JEFF A. BENNER has authored over twenty books related to the studies of the alphabet, language and culture of the Bible and is an instructor in Biblical Hebrew and has taught thousands how to read the Bible in Hebrew for themselves.

Mr. Benner desires to assist his readers with proper Biblical interpretation, based on the original Hebraic context of the Bible, so they may gain a deeper understanding and insight into the intended meaning of the words of the Scriptures. He discovered that most Biblical and Hebrew teachings are missing a key ingredient, a cultural background to the language of the Bible. To this end, he has dedicated over 20 years of research, documenting the connections between the language of the Bible and the culture in which it was written.

Mr. Benner, along with his wife Denise and their children, lives in Mississippi in a log house they built on their wooded property. They are working to build a self-sustaining homestead.

You may contact Mr. Benner through his email address, but please, be brief and to the point and patient for a response as he receives hundreds of emails each month.
