Blog 5 Comments

Twenty years ago, David Bivin taught a 12-hour series of classes entitled "Aleph-Bet: A Beginner's Introduction to Reading and Writing Hebrew." The class was video-recorded and produced into a video series available on video cassette tapes (VCR). This incredible class brought the viewer into a basic understanding of how to read and write the language of Jesus' day. Now, is creating an online course where you can study at your own pace and even interact with other students if you would like.

We told you earlier this year about our efforts regarding David Bivin’s 12-part series of classes entitled, “Aleph-Bet: A Beginner’s Introduction to Reading and Writing Hebrew.” The class was videotaped in 1995 and only available on VHS tapes. has secured the masters and paired it with our reading material contained in our Hebrew Nuggets for a first-rate course. This incredible class teaches you a basic understanding of how to read and write the language of Jesus’ day.

As David says in the first lesson, “NO study of ANY language pays-off like learning Hebrew.”

On the 20th anniversary of teaching this video series, we are proud to provide this outstanding 17-unit Online Learning Course. You can study at your own pace and even interact with other students if you prefer. We are excited about this new opportunity for learning we can provide our online community.

The “Aleph-Bet” Online Learning Course will include videos, helpful articles, reading and writing practice sheets plus a couple of quiz questions from time to time. We even throw in a pop-quiz every now and then to see how you are doing (don’t worry it isn’t graded). Once you have completed the course you will receive a Certificate of Achievement from Jerusalem Perspective.
