Hebrew Word Study: Exploring the Mind of God reveals the thoughts and plans of our Creator-Father as revealed in the deeper meanings of Hebrew words in Scripture. Chaim Bentorah highlights many Old Testament passages that reveal the loving nature of God, as opposed to the vindictive nature that is commonly portrayed. Each devotional includes a specific passage of Scripture, followed by an investigation of key words in the original Hebrew, all pointing to the eternal purposes of our loving heavenly Father. Use as an inspiring daily devotional that will draw you closer to the Lord, a deeper word study into biblical Hebrew—or both! You don't even have to be familiar with a word of Hebrew to be greatly blessed by these insights. Chaim opens up the biblical passages while ultimately pointing us to enter more fully into a loving relationship with our Lord.
