Hebrew 4 Christians
I do not know why people write ‘Hebrew 4 Christians’, as opposed to using the word ‘for’. I am just going to roll with it. It is clearly an abbreviation. But I am not here to talk about grammar; what I really want to talk about is why Hebrew 4 Christians is so important in the Christian community. Having done some research, it is evident that Hebrew 4 Christians is an important part of the Christian community.
The Christian connection to the Jewish Bible, or as it is also known as the Old Testament dates back to when Jesus was preaching to his followers. It is important to note that Jesus was, in fact, Jewish. He was raised with the knowledge of the Jewish Bible. According to the Kansas City Star, an American Christian publication, Jesus said that he did not want to abolish the law of the prophets (from the Jewish Bible). In order for Christians to understand was Jesus was talking about, and to read The Prophets in the original text, they need to know to read Hebrew. This is why Hebrew 4 Christians is an important part of Christianity.
Accordingly, Christians believe that just as in the early church, Christians today need the Old Testament for preaching and in which to reference and understand Jesus’s purpose (as per Christian belief.
Yet another reason why the concept of Hebrew 4 Christians exists. Christians reference the Jewish Bible all the time, for example, it is in the Hebrew Bible that Christians find the revelation about God's covenant promises. In the Abrahamic Covenant God promises a land, a nation, and a blessing that will extend from Israel to all the nations of the earth. Hebrew 4 Christians permeates all parts of Christianity due to the fact that the Old Testament plays a strong role in the church as the original bible.
The Easy Learn Hebrew story began in 1986 when I became involved with Rabbi Lampert's teaching methods as a tutor in the 'Learn To Read Hebrew In One Day' course.
This course took students, who could not read a word of Hebrew at the beginning of the day, and by the end of the day they could read Hebrew, slowly, but correctly.
In 1999, I completed my Bachelor of Arts majoring in Hebrew, and, as part of my degree, spent a year in Israel studying Hebrew at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. In 2008, I became the primary instructor for the 'Learn To Read Hebrew In One Day' course.
Whilst conducting these face to face courses it occurred to me that this unique classroom-based method could be transferred to an online format to make it accessible to people all around the world, and so the Easy Learn Hebrew program was born!
The Easy Learn Hebrew program is the 'Learn To Read Hebrew In One Day' classroom course 'online', however offering much more in terms of being able to revise the 'classroom' content online repeatedly via the videos, take the online quizzes and being able to print out the associated hard copy learning materials as required.
I am very excited to make this program available and look forward to welcoming you as an online Easy Learn Hebrew student.
