 Hebrews   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The Hebrews lived within this region in the 2nd millennium BCE and spoke a Canaanite dialect (see Hebrew languages), although their culture was distinct from the local canaanite culture.
Other controversial theories hold that the Hebrews were the mysterious Hyksos, a semitic people, who gradually took migrated into Egypt, eventually taking power from the extremely weak pharoah by force, and subsequently being expelled after many years, matching up well with the biblical description of the Hebrews in Egypt.
Hebrews are also referred to as the Children of Israel for this reason.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Hebrew Names
So intimate was the relation conceived to be between the individual and his name, that the latter came frequently to be used as an equivalent of the former: "to be called" meant "to be", the name being taken to be equal to the object, nay, identical with it.
Hebrew was not the primitive language of the descendants of Abraham, they having adopted it from the natives of the land of Chanaan; naturally along with the language they adopted certain of their modes of speech.
Finally a certain number of distinctly Hebrew names, which either superseded older ones, or were given to localities before unnamed, have a special interest because they took their origin from events enshrined in the memory of the Hebrews.

 Hebrew History: The Monarchy, ~1050-926
As recounted in the I Samuel and II Samuel, the Hebrews approached Samuel, the "judge" of Israel, and demanded a king.
In the Hebrew view of history, it represents the Hebrew refusal to be ruled by god in favor of a human ruler.
This conflict would form the basis of a massive change in the nature of Hebrew religion, the "prophetic revolution," which is played out against the backdrop of the incongruence between rule by Yahweh and rule by a king.

Bialik, Inauguration of the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, 1925.
After the Jewish people was expelled from the land destined for it, it continued to exist for almost two thousand years thanks to its faith in its resettlement, in the existence of its destiny, in the realization of its ideal.
The people did not forego its inheritance; it not only continued to hope for the ingathering of the exiles in its land and the renewal of its role and its complete rehabilitation within it but it did not cease to act in accordance with the times and the circumstances towards the realization of these hopes.

 The Sacred Name
The Hebrew language was used by the Hebrew people for hundreds of years, but then came a time when, as a result of the conquest o Alexander the Great, Greek became the universally spoken language of the world.
If you were talking to the common people in the time of the apostles and spoke Hebrew, a large part of the audience would not understand you.
Some of the people who came to listen to Him were Romans and they could not understand Semitic languages, so it is very possible that much of Jesus' instruction was given in Greek, although we know that many of His private conversations with Semitic peoples were in Aramaic.

 AHRC - Ancient Hebrews in America
If it is original, this proves that a Semitic people, probably Hebrews, arrived in the Americas long before Columbus or the Vikings.
It was not until this last century that the ancient Hebrew (paleo-Hebrew) script was discovered in the Near East.
Since the Los Lunas inscription uses the same script, it is safe to conclude that the Los Lunas inscription was written by a Hebrew people about 3,000 years ago.

 The Message of the Hebrew Wisdom Literature
This is the ray of hope that emanates from the Hebrew people which outshines all of the other cultures of the day, and which enabled them to trust in God and wait for His salvation.
Because the Hebrew mind would never allow the idea that God was somehow mistaken (He was no longer good), or that he had lost his power (He was no longer great), they were rushed by simple human logic to this conclusion: Job had sinned and was now reaping the just punishment for his wicked ways.
Because the Hebrew people did not put much thought into an afterlife at this time in their history, this answer was as good as the revelation of God's grace could give them for the moment.

 HEBREW LANGUAGE
Hebrew is the tribal language of the Jewish people.
The original Hebrew of 1350 B.C.E. was written in proto-Sinaitic script; a script created by the Hebrew scribes shortly after the Hebrew people left Egyptian exile with Moses.
This does not mean that the Hebrews did not have words for these missing expressions or items, but that, for one reason or another, they did not find their way into the Bible.

 Lord's Prayer in Aramaic   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Aramaic was the language of Semitic culture, the language of the Hebrew patriarchs and, in the older days, the lingua franca of the Fertile Crescent.
The term "Hebrew" is derived from the Aramaic word Abar or Habar which means " to cross over." This name was given to the Hebrew people simply because Abraham and the people who were with him crossed the river Euphrates and went to Palestine.
Therefore, they were known by those who lived east of the river Euphrates as Hebrew, that is, "the people across the river." All branches of the great Semitic people had a common speech.

 Welcome To Axis Mundi: A Student Journal For The Academic Study Of Religion
Judith the pious widow was able to play the part of the seductress and takes, for her God and people, the head of the General Holofernes (Judith 13:8).[4] Ironically, Holofernes is also the head of the Assyrian army and "hand-picked" by the King Nebuchadnezzar (Judith 2:4-6) to campaign against the Hebrew people.
This is interesting because Judith is noted as being wise and asked to intercede for the people liking her to a Wisdom incarnate figure.[32] It seems as thought the author of Judith wants to present to the reader an interesting theological idea.
Thus, in order for the Hebrew people to remain faithful to their God and in order to remain a distinct entity, there seems to have been a shift to the Law being more important than the cultic activity of the Temple.

 What is a Hebrew Israelite?
Israel is a nation of people where those who practice Judaism are members of a religion and not a nationality as such.
Jews, on the other hand, are people of various nationalities who have abandoned their own cultures and adopted the religion of Judiasm.
It was the gradual degradation and cross-culturalization of both Israelite practice and the Hebrew language by the Edomites that led to the coining and eventual use of the term Jew.

 TUNING HEBREW PSALMS TO REGGAE RHYTHMS: RASTAS' REVOLUTIONARY LAMENTATIONS FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
That Hebrew Psalms have found a permanent home in the musical rhythms of Rastafari (the movement) is a tribute to the powerful reggae cultural revolution of the last decades, but it also shows how profoundly the Bible resonates with the political ideology of the Jamaican Rastafari.
Psalm 137 echoes the melancholy of a people dislocated from their familiar surroundings and taken forcibly into Babylonian exile; the psalm has a basic motif in which "the single subject of the lament is the enemy,"(20) the Babylonians.
God's people could not sing but they could remember."(28) Essentially, "in the case of Psalm 137, grief and anger sustain the remembrance that makes faith, hope, and life possible 'in a foreign land.' In the face of monstrous evil, the worst possible response is to feel nothing.

Americans need no divine proclamation to “misinterpret”, for their lifestyles, their very souls are immersed in an ideology that willfully supports the betterment of the world; whereas the ancient Hebrew people took for granted their divine privilege as a consolation for their destitution and sorrow.
Indeed, Americans view themselves as a “chosen people of sorts;” but this derives not from divine intervention, not from insuperable favoritism, but a common will of the people — to succeed, to prosper, and to spread this aura of opportunity with the rest of the world.
Dr. X viewed these two seemingly similar peoples from the wrong perspective, assuming that since both groups are deemed “chosen,” then all other aspects should too be similar.

 Hebrew Language = Hebrew People - Stormfront White Nationalist Community   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In his first-century Antiquities of the Jews, Flavius Josephus adds an extra dimension, stating, 'This man was called Adam, which in the Hebrew tongue signifies one that is red, because he was compounded out of the red earth'.
Nevertheless, in relating the word adam to 'one that is red' he called upon his further knowledge of the Akkadian language of Mesopotamia in which adamatu was a dark-red earth.
These two Semitic languages were not dissimilar, and the Hebrew word for 'red' was adom, while another word denoting something red was adum, as indicated by the Adummim (the red men) of the book of Joshua (15:7).

 The Messiah's Hebrew Name: "Yeshua" Or "Yahshua"?
Daniel Botkin explains the Hebrew linguistics of the names "Yeshua" and "Yahshua" and how "Yahshua" is a mistransliteration by Sacred Name advocates to fit an erroneous interpretation of John 5:43 and how "Yeshua" is far more accurate.
Danny Ben-Gigi says of the Yahshua form that "there is no such name in Hebrew" and that "people invented it to fit their theology."[1] Dr. Ben-Gigi is an Israeli and the former head of Hebrew programs at Arizona State University.
To people who actually know Hebrewpeople like Dr. Ben-Gigi, Dr. Bivin, and others – it is very obvious that those who insist on the Yahshua form know very little about the Hebrew language.
