God is a heart God! Every aspect of our relationship with Him is meant to be heart to heart: our heart to His. But, as you know, very little in our modern culture nourishes a heart relationship. In fact, religion is designed to keep the believer from actually connecting to the heart of God for himself or herself!
God originally communicated in a specific language; nothing with God is coincidental! He used a language that, more than any modern language, facilitates heart to heart communication. Sadly, modern Hebrew teachers have made the language intellectual, legalistic, one-dimensional, boring, and incredibly difficult to learn; usually missing the point of its unique capacity to open our heart to God… but it doesn’t have to be that way!
I’ve always wanted to study Hebrew. I always knew there was something spiritual in the Hebrew language. But after studying Greek for most of my adult life, I also knew I didn’t want any more boring language classes!
I’m not talking about…
There is an ancient proverb that says: when the student is ready the teacher appears!
When my heart was ready to follow, the teacher I had sought, prayed, and search for appeared.
As a college-level theological teacher, I developed a methodology for Greek language studies that, was quick, efficient, accurate and gave amazing room to allow God to speak to our heart. Anyone could learn to do it with just a few language tools. It did not require that you become a language scholar, or learn to read Greek!
Sadly, I could never find that in a Hebrew teacher. The teachers I found were boring and totally missed the heart to heart aspect of the language. I didn’t have time or interest in endless memorization of information that could be found in any good lexicon. So my search for a Hebrew teacher went on for years, until…
Finally, a few years ago I found the Hebrew teacher, Chaim Bentorah, who was an answer to all those years of searching. In just a matter of hours, I was applying what I learned and discovering insight into the Hebrew language that confirmed everything God had ever showed me about His Word! It opened the teachings of Jesus and the apostles in ways I had never experienced in any language research.
Plus, the course was supported by an incredible amount of research that gave me great examples and endless resources for how to apply what I was learning. Few things have enhanced my intimate connection with God this much in years!
