Dramatic Recitation of Jonah in Hebrew

A fellow Wheaton OT student sent me a link to a dramatic recitationOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA of the book of Jonah in Hebrew by Elizabeth Graves, lecturer in Hebrew at Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia). You can find it here. This is a fantastic performance (don’t worry, there are English subtitles). The Hebrew dialogue comes alive as Graves acts out the events of the story. This is a pleasure to watch, but would also be a good teaching tool for those learning Hebrew. Most Hebrew readings of the Bible are so fast that beginners have a difficult time following along, but this recitation is slow enough that even a beginner will have no trouble following in the text.


About Peter Green

I am a doctoral student at Wheaton College. My dissertation is on vineyard imagery in the Old Testament, particularly as it is used to convey the theme of Creation to New Creation. My interests are (in no particular order): biblical ethics, epistemology, apologetics, sacramentology, science and faith, biblical theology, OT theology, biblical political philosophy, and intertextuality. I consider myself to be in the historic Reformed tradition, and attend a PCA church. I graduated from Covenant Theological Seminary--the PCA's denominational seminary--and hope work for Reformed University Fellowship, which is the PCA's campus ministry, following my PhD studies.
