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:

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!

Nelson Glueck. Hesed in the Bible.  Eugene, OR: Wipf & Stock Publishers, May 20th 2011.  118 pp.

The Hebrew word Hesed is one that many Christians find fascinating.  It is often translated in English as “covenantal faithfulness” or “loving-kindness.”  This book is written by Nelson Glueck an early twentieth scholar of Reformed Judaism who wrote the first scholarly study of the word Hesed.  Its signifance can be seen with how other studies after Glueck would often cite and interact with Glueck’s view whether they are for or against his particular conclusions.  So it is wonderful to find that an English translation of this classic was done in the 1960s and have been reprinted by Wipf and Stock Publishers.

This post is probably more technical than some of the other responses we wrote answering alleged Bible contradiction but I think it is helpful in demonstrating how a working knowledge of the original language of Scripture is helpful and important.

Today’s post will tackle the question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible pose: “How did David kill Goliath?”

Here’s the two answer they pointed out in which their point is that there is a contradiction:

With a sling only.

(“There was no sword in the had of David.”)

And David put his hand into his bag and took from it a stone and slung it, and struck the Philistine on his forehead. And the stone sank into his forehead, so that he fell on his face to the ground. 50 Thus David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and he struck the Philistine and killed him; but there was no sword in David’s hand. (1 Samuel 17:49-50)

He cut off his head with a sword.

Then David ran and stood over the Philistine and took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him, and cut off his head with it. When the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled. (1 Samuel 17:51)

(Note: Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible.  What is in bold is the emphasis by the skeptic webpage.)

Also the website also asked “Or did he kill him twice?”

Let’s take a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:
