Ancient Language Study with Mike

Posted By on August 2, 2010

Just wanted to issue a reminder on this. †You’ll recall that I decided last year to teach people Hebrew and Greek by walking them through a Hebrew and Greek grammar over the course of a year. †October will mark the end of that year-long commitment. †If anyone is interested in repeating that process, please email me. I am also offering to do the same this year (starting in October after the others end) with Ugaritic and Aramaic (presuming enough people sign up).

    I’m very interested in Greek, but I can’t seem to find your email address anywhere.

    I’ve been working my way through Athenaze, but I procrastinate too much when I don’t have a teacher.

    Just look under the “ABOUT” on the left side for MSH email

    “To contact me (other than through a posted comment), email me at mshmichaelsheiser [at] gmail [dot] com.”

    I will register later this month for Aramaic alone. I have to continue with intermediate Hebrew and Greek on my own while I start Aramaic. Taking Ugaritic as well would be too much. Next year I’ll take Ugaritic.

    Hi Mike:

    May 11, 1998, Charles Krauthammer wrote an essay with some observations about the fate of Hebrew as a language and of the Jewish return to Israel. I am glad you are making this available for so many.

    “A century ago, Europe was the center of Jewish life. More than 80 percent of world Jewry lived there. The Second World War destroyed European Jewry and dispersed the survivors to the New World (mainly the United States) and to Israel. Today, 80 percent of world Jewry lives either in the United States or in Israel. Today we have a bipolar Jewish universe with two centers of gravity of approximately equal size. It is a transitional stage, however. One star is gradually dimming, the other brightening.

    Soon and inevitably the cosmology of the Jewish people will have been transformed again, turned into a single-star system with a dwindling Diaspora orbiting around. It will be a return to the ancient norm: The Jewish people will be centered–not just spiritually but physically–in their ancient homeland.”
