Hebrew Exegetical Method 1

Mark A. Hassler

Thursdays 9:30a-12:45p

Hebrew Exegetical Method 1 equips the student for the exegesis of the Hebrew Scriptures. It introduces a methodology for exegetical research, and majors on syntactical, literary, and diagrammatical analysis.

As a result of taking this course, the student should be able to (a) summarize the recommended methodology for exegeting the Hebrew Scriptures (b) produce a clear and accurate translation of a selected passage using a Hebrew lexicon; (c) evaluate more effectively the published Bible translations in light of the Hebrew text; (d) identify and define the grammatical and literary features of the selected passage with the assistance of appropriate resources; and (e) construct a logical (structural) diagram of a selected passage using a computer. An adequate diagram retains the Hebrew word order and displays the syntactical and literary components accurately and neatly.
