The start of a New Hebrew Class

We have just had our mid Fall semester transition to continuing biblical Hebrew. We say farewell to a few of our classmates who will not be continuing. Here is our class photo:
 As a bonus, no extra charge, here is a drawing I made of the newly unearthed seal/bulla of Hezekiah:
The bulla includes a two-winged sun disk flanked by ankh symbols and containing a Hebrew inscription that reads “Belonging to Hezekiah, (son of) Ahaz, king of Judah.” The bulla was discovered in a refuse dump located next to a 10th-century B.C.E. royal building in the Ophel.
