A classic resource for beginning Hebrew students First published over thirty years ago under the title A Student's Vocabulary of Biblical Hebrew, this classic work has been completely revised, updated, and expanded by the author to assist a new generation of students in naturally developing a basic Biblical Hebrew vocabulary. Designed to help beginning Hebrew readers acquire vocabulary quickly, this valuable teaching tool focuses on words that occur most frequently in the Hebrew Bible, while arranging them by roots and cognates allowing students to naturally expand their working vocabulary. Vocabulary lists have been kept to a manageable size; extensive cross-references document when words appear frequently with different meanings, and an index allows rapid location of every word encountered. As a result, students who master this volume will remember words more easily, consult a lexicon less frequently but more intelligently, and translate the Hebrew Bible at sight more readily and enjoyably. Features Vocabulary groupings based on frequency, roots, and cognates Separate listing for nouns without verbal roots in the Hebrew Bible Appendices including proper names and the forms and meanings of pronominal suffixes

Many pastors find it easier to preach on the New Testament than the Old Testament, with its powerful and often shocking narrative, prophetic warnings and calls to holiness. For many preachers seeking to make the Bible relevant, it's far easier--and safer--to stay out of the woods and plow the well-worn fields of the newer canon. Preaching the Old Testament equips pastors to journey into the forest and find a passion and confidence for preaching on the Old Testament. This book helps them keep up on their Hebrew, understand the themes of the Old Testament, and unpack Jesus' foundational text to take their congregations to a deeper understanding of Christ himself.

Warren Wiersbe gives easy-to-grasp explanations of each word's theological meaning, along with practical application for the Christian life.
