This is my first venture in this new medium. It’s called…
5 Hebrew Words
that Every Christian
A Bite-Sized Bible Study
This is an introductory word study of five of my favorite Hebrew words. It is written for a general Christian audience, folks who are involved in Bible study, but want to go deeper. Even though it’s a brief study, readers are given enough grasp of a few key words that they’ll be able to keep using them in future Bible reading.
The book doesn’t assume its audience has read my writing about the Jewish context of Jesus. Rather, it broadly introduces the idea that Bible study is far richer when we read the Scriptures in light of their original language and culture.
There’s a specific reason why I chose the eBook format. Unlike a printed book, it allows me to link to a Bible study website so that readers can compare Bible translations. Comparative word studies are a great way to see the breadth of how words can be translated. I’ve often wished I could do this in a printed book, but readers can’t be expected to have stack of Bibles at hand. Instead of just being told about the wideness of Hebrew words, people can examine them for themselves.
The ebook should available from this website within a week, Lord willing. I’d appreciate your prayers for technical issues and final edits. I hope not to keep you waiting. Tell your friends, and check back soon!
Update: The ebook is now available in the ORJ bookstore and on this page:
