IS111, Hebrew I
Four Credits

“The Hebrew language is the best language of all … If I were younger I would want to learn this language, because no one can really understand the Scriptures without it. For although the New Testament is written in Greek, it is full of Hebraisms and Hebrew expressions. It has therefore been aptly said that the Hebrews drink from the spring, the Greeks from the stream that flows from it, and the Latins from a downstream pool.” –Martin Luther

“And thus have I given some account of the days of my vanity, being this 24th of October 1730, 54 years, 7 months, and 1 week old. Upon the whole, I bless my God in Jesus Christ, that ever He made me a Christian, and took an early dealing with my soul, that ever He made me a minister of the gospel, and gave me some insight into the doctrine of his grace; and that ever He gave me the blessed Bible, and brought me acquainted with the originals, and especially with the Hebrew text. The world hath all along been a stepdame to me; and wheresoever I would have attempted to nestle in it, there was a thorn of uneasiness laid for me. Man is born crying, lives complaining, and dies disappointed from that quarter. “All is vanity and vexation of spirit.—I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord.” –Thomas Boston
