Directory of Biblical Hebrew Manuscripts on the Web
This is a list of links to photographs (facsimiles) of important Hebrew Bible manuscripts. If you read Hebrew, try reading these ancient documents!
All are welcome to join our Live Hebrew Reading Group. Reading level is intermediate. We meet once a week in a virtual world, equipped with voice chat, for an hour and a half of Hebrew Bible reading practice. Discussion ranges from vocabulary and verb forms to literary structure, textual criticism (occasionally), and biblical theology. We will also often examine the passage from the perspective of the whole Christian canon (NT as well as OT). The goal is to inform the head as well as the heart by listening carefully to the sacred text and to one another. Contact me for further information.
Current meetings: Friday morning 7:30-9:00 AM EST
Eastern Standard Time (Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa)

I started this website back in 2004. At the time I was on staff at Briercrest College and Seminary in Caronport, Saskatchewan, and we needed a distance learning option for non-resident seminary students who had a Biblical Hebrew requirement in their program. Most of the seminary courses were one week modulars but that obviously wasn't going to work for a language course. Long story short, I ended up making a deal with the school where they would provide some resources (computer hardware and multimedia software) and I would make a series of first year Hebrew lectures on my own time, that I would then own, but we would also use in the Briercrest distance Hebrew course. The arrangement worked out well. Briercrest got a course and I got a website.
I have continued to add to this website since then and also started the AnimatedHebrew YouTube channel. In 2011 we moved to Quebec to pastor a small bilingual Baptist church, though I still instruct the distance Hebrew course for Briercrest.
