This book is intended as a supplement to many existing books written about the Biblical holy days. In order to understand the Bible, it is incumbent upon each reader to comprehend the fact that the Bible was written in the Hebrew language by Hebraic people and it was not written by the Greeks, Romans or Germanic/English speaking people. The Hebrew language is clear, concise and says exactly what it means. The Greek language is abstract and ambiguous.
The Greek, Roman and Germanic/English translators wrote what they thought a word meant, not considering the fact that each Hebrew letter that makes up a word, has a name, a meaning, a number and a vibration or sound. Sometimes meanings are coded within its numerical values, letters or placement in sentence structure and context.
I have tried to provide other perspectives and meaning to verses that are specific to the Bible holy days. It is said that “history is the best rewarder of our research.” It is important to know the history, culture and language of the people that you read about. Otherwise, the Bible, when read, becomes like a novel or some other book of fantasy with imaginary characters.
My approach to writing this book was to follow a chronological arrangement by explaining the Hebraic meaning of verses from the beginning, Genesis, using language, history and culture. The chapters on “time” explain how the Bible views time versus the way we view and calculate time today. Time has been changed just like the writer Daniel prophesied. Those chapters deal with the history of the time changes as each change relate to the Bible.
I have consulted several Hebrew language scholars and have used the Hebrew language as a basis to re-interpret with more accurate meanings the words found in many verses. James Strong, L.L.D, S.T.D, Lois Rothblum, Bella Bergman, Ora Band, Ellen Frankel, Betsy Platkin Teutsch, and Jeff A. Benner are excellent writers on the Hebrew language. I have been taught the language by my “moreh” Navon Grove and we studied using some of these authors over the years. Much of my overview of the Hebrew language have come from them.
I want to express my deep gratitude to my wife, sons, family of Congregation Beit Ephraim and many friends who encouraged me to complete this book.
