I’ve mentioned how I’ve neglected my Hebrew since I graduated seminary and now it’s catching up with me. Here’s an analogy. Hebrew is a pool/sea/other body of water and mostly I’ve been able to tread water well enough to keep my head above the surface, maybe even muster the strength to break out into a nice rhythm and actually swim. However, just about the time I get going, something happens and I find myself struggling to stay afloat!
Anyway, I am thoroughly enjoying exegeting the book of Ruth and hope to avoid completely drowning through the remainder of the semester.
A lesson for the kids out there–don’t neglect your languages when you finish seminary!
