9780974948201: Listening to the Language of the Bible

Listening to the Language of the Bible is a guide for discovering the richness of the Scriptures in their Hebraic setting.

The book contains more than 60 brief, illustrated devotional articles that unpack the meaning of biblical words and phrases for life today. By examining the Hebrew and Jewish cultural context of some of the Bible's seemingly odd phrases, it shares insights that clarify reading and deepen Bible study. By examining the Hebraic, Jewish cultural context of some of the Bible's seemingly odd phrases, it shares insights that clarify reading and deepen Bible study. Readers will discover the deeper meaning of the Scriptures in light of its heart-language, Hebrew.

Listening explores a variety of topics from the perspective of the original biblical setting including prayer, family and the promised Messiah. The book also considers how Jesus' Jewish context sheds light on his powerful words. Readers will find each new insight a useful tool for Bible study, and refer to the book again and again.

Listening can be read by itself for a brief overview, or with its Companion Bible Study (Tverberg, 2005) to further explore the Scriptures from a Hebraic perspective.

From the Inside Flap:

The Bible speaks in words and phrases that come from a very different culture, place and time. Sometimes its Hebraic ideas sound foreign to our ears, but when we enter the minds of its ancient authors, we discover wonderful new depth and meaning. Come with us as we learn from the Bible's rich phrases and imagery, and gain new insights on its words for our lives.
