One of the things I’ll be working on (already started, really) in 2010 at Logos is a DVD series for helping people use Hebrew tools for interpretation. A colleague of mine, Johnny Cisneros, is doing the Greek series. All told, it will be about 200 videos totaling 30-40 hours of instruction. These aren’t video’s of me and Johnny teaching a class. We’re doing something quite different.
Here’s the “pre-pub” page on the product. The DVDs can be purchased at a dramatically reduced price now (not sure how long that will last). I thought this audience might be interested (I’m not in sales, so I get ZERO commission; same for Johnny).
This is a very cool idea. Will the DVD’s be coming with an accompanying workbook or PDF-type textbook or anything? I’m thinking this is something to consider using when teaching Greek or Hebrew
Great Concept and nice DVD pre-pub promo. Another gift to myself. How many self gifts for the past month? Too many!
Johnnay and I will be including what we’re calling a “syllabus” – basically an annotated outline and description of the video content in a sentence or two, arranged in a sectional order. Along with that, we will have calendar breakdowns (how to fit them into 8, 15, and 30 week terms). It will also have suggested passages for repeating what is seen, and a brief explanation as to why those passages were chosen (hints at what we’d want students to find, or questions we’d want them to answer).
When do you anticipate they’ll be released?
I’ve been wanting to make more use of the original languages in Logos but haven’t known where to start. I typically just grab the lemma and look it up in a few dictionaries and then sift through a handful of verses to see how the word is used elsewhere, but that’s about it.
Looks like the perfect addition to what we’re learning with you in your Greek/Hebrew with Heiser courses.
@Chris: we hope to have the videos ready by June 1 so we can test run them at some Camp Logos events.
