek. Found in Translation: How Words Inform is being offered in a shorter format for students who desire to learn but have busy lives and schedules to contend with. 

In January, a four-week immersion course will be offered for those who would like to learn Hebrew.  Introduction to Hebrew is an opportunity to set aside some dedicated time to plunge into the langague of the Bible.

Students may take one or two of the classes depending on one's interest and learning goals.
