Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Welcome to the Biblical Hebrew (Self-Taught) Study Group. For those who want to learn Biblical Hebrew for the sake of knowledge without college tuition. "Study to shew yourselves approved unto God...”
Few people would relish going back to 1st grade and learning how to read all over again, but that is exactly what this study guide is offering you a chance to do: Learning letters, learning the sounds they make, finding them assembled into words, learning to pronounce words, letter by letter, having vocabulary assignments and taking quizzes.
It sounds dreadful, and when you did all that the first time, your mind was not jam packed with stuff like... life. This effort can completely revamp how you think about life. It will be much harder than it was when you were six. Your brain is jammed up with cobwebs, there are corners of your brain that you have not used since 3rd grade. You will love going back there in your mind, clearing out cobwebs, and learning the language wherein God first spoke to man, Biblical Hebrew.
You need to do this. It will change your thinking, and it will enhance your Bible reading. In just one year you could be reading at a third grade level!
As a teenager I was told that Psalm 119 was a Hebrew acrostic with groups of 8 verses all starting with the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. My Oxford press Scofield Bible even went to the great care of printing the Hebrew letters before each octet. I was intrigued enough then to know that someday I would learn all those queer shapes with strange names and check this hypothesis out with an actual Hebrew Bible. I first learned the Hebrew alphabet by reading my King James Bible, and twice a year in Psalm 119, I paused to write out the Hebrew Alphabet.
Three reasons I have considered for learning to read my Hebrew Bible are 1) I love the Lord my God and he first spoke to humanity in Hebrew. 2) I love the revelation of the Lord my God and 39 books of His written revelation were recorded in Hebrew, and 3) I love to learn new things believing that when you stop learning your brain starts aging and God commands us to Study to shew yourself approved unto a God a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Given those three, just for starters, one should walk into this learning experience with the anticipation that more concrete reasons will soon develop.
This web-page and journal will make learning Hebrew quick, thorough, and enjoyable.
Or your money back... it is free, however.
Just click the link, then download the journal, and you are on your way.
