BIBLE LANGUAGES

 
The Hebrew language is one of the oldest surviving languages known today, and is the official language of Israel – which explicitly connects its modern significance to its ancient biblical origins. Since the Israelites are God’s chosen people, it could be said that Hebrew is God’s chosen language. It was the language in which most of the Bible was originally written, and Bible scholars study Hebrew specifically to illuminate original linguistic meanings, contexts, and obtain a more in-depth Scriptural understanding. By studying Hebrew, a Bible reader can absorb Scripture like the best biblical scholars and break down any modern translational discrepancies for him/herself.

 

 

 


Goals and Features of This Course

  • Equip the student with a basic understanding of Hebrew in order to enhance the study of Scripture.
  • The assumption is made that the students have none or very little experience with the Hebrew language.
  • We will focus on modern Hebrew and, specifically, the Sephardic pronunciation.
  • This approach will provide the foundation to build upon with future courses such as Hebrew 201.
  • The student will also learn how to write each of the Hebrew letters.
  • Each session will contain reading exercises.
 
This course delves deeply into prayer as it appears in Scripture and in the traditions of Hebraic culture. Prayer has taken many forms over the course Judeo-Christian history, starting with the traditions of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Sacrifice and prayer were the ways in which a lost humankind reconnected with God in the Old Testament, and the same principles still apply. Gleaning from his lifetime of experience in prayer and in studying Hebraic culture, Perry Stone gives a comprehensive look at biblical prayer and the practices believers can still use today.
 
This course explores the Creation account through the lens of Hebraic language and philosophy. Thanks to his many years of study and his expertise in Hebrew and Hebraic culture, teacher Bill Cloud is able to convey the complex symbolism, imagery, and language used in Scripture in greater depth than typical biblical commentary. Mr. Cloud goes beyond surface-level exegesis to give context and meaning to one of the most foundational stories of the Christian worldview.
 
This course focuses on the seven festivals of Israel and their prophetic interpretation from a Messianic, Hebraic perspective. Perry Stone and Bill Cloud teach this course in front of a very large audience using life sized props to illustrate their points.  You will see real tables when they explain the Festival of Passover and the Seder meal, real booth replicas for the Feast of Tabernacles, and much more. This course is not just taught, it is illustrated in an elaborate setting of colors, sounds, and textures that bring every lesson to life.
 
The Old Testament was originally written in Hebrew. It is one of the oldest surviving languages and the official language of Israel.

Our Hebrew teacher, Bill Cloud, will help you achieve competency in the pronunciation of the Hebrew text, acquire a working knowledge of biblical Hebrew grammar, and develop skills in the usage of a Hebrew lexicon.

Genesis is a divine book. It’s much more than a book of beginnings. This book contains the blueprint for all Bible prophecy which will occur during man’s time on the earth. Genesis is a book of firsts: the first man, the first woman, the first marriage, the first childbirth, the first family, the first animals, the first day and night, the first blessing, the first curse, the first murder, the first nations, the first language, and so much more. It is important to study this prophetic book from the original Hebrew language so that you may grasp the vast understanding of this divine, prophetic book.

 
This course explores Jewish history, culture, and writings to give an account of the Hebraic view of the Messiah and how Christians can reconcile that with their belief in Christ. It is important to remember that the Jews have a different perspective on Jesus if Christians are to reach Jews and unite with the nation of Israel as God intends. Thanks to his many years of study and his expertise in Hebrew and Hebraic culture, teacher Bill Cloud is able to convey the complex symbolism, imagery, and language used in Scripture and in Jewish writings.
