Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the changes and challenges in the study and teaching of Biblical languages during recent decades. It introduces not only how traditional teaching materials-textbooks, grammatical aids and lexical tools-have been developed in the Finnish context but also how the opportunities offered by such new technologies as the Internet have made it possible to transform the teaching and study of ancient-and allegedly dead!-languages into a more student-centered and interactive learning experience. It tries to illustrate how the study of Biblical languages is an integral part of Biblical scholarship. It is now much easier to start studying Hebrew and Greek than it used to be, thanks to the improved learning material available in the native language and new experiments made to blend classroom and on-line instruction. Recent developments at University of Helsinki have blown some fresh air into the study of Biblical languages.
