School of Biblical Hebrew

The IBLT School of Biblical Hebrew is a biblical Hebrew immersion program that equips participants with the skills necessary for proficiency in translating the Old Testament directly from the source language.

The SBH is one-of-a-kind 9-month program that trains translators using language immersion to make independent decisions about the meaning of the source text in Old Testament translation projects.

Through interdisciplinary and experiential courses, we give participants the skills they need to address the diverse linguistic issues that translators face on the field.

This course provides 48 credits in Hebrew, with 3 times more biblical Hebrew credits* than the current general requirement for a translation consultant.

*SBH offers 26 biblical Hebrew credits. Comparison has been made to the general requirement of 9 credits.
