A History of Hebrew: Its Language and Philosophy
By Jeff A. Benner

Publisher: Ancient Hebrew Research Center
Time: 1 hr. 23 min.

This 83 minute video explores the history of the Hebrew Bible, called the Old Testament by Christians and the Tanakh by Jews, and its language and philosophy. The Hebrew Bible is an Ancient Near Eastern text, which was written millennia ago within a time and culture that is vastly different from our own. The authors' perspectives on life and the world around them are steeped with their own traditions, lifestyles, manners and thoughts. When reading and studying this text we cannot interject our own cultural perspectives into the text. To do so would bring about interpretations and conclusions that are far removed from the authors intended meaning.

We will be examining the Hebrew alphabet, language, philosophy and culture to uncover the evidence that supports a perspective of these ancient Near Eastern texts that is very different from the way they are normally perceived, and we will dig into the deeper meanings of these texts from an ancient perspective.
