Course Info

This course invites you to re-read some Biblical passages and reexamine them by looking at original Hebrew terms and exploring the roots that stand behind them. The course is based on Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg's book "40 Days of Hebrew Devotions". These word studies are perfect for those who wish to build up their Biblical Hebrew vocabulary. But no Hebrew reading skills are necessary. The insights are short, to the point, and designed to be devotional in nature, prompting you to rethink the familiar passages of Scripture. Prepare to be pleasantly surprised as you uncover previously unseen gems in God’s Word.
