Biblical Hebrew Study Book – The Garden of Eden


The Garden of Eden

The story of the Garden of Eden is one of the most exceptional stories in the Bible.

After a perfect creation, after all the beautiful descriptions of what happened day after day, we get to the Garden of Eden.

Adam and Eve were only in the garden for a short period of time. They ate for the Tree of Knowledge, and their eyes were suddenly opened.

What does this really mean? How are we to understand the Biblical words, “Vatipakachnah eyney shneyhem“?

When God comes to Adam and Eve after they’ve eaten from the Tree of Knowledge, He starts the conversation with them with the words, “Where art thou?” In Hebrew – ayeka.

This word is in fact made up of two Hebrew words – what are they?

The answer Eve gives to God is expressed with very unique words that have many meanings in Hebrew. What are these meanings and do they change the essence of her answer?

When we better understand the Hebrew words, which are the source of the Bible, we better understand the entire story.

In the series, about the story of the Garden of Eden, you’ll learn the meaning of a number of Hebrew words – even without having any previous knowledge of Hebrew.
