Take a few minutes and learn a little Hebrew:thumbz:

Remember the bible you read is a Jewish book, penned in Hebrew so a cursory understanding is needed.

First go here

AN INTRODUCTION TO HEBREW

The alphabet or Alef-bet in hebrew is at the very bottom of the page, why not copy and print it out to study? Smile

Learn more about the alef-bet and how there are things hidden from us in the translations that are apparent in Hebrew

STUDIES ON THE HEBREW ALPHABET

Learn here about acrostics in the Psalms and the ancient picture letters and their meanings.

Now lets do some
HEBREW WORD STUDIES

Now to understand truly what Yeshua/Jesus was saying go to the
NEW TESTAMENT APPLICATION OF HEBREW


Get some insights here on 'Hebrewisms' used in his day



Enjoy this little foray into the world of G-ds holy language!

If you have a taste for more there are many good teaching CD roms available and Rosetta stone also has Hebrew as one of their many easliy taught languages. Look for specials on both sets.

if everyone of them included a link to our forums we would be sorted.

Many people fail to recognise the fact that the Bible is a Hebrew book
compiled over 1500 years or more. One reason for the diverse and often
divergent Bible translations and paraphrases is that Hebrew is such a
deep and graphic

"the Bible is a Hebrew book"
language and with a worldview unlike our own in the West that we cannot
contain a 'full' translation and interpretation in just one English
translation. The alternative is either an armful of versions and
commentaries or to learn to read it in its original language. Just
imagine being able to read the Biblical text as Moses received it, as
Josiah and Ezra recovered it, and as Jesus read it.

>>"Only the Paraphrases of Moffatt and Barclay are correct with their idiomatic 'generous eye':

"generous/selfish eye" (Moffatt, Barclay)
For the phrase is indeed a Hebrew idiom for generosity as 'evil eye' is for 'selfishness'. The Hebrew phrase (twbh-`ayn) 'good eye' is used in Proverbs 22:9 where it is sometimes translated "a generous man". A good eye 'sees' a need and meets it. In modern English idiom one might use "open handed" and "tight fisted".

Other Hebrew sources such as the Jewish Mishnah and Talmud speak of 'good, middling and evil' eyes. For example, in the offerings of the first fruits:

"'a good eye' gave the fortieth, the house Shammai say, the thirtieth part; a middling one, the fiftieth; and an evil one, the sixtieth part." (Mishnah, Trumot, 4.3)
Upon which the Jewish commentators say, a 'good eye' means one that is liberal, and an 'evil eye' the contrary. Elsewhere one reads of 'trading, dedicating' and 'giving with a good' or 'an evil eye', that is, either generously, liberally, or in a niggardly and grudging manner.

"A good eye and a humble spirit and a lowly soul, those who have these are disciples of Abraham our Father" (Mishnah, Abth, 5.19)
Thus Jesus' meaning is that if a man is not covetous but is generous he will be blessed and righteous in all areas of life. "Your whole body" is simply a Hebrew metaphor for 'your whole person', 'you yourself'."<<

----------Now that's what i'm talken' 'bout!
