TorahappThe Hebrew language is an extremely rich language. Jesus words, full of imagery, meaning and emotion.

Sometimes when we translate Hebrew words into English, this richness is lost. The full meaning of the words are somehow lost in translation

Here at Hillside until the celebration of Easter we shall explore some of the most common Hebrew words, the context in which they were used, and apply them to the daily muck, mire, marvel and mystery of our lives.

Jesus was a Jew. He spoke Hebrew. He thought in Hebrew. He used these very words for life:

(Numbers 6:24-26):
יְבָרֶכְךָ יְהוָה, וְיִשְׁמְרֶךָ May Adonai bless you and keep you;
יָאֵר יְהוָה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וִיחֻנֶּךָּ May Adonai lift up his face upon you and be gracious unto you;
יִשָּׂא יְהוָה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וְיָשֵׂם לְךָ שָׁלוֹם May Adonai lift up his face upon you and give you peace.
