Hebrew Studies: Exodus (Spring 2019 HBU)

This year I’m teaching Advanced Hebrew here at Houston Baptist University on MWF (1:00 – 1:50pm).  The focus is on the Hebrew text of Exodus. This is basically going to be a “speed reading” course through the first 15 chapters of Exodus (if we can keep the pace!). Below are some links to the materials that we’re using.

Syllabus: Get it on the Blackboard course management system homepage for this course.

Hebrew Cross Reference – May 2009 [This is a cross-reference guide keyed to Williams’ Hebrew Syntax edited by Beckman, which takes you to the advanced Hebrew reference grammars for their discussion of each section/paragraph of syntax.]
