Dr. Steven Notley on Hebrew in the Gospels

Dr. Steven Notley presents “Evidence for the New Testament Hebrew that Jesus Spoke”. The video is one hour of lecture with 15 minutes of QA afterwards.

Key points:

  • Hebrew was far from a dead language at the time of Jesus
  • The New Testament is a window into the idioms and peculiarities of 1st century Hebrew
  • Many sayings in the Gospels carry a specific Hebrew meaning obscured in the Greek manuscripts
  • The Parable as a teaching methodology is uniquely Hebrew
  • The use of Hebrew indicates cultural, as well as linguistic, practices in the ministry of Jesus
  • Many portions of the Gospels previously considered odd or mistaken can be explained by idiomatic use of Hebrew
