      The course titled "LA171 Learn to Use Biblical Hebrew in Logos" focuses not on learning Biblical Hebrew itself, as stated in the title but rather on harnessing the power of Logos for the study of Biblical Hebrew. Personally, I have found this course to be remarkably impactful and beneficial in my personal pursuits. Despite not having prior Hebrew education, this program has instilled confidence in my personal studies, ensuring that I am on the right track and providing guidance on how to review both my own work and that of others. Mastery of Logos proves to be a potent asset, and this course has equipped me with the skills to maximize the utility of my Logos purchase. Consequently, I now approach the re-reading of God's Word with a newfound and enhanced understanding of how to do research.

      This course teaches us biblical Hebrew language tools, not biblical Hebrew. A more appropriate name for this course would be Biblical Hebrew Language Tools. I wanted to learn biblical Hebrew. I wasted my money. This course will help us perform word studies.

      I wanted to write a review when LA 151 came out but didn’t. Now that LA 171 is out I just feel as though someone should review this product. First of all, Michael Heiser is to be commended on his effort producing this resource. I believe Dr. Heiser is exceptionally qualified to undertake producing this mobile ed. course. It is hard to rate this product without qualifying my rating. If this course was intended for new believers still doing word studies with a Strongs Concordence book then I would have no problem rating this course as a “4 star”. I just feel as though Faithlife has missed an opportunity to produce an exceptional product that would appeal to a much larger market if it had done things a little different. I suppose the main reason I am writing this review is because after watching both LA 151 and LA 171 many times I just don’t understand Michael Heiser’s comment on Dr. John Walton’s article in NIDOTTE. I don’t understand Faithlife allowing it in the first place nor letting it stand in the new version. If anyone would care to check the facts you would see that John Walton was correct in his statement, “There is no basis in the context, however, for identifying any of these as a nuance of עַלְמָה.” Dr. Walton qualifies this statement later in the article saying, “It is evident that the primary meaning of the word has to do with sexual maturity and, by extension, the age of the young woman, not with sexual experience or the lack of it. That the word may be used of a virgin is evident: it is not used, however, to define her virginity, but to define her capacity for marriage.” Faithlife should apologize to Dr. Walton for letting this go on for this many years.
