5 reasons to learn Hebrew
It allows you to have firsthand access to the early Jewish literature
The Israelite teachers and sages have preserved some of the critical information about the religious, historical, linguistic and cultural context in which Rav Shaul and Yeshua is taught in Hebrew. Although they fill some of the important gaps in our understanding and complement the scriptures, much of this literature is not still available in English. Learning Hebrew can, therefore, allow you to enjoy this writing first hand.
Helps you to have a deeper understanding of Christians identity and spiritual roots
Sharing a mutual language assists in reinforcing a sense of relationship. When you learn Hebrew, you will be able to study Israel's early literature. As a result, you will be able to have an enriched and deeper appreciation of the Jewish spiritual roots. This can help the church become stronger and stand up against the rising tide of atheism and anti-Semitism as well as the dangers facing the Jewish people.
It is one of the oldest languages in the world
What’s more interesting than learning one of the oldest languages in the entire world? Learning Hebrew will allow you to access poetic, philosophical and historical texts which were written thousands of years ago in their original form.
It is the common language of Israel
If you plan to visit Israel, then you should be able to speak the common language of the natives. Speaking a little Hebrew can be very helpful, and people will be more receptive and warmer to you if you try communicating in their own language.
Moving or working in Israel
If you plan to move to Israel, either to work or live there, then the time of learning Hebrew is now. The more you have a better understanding of the language, the more you will have an easier time living there.
