Affordable, Practical Ebooks for Learning to Read Hebrew

hebrewHow important is it to learn to read the Bible in its original languages? Maybe you think it is beyond you. I assure you, it is not. All you need is the desire and enough discipline to have a little fun working a few times a week on it.

An old friend (well, she is young, but I mean old because she moved away) has just published three ebooks that make getting started super-easy. These could be used for children’s education, synagogue education, adult education. They are a simple way to be able to read. Once you master reading, then you can move on to understanding. Please take a minute to look at her books even if you don’t think you are interested (they might change your mind):

Read Hebrew Today.

Read Hebrew Today, Level Two.

Read New Testament Greek Today.

    Would you guys please share your experiences learning Greek or Hebrew? Was it exciting and fun?!, or more on the dry side- like 3 week old bread? (Excluding matzah of course- which seems to taste the same 3 years later :)

  2. Evonne asks a good question. I started learning Hebrew in Bible college (undergraduate). My professor was none other than John Walton (now at Wheaton), a well-known scholar of the Hebrew Bible (check him on amazon).

    I took every class I could from Walton (probably a dozen). He must have been embarrassed when I, one of his star students, made a C in Hebrew!

    Years later, my classical and prayerbook Hebrew is solid. I’m working on fluency in reading as I hope to start doctoral work in a few year in Hebrew Bible.

    Now as for Greek, I took one class and made a 100%. Yet I retain only a little. Lots of memorization in Greek, it seems, whereas Hebrew has come to me more as general concepts only understood over time.
