The Importance of Hebrew

  1. Gary D. Pratico & Miles V. Van Pelt
    "The study of Hebrew is not only an academic exercise, but also an act of obedience in the fulfillment of a calling to the ministry.... We have been entrusted with the preaching and teaching of God's Word, ... and thus the study of biblical languages should constitute a fundamental and significant part of our training."
    Gary D. Pratico & Miles V. Van Pelt
  2. Peter J. Williams
    Biblical Hebrew "has never truly 'died' ... it is still actively spoken and used in Jewish religious life and synagogues around the world. It is taught and passed down in both Christian seminaries and Jewish yeshivas. And because of its use by God ... it will continue to enjoy a detailed preservation and rich textual tradition virtually unparalleled by any other ancient language."
    Peter J. Williams
  3. Martin Luther
    "When it comes to interpreting Scripture... working with it..., and disputing with those who cite it incorrectly, [a simple preacher] is unequal to the task; that cannot be done without languages.... There must always be such prophets who can dig into Scripture, expound it, and carry on its disputations."
    Martin Luther
  4. Ulrich Zwingli
    "Those who are ignorant of Hebrew forms of speech have great difficulty in attempting to draw out the true sense of Scripture.... If [one] would penetrate to the heavenly wisdom, ... it is with such arms that [they] must be equipped. And even then [they] must still approach with a humble and thirsting spirit."
    Ulrich Zwingli

 * This reading plan reflects the Hebrew numbering system
Note: Normally, For the Torah portions we are currently using the older liturgical divisions which were used in Y'hudah and the Galil through the 1st century A.D., until  replaced with the newer system developed in Babylon (with its yearly cycle and 54 parashoth). This older system has 167 divisions, each of which is called a seder. They are clearly marked in the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS), as reflected in the work of the Masoretes.
