5 Hebrew Words that Every Christian Should Know is a friendly, bite-sized study of five flavorful Hebrew words.
Readers will get a taste of the ancient wisdom of Hebrew, the Bible’s heart-language, and see how useful it can be for reading both Old and New Testaments. Along the way they’ll uncover delightful word-plays that simply don’t translate into English, and find out how Hebrew unlocks mysteries like…
…how people can have ears but not “hear”
…how (or if) God can “forget” a person
…how sins can be “visited” upon someone
5 Hebrew Words was written as an ebook because the online format allows readers to use links to view each Bible verse in multiple translations. Seeing how different translators interpret a Hebrew word is often helpful for getting a sense of a word’s range of meaning. Readers are invited to reflect on how the deeper meaning of each Hebrew word impacts what the Scriptures are saying to their own lives.
The ebook allows readers to experience for themselves how translators deal with the expansiveness of Hebrew words, which are richer and wider than their English equivalent. Each study yields insights that will enrich Bible reading for years to come. Through the book’s brief lessons, 5 Hebrew Words reveals that Bible study is far richer when we read the Scriptures in light of their original language and culture.
