The Biblical Languages minor, Hebrew minor, or Greek minor are perfect for the student who desires the opportunity to study those foundational documents in ways not possible in English translation alone.
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the foundational documents for the Christian faith. While originally written in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, they have been translated into a large number of the world’s languages. All translation involves interpretation. This is why we have numerous and diverse English translations and paraphrases of the Bible available today.
Study of Scripture in its original languages helps us understand why one translation says “this” and another translation says “that.”
