This is an invitation to those in the Houston area who love Biblical Hebrew and the Hebrew Bible: On Friday, Sept 21, at 11am at Houston Baptist University, Dr. Marshall will have as a guest lecturer in the Hebrew Reading course Josh Westbury, Hebrew Language Specialist from Logos Bible Software. He will be talking about some of the discourse features of Biblical Hebrew from Genesis 37 and 39, as well as giving us a peek at the new Lexham Discourse Hebrew Bible database and how it can is useful for just this sort of analysis of the text.
If you are a former HBU language student, or a present/former student of Biblical Hebrew from any school or church/synagogue, we would love for you to come and hear what Josh and HBU is up to. (By the way, Josh is a graduate of HBU, and one of his majors was biblical languages!). Here’s the stuff you need to know:
Who? Josh Westbury (see bio below, which is from the Logos Bible Software website)
Where? Atwood 2 building, in room 215, on the campus of Houston Baptist University
When? Friday, Sept 21, 2012, at 11am (class runs from 11:00-11:50am)
Why? Because we love Biblical Hebrew, we love linguistics, and we love talking about both of them together! Oh, and we love you, too, which is why you’re invited to come. Please let me know if you are coming (and you’re not one of my Hebrew students)–you can just reply to the post here if you’d like.

It’d be totally worth it.
Mike: Of course it’d be worth it–he’s going to be showing off your wares! 🙂 And Rachel’s, too! We certainly would enjoy having you visit out here. If you do ever have a good reason to be in Houston, I’d love to have you visit our Greeksters and share with them what you’re up to. Hope you guys are doing well. Maybe we’ll catch you in Chicago?
