The hidden meaning of God’s words
“Go forth” with Biblical Hebrew
The Divine Call is Issued

Abraham is the first of the biblical patriarchs and the first person in the Bible to have a personal relationship with God. The first time the Lord addresses Abraham he tells him, “Go forth from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you” (Genesis 12:1). This seems straightforward, but when examined in the in the original Hebrew, it becomes clear that something far more interesting is happening.


A Hebrew Pun

The two simple English words “go forth” in Hebrew are lech-lecha (לֶךְ-לְךָ). This is a clever play on words. Although these two words sound almost identical, they actually mean two things: “go” and “to yourself.” The implication is that although Abraham must undergo a traumatic departure from his native land, he is actually traveling to find his more authentic self. Once Abraham enters the land, his true relationship with the one Lord can flourish.

No I had two friends that are both now deceased that lived in Israel and had a music ministry there. They goth took up studying Hebrew and told me how difficult it was to learn. Hebrew has no vowels in it. I have enough problems with English. You are welcome to sign up though.

You might enjoy listening to Dr. Ben-Gigi. He says his program makes it easy. I've meant to order it a few times but keep forgetting and you just jogged my memory again. I think he lives and teaches in AZ.
