Hebrew Institute

Instructor: Thomas Nass

The Summer Hebrew Institute is an upper-level course in biblical Hebrew for pastors with a strong interest and ability in Hebrew. The heart of the course in 2020 will be the rapid reading of 1 Kings 12-22 in Hebrew. In these chapters, we will see the regrettable beginning of the Divided Kingdom, from Rehoboam and Jeroboam down to Ahab and Jehoshaphat. We will also see the remarkable ministry of the prophet Elijah, with his ups and downs. For an extra project, each participant will spend some time with an upper-level Hebrew research tool or teaching tool with which he was previously unacquainted.

Each year the Institute reads different texts with the hope that some students may enjoy returning year after year.

The Institute is offered every summer at Martin Luther College, and every other (even) year at WLS.

During Summer Quarter 2020, this course runs only one week, June 22 - 26, 2020.
