John Hobbins' Plea for a Broad Definition of Ancient Hebrew

For those interested in learning about “Biblical” Hebrew, though not necessarily in learning the language, check out John Hobbins’ recent post concerning Ancient Hebrew.  Since the post is called a plea it goes without saying that not everyone would agree with all of the information found therein.  However, it is a helpful overview for the interested lay person as well as containing helpful reminders for the more advanced scholar, e.g. this one: “For these reasons, the phonology, morphology, syntax, and prosody of ancient Hebrew is, in varying degrees, a matter of reconstruction.”
