About Hebrew

A translation of the Bible is a translator’s “interpretation” of the text. The translator’s doctrines and beliefs will often influence how the text will be translated and anyone using his translation is seeing it through his eyes rather than through the eyes of the original authors. Only by studying the original language of the Bible can one see the text in its original state.
