" The fact that the "New Testament" texts we have are in Greek, makes them no more "Greek documents" than the Septuagint (Greek) version of the Old Testament, which the rabbis wrote into Greek 200 years before Yeshua. The rabbis did this (as did someone at some point with the "New Testament" letters), for the benefit of the non-Jewish world so that they could also learn of the God and faith of Israel. Thus, the "New Testament" documents remain Hebrew texts written in a Hebrew mindset, and must be studied that way, if we are to determine what the authors' meanings are. And until we learn the true original meaning, discussing "what the verse means to us" (as is done in many so called "studies") is a an exercise in futility and leads to error.

Benner Why Learn Hebrew? There are many reasons to learn Hebrew such as to read the Tenach (the Old Testament of the Bible written in Hebrew) in its original language or simply to learn how to pronounce Hebrew words such as those in Strong's Concordance without having to use the transliterations. Probably the most advantageous reason to learn Hebrew is the ability to understand the original author's words, rather than through the translator's opinion of the author's words.

Biblical Hebrew Resources

I have included many of them here to encourage anyone interested in learning (and mastering) Classical Hebrew -- the original language of the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible. If you have not taken any Biblical Hebrew yet, and want some guidance in terms of Hebrew textbooks, then you will want to look at my Learning Biblical Hebrew Page where I survey available introductory Hebrew grammars.

For students with one year of introductory Hebrew under their belt, I have put together a set of pages for Mastering Biblical Hebrew. These pages highlight a number of resources that may help you gain further proficiency in Classical Hebrew. I have also put together a page on Hebrew Terminology that will help cut through some of the confusion that besets students once they move beyond their introductory grammars.
