Biblical Hebrew Study Book – The Story of Joseph the King


Joseph, the viceroy of the King of Egypt

This study book deal with the period during which Joseph was in Egypt.

Here you can find words also connected to kibbutz – the type of living arrangements popular in Israel in recent times. Of course, in Biblical times the concept of the modern kibbutz did not yet exist. However, the interesting explanation of the phrase “And let them gather,” will bring you to Hebrew commentaries.

In this series, you also learn the meaning of the name Joseph was given by Pharaoh – Tsofnat Paneach.

The English translators were not able to explain these words of the name Pharaoh gave Joseph, and they simply transliterated them leaving the name as it appears in the original text.

We discuss another word found in the Bible that was not translated into English – gammadim.

Here, from what we can understand, the translators didn’t understand the meaning of this word that appears in the Book of Ezekiel 27:11. Therefore, they simply transliterated it and didn’t attempt to translate it.

However, after many years of commentary, we bring a few explanations for this word. You be surprised to discover when you read about this word that deals with dwarfs, wars, psychological safety of leaders, and the like.

Finally, we will deal with the Hebrew word that is connected to the English word coupon, which we know and love.

Simply put, we highly recommend you read this series.
