Bible Term: Hebrew

Hebrew is the language of the Jewish people. The Old Testament was written in Hebrew.

Because the Jews spoke Hebrew, the Bible sometimes calls them Hebrew or the Hebrews.

Also, Hebrews is a book of the New Testament, so named because it was written for the Hebrew people.

A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 700-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and numerous books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
