In this episode of the podcast, we spoke with Gary Rendsburg who is a professor of biblical studies, Hebrew language and ancient Judaism at Rutgers University. He holds the Blanche and Irving Laurie Chair in Jewish History.
Professor Rendsburg is an expert on the historical development of the Hebrew language and ancient Hebrew dialects, which was the focus of our discussion. We also discuss other influences on the Hebrew language in antiquity and how other Semitic languages, such as Arabic, can help us decipher ancient Hebrew.
You can purchase Professor Rendsburg's book 'Israelian Hebrew' on Amazon.
