MON @ NOON: Pour-Over Coffee session (note: I originally planned to do this at 11, but all the SCT faculty have to be at a faculty meeting at 11, so I’m pushing the coffee back to 12pm). This is for any BibLang/Classics majors, or any students who are taking courses in these areas. Please spread the word! Upstairs in the SCT office area by the coffee maker and fridge! Free coffee! See you there at 12 noon!

MON: [1] I’ll field any final questions on Ross Lesson 39. [2] Chisholm Workbook, Jon 1:1-3 Analysis (pp. 23-30).

[a] Answer *completely* all the analysis questions of Step 2 (pp. 22-29) and provide your translation in Step 3 (on bottom of p. 29).  NOTE: I do not require you to do Step 1 as a separate initial step; when you’re going through your analysis, you should be identifying all verbal forms anyway.  Skip Step 4.

[b] Read over my document, Jonah 1.1-3 Gloss and Questions Marshall, and prepare answers to each of the questions. NOTE: My handouts for each segment of Jonah providing an English gloss and discussion questions can be found in the “Restricted Access” page for this course. Please contact Dr. M if you don’t know the password.

[c] Please feel free to use the Parsing Sheets I’ve provided in “Restricted Access” and bring those to class as the basis for our discussion of forms and grammar. If you’re not using these, then take notes in your own homework notes (whether hand-written or typed) be sure to parse any forms that you cannot parse by sight.

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 are in your 3rd reading class or beyond in your Hebrew studies, you should also be making use of the more advanced grammars like Jouon-Muraoka (JM) and Gesenius-Kautzsch-Cowley (GKC)!

WED: Be prepared to discuss Jon 1:4-5 (based on the method outlined for Jonah 1:1-3).
