Hebrew is the language of the Bible, which is both a spiritual and cultural underpinning of immeasurable influence. When biblical Hebrew is read in the original language, it becomes one of the world’s most impressive scholarly achievements in unearthing the passions of God. Learning biblical Hebrew is the simplest way to capture the essence of the Bible. Dr. Matthew Richard Schlimm, Professor of Old Testament at the University of Dubuque, says, “Those who learn biblical Hebrew can better understand not only what biblical authors wrote, but how they thought (Schlimm, 188).
The Old Testament was written in Hebrew and certain parts in Aramaic. NCCI Universum recognizes the fact that to effectively understand the message the author intended to convey to his readers; one should understand how to read and comprehend Hebrew. Thus, we have a Hebrew school that teaches basic Hebrew for 12 weeks. Learning basic Hebrew will help you gain a stronger insight into the mind of the author and help you to better appreciate the word of God.
