As an instructor in both ancient Hebrew and Aramaic, Chaim Bentorah is convinced that there are powerful truths buried in the original language of God's Word that most Christians have never been exposed to. The Word of God is like the heart of God: it is a well that never runs dry. In this book, you will discover things about God and your relationship with Him that you may never have considered. By delving into the multiple layers and nuances of the ancient Hebrew language, you will discover that God is revealing His heart to you through the depths of His Word in new and exciting ways. Hebrew is a language of poetry and pictures. With Bentorah's expertise, you will see how to examine not just word definitions, but also the origin of the words, their place in the culture and idioms of the day, and even their emotional context. Through this devotional, you will walk the road less traveled as you uncover the deeper spiritual messages in God's Word. In the process, you will discover the heart of God toward you and come to know Him better. You will see just how beautiful the Word of God is and, most of all, you will see the beauty of God Himself and love Him all the more.
Chaim Bentorah has a B.A. in Jewish Studies from Moody Bible Institute, an M.A. in Old Testament and Hebrew from Denver Seminary, and a PhD in Biblical Archaeology. He studied advanced Hebrew under Dr. Earl S. Kalland, who was on the executive committee for the translation work of the New International Version of the Bible. Bentorah taught classical Hebrew and Old Testament for thirteen years at World Harvest Bible College, a division of LeSea, Inc. He presently teaches Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek to lay Christian leaders and pastors in the Metro Chicago area and writes daily word studies on his blog at www.chaimbentorah.com. He speaks to church and parachurch groups about the nature and means of studying the Old Testament in the original Hebrew. He is convinced that any Christian, regardless of age, educational background, or ability, can study the Word of God in the original languages using the resources that are available today online and through electronic media, and he conducts classes in how to use these resources to their full advantage.

McCaldwellNew MexicoAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This is an amazing book!April 11, 2017McCaldwellNew MexicoAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I've always loved looking up the original language when studying the bible. it's also why I enjoy the Amplified Bible, but this book is going to blow the doors of your understanding of scripture. Having the blessing of being Jewish and studied the language, Chaim Bentorah has taken it to another level, and then another and another! Yes, it is really quite impacting. You need to just buy the book, it will feed you, surprise you, open your understanding and it will also make you want to learn Hebrew and continue searching scripture on your own. It created a kind of 'jealousy' because the need to understand is in me, and the desire to really know truth, yet I felt so far from realizing this place -- being brought up with the understanding and the language must be a most amazing privilege. I have so much learning yet to do, and so much hunger to really get to the truth of the original language. It opens your eyes in ways you have never had them opened before, and if you ever get the chance to research the Aaronic blessing, it is a picture that will put you on your face, and make you dance with joy over how much God loves you! This is a true treasure! it will impact the way you study and look at scripture once you have savored the truths in these pages! Enjoy! Delight in the process!
2boyzmommyMoorestown, NJAge: 35-44Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Strengthen Your Relationship With GodNovember 17, 20162boyzmommyMoorestown, NJAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Hebrew Word Study - Revealing the Heart of God is a well-written devotional book. There are 90 word studies that will "encourage and strengthen you in your relationship with God. As you search the depths of God's Word, you will see just how beautiful the Scriptures are, and most of all, you will see the beauty of God Himself and come to love Him all the more." This book would make a fine gift for anyone desiring a better understanding of God's heart.
It has greatly helped me to gain a deeper, richer, more meaningful understanding of God's heart and just how much He loves me. Since it is very difficult to accurately translate a word from the Hebrew into English, the author's detailed explanation of several key words from the Hebrew language enables the reader to gain a better perspective on the intended meaning of the word, especially when it is given in the context of Scripture.
I highly recommend this book and give it 5 stars. I received a copy from Whitaker House and The Book Club Network, Inc. in exchange for my honest review.
DonnaGeorgiaAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Devotional and study bookOctober 6, 2016DonnaGeorgiaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was a very interesting, informative book with great resources and reference's written by Chaim Bentorah. There are are 90 devotionals. A book that will give you a closer relationship with God and His word. I admit that I am still reading this study book in order to take it all in. But with what I have read so far I am able to make this review without waiting another month or so. I love that there is a Bible verse at the beginning of each study followed by the lesson.
This is the first book I have read by this author. He has a great way of writing that makes it easy for you to understand the book.
I am glad to have had the opportunity to read the Hebrew Word Study and highly recommend this book.

Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Not what I expected but really goodSeptember 23, 2016Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I got this book, I wasn't quite sure exactly what to expect, but I was in for a pleasant surprise. I assumed it to be a type of concordance with the Hebrew word, what it meant, where to find it, and how it was used in the context.
Instead, I received a devotional in which the Hebrew word is expounded upon and used to encourage heart.
There are 90 devotionals that could easily be used daily. Each one is based on a Hebrew word - translated as we would use it in English with Scriptures accompanying it and defas it would have been used in Hebrew. it contains a Hebrew/English index and vise versa at the very end.
I thoroughly enjoyed the insight on how the Hebrew letters are written and what they symbolized, as well as, how those letters played into the "meaning" of the word. For me, this book is a keeper and going on my shelf for future reference and study. I believe you will also find it an asset to your library or your church's library.
I received this book from bookfun.org and Whitaker House in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not required to review this positively.
Deana5 Stars Out Of 5Great Study on WordsAugust 12, 2016DeanaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am excited that I was able to receive this book. It is just what I have been looking for. I often wonder what certain words mean in Hebrew . This book is a great devotional book that will take you through 90 different words or phrases of intense study . I loved all the different words and their meanings. They were easy to understand and made me want to dig further. I love eagles and I especially like Isaiah 40:31, " But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength ; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. " I loved how the author broke down the scripture and made it easier to understand the full meaning. When the scripture mentioned " mounting up as..." "We bind ourselves to God, we will not only "renew" our strength" but we will also "mount up with wings as eagles."
The chapter goes on to explain more about the eagle that was fascinating to me. I am honored to have this book and will use it frequently as I do bible studies to help me get a clearer picture of what scriptures or words are saying. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to do an in depth study on the meaning of words. It is a wonderful addition to have as you spend time in the Word.
I received a copy of this book from Thr BookClub Network for an honest review.
