Summer Institute of Biblical Languages Underway

The RTS Jackson community is abuzz with activity as the Summer Institute of Biblical Languages has passed its midway point for 2016.  Hebrew and Greek courses began June 20 and will finish August 12. 

SIBL is designed to provide language proficiency through intensive immersion, allowing students to dedicate their summers to gaining a full year’s worth of languages (in Hebrew I and II or Greek I and II).  Students in the Hebrew and Greek courses sit under the interactive teaching of Dr. Miles Van Pelt and Dr. Benjamin Gladd, respectively, three hours per day, five days a week for 8 weeks. 

As students engage in the intensive and rigorous academic setting, they likewise take part in a supportive community environment. A number of students meet each week to enjoy fellowship with one another over lunch, as well as through a friendly but spirited game of Ultimate Frisbee.
