Translating through Ruth 4

I’m translating through Ruth 4.

I found there’s a Daily Dose of Hebrew that goes through Ruth 4!  Thought I share this and also have it bookmarked for myself as I’ll be finishing up Ruth 4 sometime this month, Lord willing.

Aren’t you amazed at such amazing resources we now have online with studying the Bible? What resources do you use?

Here’s the videos:

Purchase: Amazon

Are you looking for a book on military history and military techniques during ancient times?  This book might be for you!  Written by a team of experts on military matters with academic and published credentials this book is quite informative and engaging concerning military matters of equipping, tactics and combat skills for warfare.  The work covers largely Europe and the Middle East before the advent of gunpowder.  While the subtitle of the book states it looks at 3000 BC-500 AD most of the book concentrates on the Greek and Roman classical period.

Dr. Vern Poythress is one of those incredible intellectual gift to the Church.  He’s a Christian professor, a Reformed theologian, New Testament scholar, expert on hermeneutics, linguist, a Presuppositional apologist and philosopher who was a prodigy that went to Cal Tech before he was 18 and have several doctorates including a PhD in Mathematics from Harvard University.

He’s recently was interviewed for a podcast on the Missions Podcast from ABWE International.  It’s a wonderful discussion on multiple things I’m excited about:  Missions, Language Presuppositional Apologetics and Theology!

God’s World and Word Part 1

Psalm 19

 

Purpose: In this Psalm we shall see two truths in response to God revealing Himself in both His World and His Word.

  • Appreciate God’s revelation in the world (v.1-6)
  • Appreciate God’s revelation in the Word (v.7-9)

 

Introductory matters

  • Hebrew verse 1 of Psalm 19 indicates that this is written by David: “For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
  • According to William Barrick Psalm 19 clearly divides into two halves:[1]
    • The name of God changes: El (once) in verses 1-6, Yahweh (Jehovah; 7 times) in verses 7-14.
    • The content changes: the World Book in verses 1-6, the Word Book in verses 7-13.
    • The length of lines changes: longer lines in verses 1-6, shorter lines in verses 7- 14.
    • The application or illustration changes: the sun in verses 4-6, the servant in verses 11-14.
  • Also Psalm 18 and Psalm 19 connects with related terms and phrases:[2]
    • Compare 18:30 (“The word of the LORD is tried”) with 19:7-9.
    • Blameless”/“Perfect” (18:23, 25, 30; 19:7, 13).
    • Rock” and “Deliverer”/“Redeemer” (18:1-2; 19:14).
  • Next week we will look at application from God’s revelation in the world and Word (v.10-14)

H.H. Hardy II. Exegetical Gems from Biblical Hebrew. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Academic, July 16th 2019. 224 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

The publisher have said of this book that it is “perfect for students looking to apply their Hebrew and for past students who wish to review the essentials of Hebrew grammar.”   But before you dismiss that this book is something you can overlook because you don’t know Biblical Hebrew consider the possibility that this makes a great gift (Birthday, graduation, Christmas, etc) for someone you know in seminary, ministry and those who teach God’s Word and want to learn Hebrew or do use Hebrew regularly for teaching and preaching!
