Minor in Hebrew
Most of the Old Testament was originally written in the Hebrew language. Since the Old Testament continues to be considered inspired Scripture for Christians, and since the best way to understand it is to be able to read it in Hebrew, Evangel offers a minor in Hebrew.
Every second-language study involves learning a basic vocabulary and how words work together to communicate what a speaker or writer wants to say. Our purpose is to learn to read, interpret and apply the books of the Old Testament. Students planning a career as a pastor, evangelist, missionary or Bible translator often choose the Hebrew minor.
