Verse of the Day

“For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.” — 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 Listen to chapter Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica. Powered by

Study Hebrew With the World’s Foremost Instructors

A Language Resurrected From the Ashes of History

A little less than 2000 years ago, the city of Jerusalem was burned to the ground and the Jewish people were exiled from their homeland. As a result of this cataclysm, the Jewish religion changed dramatically. Without a Temple, sacrifices ceased and were replaced with prayer. By the same token, the Hebrew language also changed dramatically. Scattered throughout the Diaspora, the Jews stopped speaking Hebrew in their daily affairs. Hebrew was reserved for sacred purposes only. It was the language of prayer in the synagogue, known as lashon qodesh (לָשׁוֹן הַקּוֹדֶשׁ), meaning the “holy tongue”.

The First Native Speakers of Modern Hebrew

Miraculously, in the late 19th century Hebrew was brought back to life by the early Zionist pioneers. Almost 150 years ago the eminent scholar Eliezer ben Yehuda dusted off the archaic language of the Bible and adjusted it for modern life. He invented hundreds of new words by expanding ancient roots. His son Ben-Zion was the first native speaker of Hebrew since the days of ancient Israel. At first, people scoffed at this crazy project. But it succeeded! This is one of the modern State of Israel’s most important contributions to Jewish identity.
