Note about Greek and Hebrew
Once in a while, the lectures of this course include words in Greek or Hebrew. Don't worry about this, because a knowledge of these languages is not necessary for the course. Furthermore, when a Greek or Hebrew word is used in a study guide, glossary, or quiz, it will be transliterated (using English letters). However, it may be helpful to at least look at the alphabet of these biblical languages and learn something about the way they are transliterated. If you are interested, you may look at the following resources:
For Greek, see the following PDF document:
For Hebrew, you may look at the following web site called "Judaism 101"
Each lesson has a glossary of terms and names used in the lesson. You can find it in the "Resources" section of the lesson.
