Pastors' Academy
Study Days

Biblical Languages

We run Study Hours in Hebrew online, and Study Days in Greek at London Seminary and live online.
The aim of both is to help you maintain and develop your language skills, with a view to deepening your understanding of the Bible and strengthening your preaching. The sessions focus on particular biblical texts, revising and refreshing grammar as it arises, and discussing exegetical and expositional issues. We won’t expose your linguistic competence to scrutiny, but we will invite you to participate actively!
Hebrew Study Hours

David Green, Vice-Principal of London Seminary, teaches 7 online Biblical Hebrew Study Hours each year.

Each session involves a full hour of Hebrew study, with a little login and chat time either side.

These sessions are appropriate for those with a good grounding in biblical Hebrew, even if it is now rusty. For example, if you can translate Exodus 20:1-3 at sight, identifying and parsing the verbs, you have a sufficient grounding to benefit from these sessions.

  • Time: Tuesdays, login 10.30, study hour 10.45-11.45.
  • Cost: £15 per session, or all seven sessions for £75 (please contact us if you are in pastoral ministry and cannot afford this).
  • Dates: 2021: 30 Nov. 2022: 18 Jan; 15 Feb; 26 Apr; 24 May. These dates are now all fully booked.
Greek Study Days

Neil Martin, Tutor in Biblical Studies at London Seminary, teaches three Greek Study Days each year.

  • Time: Greek days begin at 10:30 with coffee and finish at 15:30.
  • Cost: £42.50 (please contact us if you are in pastoral ministry and cannot afford this).
  • Dates: 24 May 2022 – Ephesians 6. Book here.

"I have found these days a great help to keep going with Biblical Languages in the midst of busy ministry life."
