Biblical Hebrew is not a dead language...

BiblicalHebrew.com: Immersion Language Learning, FREE for ALL

Many of you watching this will know me from my website KoineGreek.com, but my main field of expertise is actually Biblical Hebrew. And so, for a number of reasons, I’m really excited to announce that it’s finally time to launch a website with resources for learning Biblical Hebrew as a living language at BiblicalHebrew.com. So what sort of resources are we talking about?

  • Intuitive video lessons to learn Biblical Hebrew immersion style
  • Similar lessons for related languages, like Ugaritic, Aramaic, and Akkadian
  • Cartoons of biblical stories in Biblical Hebrew
  • Doing the news in Biblical Hebrew
  • Recordings of ancient Hebrew inscriptions in ancient pronunciation
  • Recordings of texts from the Dead Sea Scrolls
  • A podcast on Biblical Hebrew language and pedagogy
  • and more!

Now not all of this is ready yet, I’m still building it, but I’m super excited about this and can’t wait to launch the website. But, I need to ask for help first. Because what I am hoping to do is to make all of these learning resources available for FREE under a Creative Commons license, so that wherever you are in the world, if you want to learn, teach, use them in different contexts, DOWNLOAD them (with proper device and internet connection), you can do that without worry.

But in order to be able to offer all of these resources for FREE, I need the help of generous givers out there who can get behind something like this, making quality Biblical Hebrew resources available FREE for people around the world. And if enough people give—if we hit our target goal within the next 30 days—I will launch the website with the resources I’m building available for FREE under a Creative Commons license. So, if you like this idea and can offer a bit of help, I would be very thankful, and it would help get Biblical Hebrew resources to many.

There is, after all, still a lot to do. At the time of launch, I anticipate there being 8 Biblical Hebrew cartoons, 6 ancient inscriptions with audio (and translation, commentary), and roughly one introductory lesson for each language (Hebrew, Aramaic, Akkadian, Ugaritic). I hope to continually add more language lessons regularly as I am able. The language lessons will be one of the main projects your giving goes toward right away.

Also, there is no long-term obligation with your giving. Cancel anytime via the link in your confirmation email or in the DONOR DASHBOARD.
