  • It is something i have been searching for, a way to get past the translations and get to the deeper meaning of God’s word. Sheli

Amazing: Two different English words for one Biblical Hebrew word
7 Lectures 40:10

You will see that a Biblical Hebrew primitive root -- the most fundamental word structure -- can have various derivatives and various meanings.

You'll learn and be able to identify opposite meanings of the same Biblical Hebrew word. This is impossible to do in translations. To top it off, frankly most Hebrew 'scholars' are not aware of this important aspect of the Bible language.

One Biblical Hebrew Word = 2+ English Translations
07:27

The English translations 'naked' and 'subtil' come from the same Hebrew root 'aram' and this Biblical Hebrew word can be both a positive and negative descriptive. You'll learn that this 'opposition' means we have to dig into the Biblical Hebrew to unlock a fuller meaning.

'Naked' ... The Positive and Negative implications - Your Exercise
03:04

Adam and Eve's positive nakedness/wisdom is associated with clean clothes. On the other hand, the serpent's negative subtlety and guile are associated with dirty clothing. You'll learn that there are other exciting Bible Study themes that tie in very well with the postive/negative nakedness/subtlety.

'Ashamed' ... other Biblical Hebrew meanings - Your Exercises
01:30

Adam and Eve were 'naked' and 'not ashamed'. We've already seen that the Bliblical Hebrew word 'Aram' for 'naked' is also translated 'wisdom'. In this lesson you'll see that the Biblical Hebrew word for 'ashamed' is the equivalent of 'confused'. 

This unlocks Bible meaning and give further comprehension of this verse: Adam and Eve were wise and not confused.

Teacher, Author, Worldview crafter

I was born in London and has lived in the United Kingdom, South Africa, Spain, Canada, Israel, Belgium, and—for the past thirty-five years—France. After spending twenty-five years in the Christian ministry in Quebec and France, I taught website creation at the American University in Paris and worked as a technical writer.

In 1998 I founded BonjourLaFrance.com, which has become a successful site for travel and tourism in France. I'm currently occupied with webmastering, studying, teaching, speaking, and writing including my blog The Explanation.

Inventory of the Universe, my first book is published with Audit of the Universe and Origin of the Universe on the way. Not to give everything away, but this third book delves into Genesis and the Biblical Hebrew. 

I started learning Hebrew at the age of 10 and lived in Israel for 2 years where I learnt 'street Hebrew.' Since then unfortunately, not having used the language, I've forgotten a lot but what I do know has helped me immensely with comprehension and 'getting around' with Biblical Hebrew. 

During my ministry studying the original language of the Old Testament threw new light on words and hence subjects and understanding. 

To be right up front with you some time after I left the full time ministry I began thinking of writing about Bible comprehension via Biblical Hebrew but I wasn't sure that my method was valid. To verify that I took 2 years of online courses with eTeacherHebrew where I could learn and ask questions. In so doing I came to the conclusion that my method is valid.

It is that method, of understanding the Bible via Biblical Hebrew - without learning the alphabet, the grammar ... or the vocabulary, that I'll share with you during this course.

Sounds a little far-fetched. Well, you will have to use a couple of 'tools' to do this but everything is online, free and accessible 24/7/365 for your on-going study. This course will help you get started in your quest to better understand the Bible.
