Unlocking the Scriptures
Reading the Scripture through Hebrew
You don’t want to miss this book of essays: it will help you to see the Scriptures in a very different light! Even if you have been a student of the Bible for a long time; even if you know your Bible very well, you will be surprised to find that many familiar Bible stories seem almost unrecognizable when read in Hebrew (or at least, with some Hebrew). Through a deeper understanding of the original Hebrew text, you will discover new and fascinating insights – and these hidden treasures of the Hebrew Scriptures will help you more fully understand God’s original plan for humanity – and for your life.
Julia is a teacher and a writer. She teaches two biblical courses at the Israel Institute of Biblical Studies, “Discovering the Hebrew Bible” and “Jewish Background of the New Testament”, and writes Hebrew insights for these courses. Julia lives with her family in a small town, Mevasseret Zion, next to Jerusalem. The name of the town comes from the book of Isaiah (Isa 40:9) and means: “Bringing Good News to Zion”.
