The Jewish people just finished with our High Holy Day season that began with Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year on October 1. Ten days later we marked the fast day of Yom Kippur followed by the 8 day Feast of Tabernacles which concluded last week.
Jews worldwide now begin to read from the Torah (the 5 Books of Moses) each Sabbath in synagogue. This week we will be reading the portion of Noah which contains a fascinating lesson just after the story of the flood. When the first people begin to rebuild civilization following the devastation, it says that “the whole world had one language and one purpose” (Genesis 11:1). According to Jewish belief, that language was Hebrew.
Hebrew is an incredible language, and the more Christians explore it, the more they can connect with the Bible.
I have written on Israel365.com about how Hebrew will be the language of the Messiah and how Scripture promises that in the future, all nations will call out to the Lord in Hebrew, the language of the Bible.
Recently, a conference was held in Jerusalem that focused on the academic study of Edenics, recognizing Hebrew as the mother of all other languages. There is a fascinating article on Breaking Israel News that interviews Dr. Isaac Mozeson who outlines how all modern languages emerged from Hebrew, the language they spoke in Genesis.
When you connect with Israel, you are also connecting with the language of Israel, the language of Hebrew. Learning more about Hebrew will add great meaning to your life as a Christian as it is the language of Biblical history and Biblical prophesy.
