Course textbooks for 1st year Hebrew:

Hebrew/Greek Bible, Trinitarian Bible Society Old Testament (Masoretic Text, ed. Ben Chayyim & C. D. Ginsburg; NT Textus Receptus; product code HEGRB. (the Trinitarian Bible Society prints the traditional Hebrew OT text that lies underneath the Authorized Version and Received Text Bibles in other languages.) Hebrew OT PDF  (you can download this, but you will still need the physical book for class.)

Introduction to Biblical Hebrew, Thomas O. Lambdin

Annotated Key to Lambdin’s Introduction to Biblical Hebrew, H. G. M. Williamson

Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew Lexicon (online here and  here, but you need a physical lexicon for the class) or The Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament, Ludwig Koehler and Walter Baumgartner, trans. & ed. M.E.J. Richardson (Either lexicon is acceptable; see the course outline for the differences.)

For the latter half of 1st year Hebrew, and for second year Hebrew (as well as for 2nd year and above Greek classes) it is extremely valuable, although not absolutely required, to have Accordance Bible software’s package, at a minimum the Original Languages Collection, or the more extensive Essential, Advanced, or Ultimate Collections.

Course Lectures:
It is possible to take the class without watching the lectures live. The cost for the three-credit course (1st semester)  will be $150. The class can be audited for $75. The class lectures will be posted on the Internet and can be viewed online for free, but only those registered for the course will be able to ask questions, engage in classroom interaction, take tests, etc. Scholarships for those who are genuinely unable to afford it (e. g., some who wish to learn Hebrew in very impoverished countries in Africa) are available. To register for the course, use the registration form below and send it to Mukwonago Baptist Church.   More information is also found  here. The second semester will follow, Lord willing, after the first semester credit hours are completed. The course content and class dates for 1st semester are found in the course outline above. You can pay for the course by sending a check to Mukwonago Baptist Church or by using the button below.  If you use the button, be sure to also very soon afterwards use the contact us link and provide us with registration information so that the person paying and the person who gets registered are both the same individual.
