"It has been fun, good materials, excellent teacher and a learning environment!"
"I am still experiencing a few 'glitches' in scheduling Aramaic A as the link sends me back to Hebrew A class. I know you will get it worked out soon. Thank You."
"I enjoy very much the lessons with Roberto Cole. They are very interesting and also amusing. I feel that I am improoving my knowledge of The Bible and the language."

Biblical Hebrew Teacher, and Teacher of the Hebrew Bible, Holy Land Studies, and Jewish Background of the New Testament

A Few Words About Me

The Hebrew Bible is a literary masterpiece, not only in its individual compositions but also in its canonical shape and unity. The triple consonantal alliteration exhibited in the first two words of the Hebrew Bible is their most salient literary, and consequently, interpretive feature. Oddly enough, this most important aspect of the opening words of the entire work has been largely ignored across the spectrum of scholarship.


Mr. Atkinson has a PhD and MA in Semitic Languages from UCLA, ThM and MDiv from TEDS, Deerfield, IL, and a BA from Western Michigan University.
