The Learning Biblical Hebrew Workbook provides essential practice with Hebrew for students using Learning Biblical Hebrew: Reading for Comprehension. The workbook’s strength lies in the translation exercises designed to provide early access to biblical text, a continuous flow of biblical narrative, exposure to Hebrew syntax and idioms, and instant application of vocabulary and grammar.
Beginning in chapter four, each chapter of the Learning Biblical Hebrew grammar is accompanied by a selection of Hebrew text in the workbook that has been prepared to match the skill level of the student. The Joseph narrative in Genesis 37?50 forms the basis for these translations which feature modified Hebrew text, glosses identifying unfamiliar terms, and notes that align the text with the concepts covered in the corresponding chapter of Learning Biblical Hebrew. As familiarity with vocabulary and grammar increases, the readings are modified less and less until students finish reading the Joseph narrative directly from the Hebrew Bible. Once the students begin learning more advanced concepts later in the grammar, the biblical texts of Ruth, Jonah and Esther are provided with Hebrew terms glossed according to the pace they are covered in the grammar.
The Learning Biblical Hebrew Workbook provides the essential reading practice that makes the study of Biblical Hebrew come alive.
