Hebrew Exegesis F17 (Founders-TES)

When I’m not teaching at Houston Baptist University, I’m privileged to serve at Founders Baptist Church in a variety of pastoral roles, one of which includes training our men for leadership and ministry. This fall I get to walk our men (and others who partner with us through TES) through Hebrew Exegesis on Tuesday mornings.  Below are some links to the materials that we’re using.

Syllabus: Get it directly from Pastor Marshall.

NOTE WELL: When you’re completing these workbook assignments, you should have several reference works *opened* and being consulted whenever Chisholm references them–Van Pelt/Pratico or Ross (depending on which intro grammar you used–note that I constantly make reference to Ross because that’s the grammar I teach from, so please made adjustments to VPP where applicable), Waltke-O’Connor (WO), Willams’ Hebrew Syntax (edited by Beckman, WHS), van der Merwe (BHRG), and one of the Hebrew lexicons: Holladay, HALOT, or BDB.  If you have any of the other grammars (Jouon, GKC, Arnold/Choi), by all means use them!
