I took an eTeacher Biblical Hebrew course with Anthony and learned so much more than the Hebrew Language. I especially loved it when he helped us translate Biblical text, e.g. from the Book of Ruth, to bring out gems we would not understand from our English translations. Anthony is an accomplished teacher who loves the Word of God and takes great joy in sharing his knowledge of ancient languages with others. I continue to benefit from his deep grasp of Biblical text.
