This workbook can be used together with any elementary Biblical Hebrew grammar. It applies many of the tools of modern language acquisition to make learning the classical language an active and inspiring process. Well-known Hebrew names are used as a pedagogical aid to memorizing grammar and vocabulary. Original Biblical texts are focused upon and the translations provided closely follow the Hebrew text. The workbook enables students to develop their understanding of systematic sound changes in Biblical Hebrew.
