Beginning Hebrew Lesson #1



loyalty loyalty how was it a joke in people Shalom and welcome to beginning biblical hebrew today we're going to just jump right in we're going to do with the semitic languages we're going to deal with the hebrew people and why they spoke the way that they did and how also how other people around them also spoke and understood a similar form of language that was based on a bio agricultural relationship we also deal with ancient Hebrew thought verses Greek or Western thought and how that is very important when it comes to understanding and defining he rewards so Hebrew belongs to a Semitic family of languages we're going to look at the early Hebrew script the middle and the late and we're going to determine if by changing these actual characters has a definition of the words change or have the Semitic family of languages actually kept their original meaning only script has changed over time there are over seventy seven branches of Semitic languages today but they all have something in common and that is the fact that pictographs unify the Hebrew language was originally made up of pictographic alaric ters that represented different things that could be either seen touched taste smelled or felt around the hebrew the hebrew lived a nomadic lifestyle and this lifestyle allowed them to be in contact and in unison with the things around them the Hebrews are like other Semitic people also live the same particular lifestyle where they were connected to the land and so their language has similar connections the Hebrew language unifies it's one of the few languages on the planet that if a person knows what each letter or character means that first can actually find out a very close definition of the word the thought of the ancient was a concrete thought this type was not dealt with the function of something and not necessarily the form as the Greeks do the function of something for instance and a strong leader or an L would have been viewed as a bull not because people were necessarily paying and worshiped bulls which people did but the fact that the strong ox or the the bull was what was used to do the heavy work and it was very very prized and valuable to nomadic people because of this then the olive or the chief or the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet would be considered the olive it's the strong leader it leaves the rest of the letters in the Hebrew olive pit common understanding due to a bio agricultural lifestyle because of these connections like an ox or a house or the feet that carry you and walk or the door to your tent then you're going to see all of these things in the Hebrew alphabet and I'll actually have two in the middle or at the end show you a chart of this and this is something that we're going to be studying and that you should study on your own in order to get more familiar with the type of things that were surrounding the Hebrew people these pictures are the basis or the foundation of later characters or images that would relate to these pictures so how we got to the modern script is a very very is a very very big question it's a great question actually throughout time from and we're going to start from number one make our way to 14 there have been changes to how we write these letters but what I'm going to show you in a second is that the way we write these letters does not change the actual definition of what each of these letters mean so you see the Phoenician people and you see they have the paleo olive you see Aramaic and this is their beginning and you can see it resembles a paleo obby I mean olive the Nabataean people you can see the similarities early Arabic there's a little different you can go through and maybe in the gimel you can see it you can see it in the modern hebrew where you've made a transition by blending early Middle Eastern or cinematical languages to getting our modern script here we have the paleo olive bed so you have olive which represents an ox bet which represents a house gimel is a picture of a camel dalit a door hey a window wha or ooh a hook Zion a weapon het a fence tete is actually a basket or surrounding Yoda a hand Koff the palm of a hand lammott an ox goad or a staff member noon a fish Tomic to support or proper to stand up I am and I pay a mouth zotti a fishhook or a hunter Cove is set on the horizon resh ahead shin teeth or nashor's and tall Oh Tao a March sign or a covenant will be frequently going through each of these and I'll explain them one at a time you're going to see that all of these things were things were a part of their biological between one another and their agricultural relationship that's why they all have a definition based upon something that they use every day the reason why a lot of us don't understand the Hebrew language or even modern Hebrew speakers don't understand the Hebrew language is because they're disconnected from the original intent of the Creator which was to be in relation to your environment we're going to see that in the Hebrew language there is the necessity for relationship with your environment and I will lay heavily on that throughout this series that we have to go back to gardening and back to a more free and symbiotic relationship with one another and the ground in order to actually begin to implement those things that are in the Hebrew language based upon the nature of family and languages each group depending on where they were would have had a slightly different way of saying some of these letters so I don't want you to necessarily become rigid and only pronounce something how you pronounce it as an American and can't see how a person who speaks Amharic which is Ethiopian can see a similar ordinance sound kind of different that is a nature of a link of family language and also it deals heavily with the fact that the languages have been confused and because of the confusion of the languages because of the Tower of Babel we do tend to say things differently but the beauty of this is that our pictures behind our letters are what unify us and bring us back to a place where we can actually communicate one with another based upon the nature and the bio agricultural setting that we are supposed to be in in connection to the ground in our family so the letter A in English for instance we'll use that for Olive means nothing at a is an A an A in a word makes a sound and sometimes that sound isn't even consistent or in Hebrew that's not necessarily true when there is it olive in a word that Aleph actually has a function and it gives a definition I share with you earlier how the Aleph is an ox or a strong leader and we say el well the Aleph is an ox and the llama is obviously an ox goad but it's actually a staff or a or something that's used to control the the animal or something else so if the Aleph is a strong leader then the staff in his hand will be used to then control those who are under him or family and you see how those things easily relate together or if you take it and in English and L in English it doesn't make that same correlation so there's a lot of people who say you don't have to know Hebrew because we speak English now but English is a spruce is a broken language that doesn't have any meaning within it it takes definitions and it defines them and those definitions cost people to act but it causes people to act an error if you don't have if you have someone defining something based upon their own interpretation and then giving it to you you then act that out one of the things that's very interesting about the natives is that they felt that written language was almost a form of witchcraft because a person can write something down and it could cause a person to do something but what has happened now is that language and the way that words are defined have become that same type of witchcraft especially with the English language where these words can ambiguously mean whatever a person wants them to mean and if at anytime that meaning becomes antiquated we can change it to them meet our current culture or Hebrew doesn't do that it stays within the culture of the people so what Aleph is always going to be an ox it doesn't matter if you move away from the land you still have to define the Hebrew language based upon the original template that is laid out by the most high so we need to know Hebrew in order to interpret Scripture because our environment is in complete opposition to the original Hebraic way of understanding things and so in order to look at Scripture and begin to understand it from in the way that the that the Father intended we have to go back to redefining these words based upon their original intent and how they relate to the family and to the land now we're going to deal with ancient Hebrew thought AB Shaq vs. concrete it's very interesting that when we view the Scriptures we are normally in English viewing them through an app check lens because the Greeks in their abstract thought have interpreted these scriptures based upon their culture and their context and in doing so we talked about this in a previous video with translation they have inserted their bias and their culture thus watering down or even at times removing that of the Hebrews one of the places we can see this both in we're going to look at it first in the Hebrew in the concrete and then the Greek in the abstract so in Psalms 1:3 it says he is like a tree planted by streams of water which yields fruit in its season and whose leaf does not wither immediately when you hear that you can visualize that or go down to a stream and see a tree close to the water with the roots and see how green and how it flourishes and this is a textbook picture of how the Hebrews were spoke things and viewed them in a way that other people could also go and observe them the reason why there's so much confusion with the Bible and how people can't relate to the words or to the people of the Bible is because you can't go out read it and then go view them because the markers have been changed they have been changed with his people so you read about these people who look a certain way and then you go to look at a Hebrew and then you don't see a Hebrew that actually matches the Bible because through the transition from Hebrew concrete or I could read something or somebody tell me something that go observe it there has been a change to the Greek where I can read something somebody can tell me something but when I go observe it it doesn't look the same it's the same with the people and it's also the same with how English Bible has been interpreted things now let's look at how the English Bible or how people who speak English or Greek can interpret something and it can be completely different or almost non understandable now let's look at Psalm 103 yahoo is compassionate and gracious slow to anger abounding in love compassion gracious anger and love are all abstract thoughts everyone is looking at these particular terms would walk away with a different definition for what they mean while in Hebrew each one of these terms has their own definition and it gives a concrete understanding and explanation for how they should be carried out and how when you see these things they should relate back to the original definition this is why it is so important that we transform as we're going through this study from a Western mind of just defining things how they feel to us and looking at them through the Hebrew which doesn't really deal with our feelings about what these words mean if we don't like what a word means in Hebrew we don't get to change it and make it fit what we mean one of the errors of the Christian Church is always trying to make something personal how does this feel to you how does apply to you where there's some things in the Hebrew language that don't necessarily apply to you there are some things that are completely masculine and that deal with a man it might be something that may be an active sexual expression that you can't necessarily feel because it only works from a man to a woman and that's why in Hebrew we'll learn that things are gender specific there's no gender fluid in Hebrew on how you want to be sometimes male and sometimes female it doesn't work like that in the Hebrew language with the Hebrew language something is either masculine or feminine and so that actually segues into a really important thing when we deal with the Creator we get the eye we get a masculine a masculine and output of who he is this is because Hebrew does not deal with the whole gender fluid so if something is both masculine and feminine then it's going to be masculine so if there is a group of children in a room and there are both Matt males and females we're going to relate to them all the same exact way in the mask on Form we'll learn that a little bit more later but I want to tell you that because I didn't want there to be questions of whether or not it is true that yah has a nature that's both feminine and masculine but yah is not both male and female those two things are different and we'll find that out by sitting the Hebrew language which is not something that we can see in the Greek language okay so let's deal with some of these words in here that oil let's just pick one and then we'll move along that the word for anger and that Psalm 103 past passage deals with something that we would define an English language of somebody who's mad or upset or something of that sort but in the Hebrew you're going to get an actual working picture the word in Hebrew for anger is enough and it actually deals with the nostrils being flared and we can see this in a couple of ways in the Hebrew culture but one of the most common ways is for an animal such as a camel to be carrying a heavy load and as animal carries a heavy note a load it becomes distressed by not being able to complete its task because it's too heavy and the nostrils flare and it begins to blow out air well you can actually compare this picture to the most high then what about man makes ya angry or mad yah is not a you of temper tantrums when we see anger it's flippin and it's often off-the-wall and it's directed but it's indirect and it makes you act out in ways that are irrational well that's not angry with you the anger with yot is when we disobey we put in a burden on yah to chastise us or to deal with us which stops – for progression of our journey whether it be spiritual or physical which then creates a frustration of having to now add a particular load to this journey that wasn't necessarily supposed to be there now when you see it that way you can look throughout scripture and see why the children of Israel on their journey angered the Most High he had them on Jurnee but on that journey they begin to sin and bring in idolatry with which added a burden which made the journey much longer which then created an unnecessary amount of work and chastisement for the Most High where all he wanted to do was bless them so you have this picture of a camel who just wants to please and wants to do for its master what it should do now while we are not Yas master and while he is not necessarily seeking to please us he does seek to bless us but by being disobedient we add an unnecessary burden and work for him to have to fix which delays the blessing process which can be frustrating as parents I'm a mother I have two children there is nothing more frustrating than trying to put together lunch and food and create a perfect day where we're going to go out and play in the park and do all these things and then to have one child knock over their juice all over the clothes and then to have another child on the way out go play in the mud that's delaying the trip and causing frustration because as a really good friend of mine says you've create you've done rule number 14 you created unnecessary work for others so by our disobedience we've made enough and created unnecessary work for him went throughout the journey all he wants to do is bless us so I want to leave you with that little tidbit as we move into just how important and how necessary it is to know the language so that we can better relate not only to each other not only to our environment but to our Heavenly Father so throughout this series we're going to be looking at those kind of things and we're also going to be working through this olive bed for homework if you want to call it that I'm going to actually take that Hebrew alphabet chart that I showed you on here in the Paleo and I'm going to place it with this particular olive pit chart in the modern script and you can go through and practice writing each of these I'm going to we put a grid into this file where you can write them out in the grid so you can feel how it feels to actually write when you're writing the Palio you'll be writing in a form closer to what our ancestors would have written in and when you write in the modern you'll be writing in a script or font that is what you'll be looking at when you actually read the scriptures and so both of these are important because some of the things that you're going to be reading are going to have this modern block print script but the stuff that we're going to use for defining words and looking at pictures will use this paleo script so I want you to know both and I want you to be familiar with both of them I like that and the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet is an olive of all things and so the olive in its original picture graphical form actually looks like an ox head so the olive is an ox head and here we have the modern script in the early script the Hebrew definition of olive and obviously if something is closely related it can also fit into this definition but for now we're going to look at these concrete type of definitions so those with strength and office is strong those with power they're powerful this is the it deals with a leader because when oxen oxen are yoked together the more experienced ox or the older oxen more powerful ox is linked with the younger one in order to show that ox how to tread the particular path and the Ox also deals I mean the aleph also deals with the source and the source is yahuwah and the reason why Yahoo is Aleph is well we'll find out later on throughout our study so the pictographic ulm eating as you can see it's an ox head the sound is silent so the olive doesn't make any sound of itself unless it's used in a vowel form and I know a lot of people are unfamiliar with vowels and some people believe they don't exist at all the reality is that vows do exist there is no such thing as language without vowels in the Hebrew language though the vows are the consonants so the same thing we're going to use as the consonants will also be the vowels and we're going to see later on how the Masoretic text what they did was take out the consonants that served as vowels and put dots in their place so that people over time would be able to pronounce it close to the sound of the vowel now I don't I won't say that something I necessarily agree with and I won't say that it's something that's necessarily accurate but in order to not go into a long contentious argument about Masoretic text I will say that I will show you how by removing a vowel from the actual text and putting the points a purse get a more consistent understanding of how word may have sounded okay so the olive is a silent letter or a vowel and it's numerical value as one so what we see here are three different things we see how the word would have been written or the script of it we see the picture or how that would have looked in a paleo or at picked a graphical form and we see that every Hebrew letter also is a number so Aleph is one very interesting the olive is one and that's it with a leader the strong the first so we automatically see that the source or the one is the olive so that's what we have for today so we're going to end here for today I think we have enough in order to move forward I'm going to post the portion of review that'll be necessary in order to move into next week what I expect by next week is that you're at least familiar with the Hebrew alphabet so if I show you the modern script you know what the modern scripture is if I show you the paleo Hebrew script you should know what the paleo Hebrew script is that gives you a week to just kind of look over them to become familiar there's a couple of songs out there if you want to actually learn the Hebrew all of that from beginning to end I'll also post links to those and I expect that everyone should have actually written down at least the paleo form and the modern Hebrew form onto your Hebrew grid this will help as we move forward and build upon these there won't be a long introduction like this video on the next one because we'll be dealing directly with each Hebrew letter what its meaning is we won't have to explain obviously modern script and paleo and why we're using it but I believe that's necessary when you're initially moving forward with something so that as people ask questions they are in the context of how I presented the information so I hope that this was helpful it's our first round so I pray that it gets better as we go on and I hope it bless you Shalom Shalom next week we're going to deal with the Hebrew letter bet we're going to take the allah that we learned today and the letter bet and put them together and see how we get the very first picture of a family a father and a strong leader Shalom Shalom Roy UT boy youichi how was it a chosen people

  5. Hey sis glad I've stumbled on your page. Can't believe I'm really reading and learning Hebrew already. Still got lots to learn

  6. so funny how people now in these days are worrying or should i say caring more about others being fake and real israelites. Remember what the messiah from 2,000 yrs ago said in Galatians 3:28 "there is no Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you *are all one in Christ Jesus". I'm 16 years old who just surrendered to jesus a year ago, and yet people who are way older than me, and have maybe been knowing who god really is still with their craziness and hatefulness towards other people of different colors, and ethnicity and language? please… also he also taught us that We should love one another. and neighbors…
