Why Learn Hebrew?
There are several good reasons to learn a little Hebrew:
For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the name of the Lord, to serve Him with one accord. Zephaniah 3:9
Do you suppose that the "pure language" might be Hebrew?
There are many tools on-line to help you learn the alphabet and how to count. Here are just a few:
Some time ago, we conducted a beginning level Hebrew class entitled, "Families Learning Hebrew Together."
There were handouts that accompanied each week's lesson.
For those of you who were unable to receive copies of these handouts, they are available here for you to print out.
These handouts are useful if you are teaching beginning Hebrew to your family or friends or if you are learning it yourself.
We also recorded them on YouTube .

Recently, Mark Webb, our congregation leader, was invited to give a presentation on the ancient Hebrew celebration of the New Moon. His presentation was video taped and is available through YouTube . You can view Mark's presentation in five parts by clicking on the links to the right →.
Mark Webb has also developed an Internet presentation entitled, "Blood Red Moons." It is a fascinating look at when in history we've had these curious occurrences.

Tanakh is the Old Testament
Luke 24:13-34 tells the story of two disciples who were walking on the road to Emmaus, talking with each other about the recent death of Yeshua. They were joined on their journey by the resurrected Messiah.
Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.
Listed below are some of the Scriptures in the Tanakh (Old Testament) that Yeshua probably used when speaking with these two men on the road to Emmaus.
There are many on-line tools available to you as you pursue your own personal Bible study.
You should be somewhat cautious, however, as many websites may contain false or misleading information.
