Yeshua, the Jewish Jesus, Vocabulary
Bible Study Vocabulary
Every person brings three things with them to our Bible studies – beliefs about the Bible, an English vocabulary, and life experiences. These things affect how people understand the words they read.
Bringing an English vocabulary to a Bible study in which English translations are being studied means people attach "meanings they brought with them" for the English words in the Bible. No Bible was originally written in English. The books were originally written in Hebrew or Greek. Finding English words that are the most “culturally accurate” is our top priority.
