Ancient Hebrew Torah
By Jeff A. Benner
This is the whole of the Torah, in its original pictographic script, not the modern Aramic square sript. In addition, the spelling of many words have been corrected, by repacing certain vowel pointings with Hebrew letters, to reflect the spellings of words as has been found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Also available is the companion volume the Ancient Hebrew Torah Lexicon. (308 pages)
“I would really recommend this to anybody who is interested in reading hebrew, it's beautifully and thoughtfully put together!”
“I am learning Ancient Hebrew and find each book by Mr. Benner to be interesting, very helpful, and I love them all.”
The first five books of the Hebrew Bible, called the Torah (a Hebrew word meaning "teachings"), are the foundation to the rest of the Bible. While there are many Torah books available, most of them use the square Aramaic script that is only about two thousand years old, but now, with the Ancient Hebrew Torah, the Torah can be read and studied through the original pictographic script from the time of Abraham and Moses. Each letter in this ancient script is a picture, where each picture represents a concrete idea. The Hebrew word , often translated as "God," is a picture of an ox head, representing power, and a shepherd staff, representing authority. These two letters, when combined into a word, mean "one of power and authority." When the Torah is read from this perspective, the text comes to life.
