Whether you know Hebrew or not, this book will provide you with a quick reference resource for learning the meaning of many Hebrew words that lie beneath the English translations, which will open new doors for you into Biblical interpretation.

The Hebrew language of the Bible must be understood from its original and Ancient Hebrew perspective. Our interpretation of a word like "holy" is an abstract idea, derived out of a Greco-Roman culture and mindset, which is usually understood as someone or something that is especially godly, pious or spiritual. However, the Hebrew word קדוש (qadosh) means, from an Ancient Hebrew perspective, unique and is defined in this dictionary as: "Someone or something that has, or has been given the quality of specialness, and has been separated from the rest for a special purpose." With this interpretation, we discover that the nation of Israel is not "holy," in the sense of godliness or piety, but is a unique and special people, separated from all others to serve God.

This Biblical Hebrew dictionary contains the one thousand most frequent verbs and nouns found within the Hebrew Bible. Each word is translated and defined from its original concrete Ancient Hebrew perspective, allowing for a more accurate interpretation of the text. In addition to the one thousand verbs and nouns, the appendices in the book include a complete list of Hebrew pronouns, prepositions, adverbs, conjunctions and numbers.

JPN - Powerfull & Informative!!!
Provides Wonderful Background Information for the Hebrew Language/Alphabet... Benner has done an excellent job of taking his extensive research and condensing it down in to a clear and understandable manner. He seems to have written this as a caring teacher who wants his students to understand and learn. Great Job!!!

Jack Hornbeck - Anybody who is remotely interested in ancient Hebrew�
Anybody who is remotely interested in ancient Hebrew should own this book. It packs a lot of very useful information into a small package, and it is very inexpensive and gets straight to the point. Buy this book and add it to your collection. :-)

mtsofyisrael - A great study tool of the Ancient Hebrew!
Jeff Benner's books opened a whole new avenue of biblical study for me, as he explains the meaning of each Hebrew letter, aleph through tav. His books have provided a solid foundation on the study of the Ancient Hebrew language.

Jbluenull - Fabulous book IF you want the truth of the scriptures.
This book on each Hebrew letter which includes the Hebraic thought and the culture brings a full bodied teaching that will lay a great foundation to the study of Hebrew rather than the normal language lessons that others present. If you know how to read Hebrew great! BUT do you know why YAHWEH used this used that particular letter or word? Almost all of us only know what we were told or taught by another. This book delves into the whole Jeff Benner approach on his education center of his website......I am home schooling and we are learning Hebrew through Jeff Benner's books and website modules.....If you are interested in the Torah - even though you might not know Hebrew nor want to learn to read or write it - you will love this book just on the Hebraic thought and culture.
