Biblical Hebrew Instruction

One of our ministries for the building up of the Church is teaching Biblical Hebrew for free to Christians. Sawyer Moranville, the founder of Lingua Deo Gloria, will teach these courses once-a-week, for 12 weeks (1.5 hour class time). We will use Aleph with Beth Youtube materials and other resources on their website (in addition to a new book currently being written). This will be the foundation of the students' weekly homework. These classes will be conducted in a live, online setting and be done primarily in Biblical Hebrew (that means we will speak, listen to, read, and write in Hebrew). To learn more about our teaching methodology, visit our About page.

Questions and Answers

Who are these courses intended for?

Anyone who is willing to put in hard work to learn the language is encouraged to apply.

How can I sign up?

We have closed applications. Lord willing, we will open up new courses in Fall 2024.

Will everyone be accepted?

Sadly, no. Class sizes are generally limited to keep the student/teacher ratio low. Also, we currently only have one teacher so some, by necessity, will not be accepted.

How many hours a week should I expect to devote to homework?
Students who apply and are accepted should expect to devote 4-6 hours a week studying on their own.

How much Hebrew experience do I need in order to apply?

We would like the students to have watched the first 20  videos of Aleph with Beth before the first class. Other than that, even absolute beginners are welcome to apply.

I have already taken one or more semesters of Hebrew in seminary. Can I still apply?

Absolutely! Any student, regardless of previous experience, can apply.  I encourage students with prior Hebrew studies, but  who have never learned to speak the language, to begin afresh. Listening and speaking work different parts of the brain that are not normally used when reading and translating alone.

When will the first classes start?

More classes may open this Fall.
