About Hebrew Bibles

With the Talmud and the Mishnah at his side, the elderly Rabbi pours over Hebrew scrolls in an attempt to illuminate the true meaning of the text. In today's 21st century, you do not need to be a Rabbi nor do you need to have scrolls to study the Hebrew Bible. You can find the Bible written in Hebrew, using both the Babylonian and Masoretic texts. The Hebrew Bible, known as the Tanakh, is composed of the Torah (teachings), Nevi'im (prophets), and Ketuvim (writings). Together, these three sections make up the 39 books of the standard modern-day English Old Testament. If you do not know Hebrew, you can find a Hebrew-English Bible that has both languages to aid in translation. If you want both Old and New Testaments, you can choose a Hebrew-Greek Bible that has the original languages of the entire Bible. You can find all of these options available on eBay from many reliable sellers. If you want to study these ancient books, pick up a copy of the Hebrew Bible and begin your studies.
