4.2.20 Foundation & IBLT launch School of Biblical Hebrew

School of Biblical Hebrew full information package >
Dear <<First Name>>,

Dr. David Swarr, President & CEO of 4.2.20 Foundation, and Dr. Randall Buth, Vice President, Institute for Biblical Languages & Translation (IBLT), have announced the launch of the School of Biblical Hebrew (SBH), an 8-month full immersion program beginning June 2017, in partnership with University of the Holy Land, Jerusalem.

The School of Biblical Hebrew will take participants from beginner level to translation proficiency in Biblical Hebrew within 8 months, equipping them with the skills necessary for proficiency in translating the Old Testament directly from the source language. The SBH is a one-of-a-kind program that trains translators to make independent decisions about the meaning of the source text in Old Testament translation projects.

Through interdisciplinary and experiential courses, the participants are given the skills needed to address the diverse linguistic issues that translators face on the field. The program provides 48 credits in Hebrew, with 3 times more biblical Hebrew credits than the current general requirement for a Translation Consultant.

The 8-month program is unique in that it capitalizes on the surroundings in modern Israel to create the optimal environment for biblical Hebrew training, by combining 3 strands: biblical Hebrew immersion, biblical land and culture, and a live-learn environment. 90% of the biblical Hebrew training is taught in the language itself, at both the beginning and intermediate levels.

Chairman of the Lausanne Movement, Ram Gidoomal, has said:

“It is a delight to see this initiative to take on the challenge of accelerating the translation of the Old Testament to resource disciple-making movements among the Bible-less. This is a critical and foundational task which the Church cannot afford to neglect.”
