Amos Obadiah Jonah (NAC 19b; Nashville, TN: Broadman & Holman, 1995). • Be more like God in terms of your vision for God’s work in the world. • Be more like God in your compassion on those who are not like you.___________________________________________________________________ Page 2 Hebrew 3: Hebrew Exegesis (Electronic) TEXTS USED IN THE COURSE All Available as Logos Books • Futato, Mark D.

ASSIGNMENTS Reading • Read the material assigned in Futato, Jonah. • Read the material assigned in Putnam, Syntax. • Read the material assigned in Page, Jonah. Notebook • Answer all of the questions in the Notebook Questions (see below). Discussion • Participate in the online discussion forums: eleven posts and eleven replies. • The discussion forums will be based on your preparation of the assigned portion of Jonah and the corresponding reading in Futato and Page. Reflection Posts • You will post seven reflections, one on each of the seven sections of Jonah. • The reflections are due the week after the final verse of the section is covered, which means the due dates are not evenly spaced and that the final reflection is due on the day when papers are normally due. • The reflections are to be more personal than exegetical. They are to reflect that you have grown in your understanding of the text through your exegetical study, but they are to focus on how each text applies to your life and ministry. • The Minimum length of each post is 200 words and the maximum length is 250 words.___________________________________________________________________ Page 3 Hebrew 3: Hebrew Exegesis (Electronic) ASSESSMENTS Notes: 1.
