The Mysterious and Incredible Language of Hebrew
Pastor Jentezen Franklin has recently made Israel an even larger focus of Free Chapel and Kingdom Connection through his important new ministry “Comfort My People.” You have supported the devastated community of Moshav Mevo Modi’im and provided life-sustaining assistance to more than 60 families who lost everything in a horrific fire this summer. Your assistance has been so appreciated by the people of Israel as we have shown in several videos where the children and the families express their deepest gratitude towards all the partners of Kingdom Connection. However, Pastor Franklin’s heart to connect with Israel is deeper than just providing humanitarian support.
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 prophecy.
The Jewish people just finished with our High Holy Day season that began with Rosh Hashanah, 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, “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 Israel 365 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.
