- Hebrew Grammar textbook with Christological commentary in each lesson
- Covers important Christological passages
The Christological Hebrew Grammar: Festivals and Prayers teaches Hebrew grammar in an easy-to-follow style. Each lesson covers one verse from an important Christological passage and includes: 1) the text of the verse in Hebrew; 2) a list of vocabulary words taken from the verse; 3) notes on the grammar, with Commentary on meanings and background; 4) a translation of the verse based on the grammatical teachings discussed; and 5) an expository application/interpretation of the verse with an emphasis on understanding how it can be understood in light of Jesus' ministry to mankind.
This series is perfect for a Hebrew student, as a refresher on Hebrew grammar, or as a helpful resource in creating expository sermons from the passages covered. These two volumes cover selected passages from Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy and are an excellent study.
