The Hebrew Language
This is a short review made by me after watching Larry Ollison's message entitled, "The Hebrew Language". (For those of you that might like to check it out it is available on his website or Cfaith.) I do strive to understand the Bible so I use a Strong's and a Vine's and other means of study tools, but I am not very familiar with the Hebrew Language in and of itself. Every word on this earth today, evolved from Hebrew. The Hebrew language has been around longer than any other form of language. Actually, the Hebrew language has no history of origin. The Hebrew language is read from right to left. The very name of Jesus 'YHVH' means .. "Yod-hand, Hey-behold,Vav-nail,Hey-behold". Behold nail, behold hand. Wow, what an awesome testimony to the Bible. Also, the words in the NT 'alpha' and 'omega' (which are Greek) are translated into Hebrew as 'Aleph' and 'Tav'. These words 'Aleph' and 'Tav' were originally inserted into the Pentetauch, but there was no meaning or understanding of these words at the time, so the translaters left the words out. They were inserted in the first book and the first verse of the Bible (wow!). The Hebrew Language is like a digital recording when all other languages are in an analog format. Analog means that the quality of the language suffered over time. Digital means first quality every time, no matter how many times recorded. The Hebrew Language is multi-dimensional and is more than words, and includes colors and numbers and sounds. It is considered to be mathematic and every letter has a corresponding number. The Hebrew word for 'computer' existed long before the actual computer, meaning it has deep spiritual roots. Wow, can any other religion boast about it's own book in this fashion as we can about our Bible? Just something to pass on to my brothers and sisters in Christ. God bless and shalom!
