Biblical Hebrew Online

Learning the Language of Scripture


Welcome to Biblical Hebrew Online! 

Would you like to be able to read the Old Testament in its original Hebrew? Would you like to be able to dig deeper into God's Word, with an enhanced knowledge of the grammar, syntax and vocabulary of the text? If your answer is yes, then you've come to the right place!

God chose the Hebrew language to communicate his inspired Word, and the Hebrew Bible was compiled over a time span of approximately 1500 years. Hebrew is a rich and descriptive language, and reflects the worldview of ancient Israel, which in many ways is quite different from our western way of thinking. The ability to read and translate from the original text can offer the student a depth of insight into God's Word that is not readily attainable otherwise, and may not be brought to bear in any particular Bible commentary. Original language study provides the student with the necessary tools to search out the meaning of the Biblical text on their own, without the need to rely exclusively upon the work of commentaries or religious professionals.

About the Instructor

Bill Siegler

Bill Siegler was raised in a traditional Reformed Jewish home in New York City. He attended Hebrew school as a child and was taught to read and write the Hebrew language in the context of a local Jewish synagogue. He received Yeshua (Jesus) as the Jewish Messiah at the age of 19. Bill earned the Master of Divinity degree from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in 1996, specializing in original language exegesis. He has extensive teaching experience, and currently maintains an active itinerant speaking ministry in churches, conferences, retreats, Bible studies, missions groups, or other venues. This work centers around two main goals. The first is helping to equip the church for the task of reaching out to, and sharing the Jewish Messiah with the Jewish people. The second is ministering to churches and other organizations by showing how a deeper appreciation and understanding of the Jewish roots of the Christian faith can enrich their own walk with God and their proclamation of the Gospel.

Using the text as a guide, our class covers 30 chapters which are divided into 3 modules, with each module consisting of 12 lessons. The complete 36 week course will provide the student with enough training to be able to read and translate most texts found in the Hebrew Bible. The class introduces 95% of vocabulary words appearing over 200 times in the Hebrew Bible. Students will read through the book of Ruth, as well as many other passages. Our goal is to teach students to read and understand Biblical Hebrew as quickly as possible, with an emphasis on recognition and translation - not memorization.
