Hebrew at Lunch: Summer Exile Edition

Dr. Ryan Tietz, Assistant Professor of Exegetical Theology, has led “Hebrew at Lunch” every Friday at noon for the past couple of academic years. With remote work suddenly the temporary norm for the whole campus, Dr. Tietz has taken the opportunity to expand this informal class to include pastors and students from multiple states and even Brazil. In short, all are welcome to join him online, every Friday. Or, in his words:

“The Bible has many funny names. Join Dr. Tietz every Friday noon EDT via google hangouts to translate and discuss those guys with funny names, the Minor Prophets. Listen in or ask questions. It is up to you. We continue with Zephaniah 2 this week.”

You can join the Google Hangout at meet.google.com/vib-wioz-oox or email Dr. Tietz at [email protected] to be added to the group. He plans to continue “Hebrew at Lunch” every Friday noon in a google meet format for the foreseeable future.

This photograph of a Hebrew Psalter is on display at The Jewish Museum. Description from wikimedia: “This manuscript, open to Psalms 6:7–9:19, was used as a schoolbook in the first half of the thirteenth century. At least three Christians annotated the Hebrew text extensively in Latin and French. The notes in the margin mainly concern Hebrew grammar and vocabulary. The Latin translation relies on the Vulgate, but also reflects knowledge of Jewish sources.”
