NOTE ON GREEK LANGUAGE AND HEBREW
From time to time in the lecture materials of this course will come across words from the Greek language or Hebrew. Do not worry about this, since knowledge of these languages is not necessary for this course. Moreover, when using words in Greek or Hebrew (in the working tetral, glossary or test), their transliteration will be presented (in Russian letters). However, it would be useful, at least, to get acquainted with the alphabet of biblical languages and the way of their transliteration. If you are interested, we offer for your consideration the following sources:
