Service Description

One-on-one discipleship using a Bible study exploring the Jewish roots of scripture is offered to believers in Jesus Christ who seek to deepen their understanding of the Middle Eastern culture and Jewishness of God's word. The study of the Jewish roots of scripture, often referred to as Jewish or Hebraic studies, is an academic and theological discipline that explores the origins, contexts, and interpretations of biblical texts from a Jewish perspective. This field of study emphasizes understanding the Bible within its original Jewish context, recognizing the historical, cultural, linguistic, and religious background of the Jewish people. Key aspects of this study include: - Historical Context: - Cultural Practices: Understanding the customs, traditions, and daily life of the Jewish people during biblical times, which can provide insight into the meaning and significance of various scriptures. - Linguistic Analysis: This includes examining idioms, wordplay, and linguistic nuances that may be lost in translation. - Jewish Interpretive Traditions: Exploring how Jewish scholars, rabbis, and communities have interpreted and understood the scriptures throughout history - Religious Practices and Beliefs: Examining the religious beliefs, rituals, and practices of ancient Judaism and how these are reflected in and influenced by the scriptures. - Comparative Studies: Comparing biblical texts with other ancient Near Eastern literature and religious texts to identify similarities, differences, and unique features of the Jewish scriptures. - Second Temple Judaism: Focusing on the period between the return from Babylonian exile and the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE, which is a crucial era for understanding the development of Jewish thought and the context of the New Testament. - Messianic Prophecies and Expectations: Investigating Jewish messianic expectations and how these are articulated in the Hebrew Bible, as well as how they have been interpreted within Jewish and Christian traditions. - Theological Implications: Reflecting on the theological implications of the Jewish roots of scripture for contemporary religious beliefs and practices, particularly within Judaism and Christianity. Studying the Jewish roots of scripture provides a deeper and richer understanding of the biblical texts by situating them within their original context. This approach can enhance one's appreciation of the scriptures' complexity, depth, and historical significance.
