    Having previously read some of the author's work, I was already familiar with some of the words in this book. I have finally learned that knowing the Hebrew word from a Bible translation gives a much better understanding of the verse or event.

Learning this way is a blessing for those of us not fluent in Hebrew, yet want to understand the Bible better without having to pursue serious study of the language. Thank you Lois for writing this ebook and look forward to additional word studies.

    5 Hebrew Words that Every Christian Should Know is a quick read at 46 pages, but it will leave you hungering for more. The intention is for it to serve as a Hebrew language appetizer (which is the example the author uses in the introduction, not to mention that it is subtitled A Bite-Sized Bible Study.)

The intention is for it to serve as a Hebrew language appetizer (which is the example the author uses in the introduction, not to mention that it is subtitled A Bite-Sized Bible Study.) It provides a starting point to delving into the Hebrew language and points you toward resources to undertake a deeper study of the five concepts presented. I’m looking forward to Tverberg’s upcoming book titled Reading the Bible With Rabbi Jesus which promises to be a practical and insightful take on Bible study, including a deeper discussion on Hebrew words and other “big-picture” ideas that often remain concealed in English translations of Scripture.

    A book that all Christians should read Christians should surely profit in their biblical studies using this book. It definitely leads me to want more . I sometimes cringe when I hear the words " hear and obey " It reminds me somehow of robots and I don't believe God wants robots . I believe God wants us to know why the laws are important . Think about why the Hebrews were told not to eat pigs . Pigs have parasites that can be deadly to humans unless they are raised in a very sterile condition .

    Very good short study The electronic book has links to the Biblegateway.com web-site which allow wonderfully for comparisons between different English translations. This was a wonderful feature. (Although something in the link is not quite right and I needed to replace 3A with a colon at the Bible Gateway website to have the correct scripture reference come up.). Content was very educational - would recommend to others.

    Short but good For the shortness of this book, it packs in lots of information, resources, and opportunities to take the topic further. The information contained in this book may not all be completely new concepts to seasoned studiers of the Word, but Tverberg consistently new insights throughout.

    Really, really good and helpful for better understanding the Bible. Here's a little taste about the Hebrew word Shema usually translated hear: “The word shema can refer to hearing or to any of the actions that result: listening, understanding, responding, doing what is asked.

    This short, but powerful, book teaches us five important Hebrew words that could have a stunning impact on how you read the Bible. English has some 100,000+ words. Hebrew has just 4,000.

English has some 100,000+ words. Hebrew has just 4,000. What Christians call the Old Testament was written in Hebrew, so when it is translated into English, meanings can change. A lot. With fewer words in the Hebrew language, many words have more than one meaning. One of the five words featured in this book is "yirah." Yirah is usually translated as "fear"--as in "fear the Lord your God." But yirah can also mean something very different--awe, respect or reverence. Think how the meaning is changed: Revere the Lord your God. In other words, when the Bible speaks of being in fear of God, it is a more accurate translation from the Hebrew to being in awe of God. But yirah can also refer to how we worship; hence, the Bible describes "God-fearers," but a more accurate meaning is "God-worshippers." Well, THAT's different! The Kindle version has links to three different Bible translations so readers can quickly see the impact of word choice on the meaning of the verse. This is an eye-opening little tome about the power of language, especially when it comes to reading the Bible.
