Vis-Ed Biblical Hebrew Vocabulary Flash Cards
This set contains over 1200 words from the vocabulary of the Hebrew Bible. Take them with you and use them every day for reinforcement of your Hebrew. An indispensible Resource! Amazon.

 

Biblical Hebrew: Step-by-Step. Menahem Mansoor has written two volumes of an introductory grammar. These books might be suitable for those who want a less rigorous approach to the subject than Pratico, Ross, or the Kelly textbooks. Amazon. 4 Stars

 

The First Hebrew Primer provides a more gradual, yet thorough, approach to standard Biblical Hebrew grammars by dividing topics into 30 logical lessons. An additional Answer Key is useful for self-study. A good choice for adult learners. Amazon. 4 Stars

 

Shalav Aleph

Ivrit: Shalav Aleph (Hebrew: A Language Course Level One) provides an inductive approach to learning Hebrew. Prerequisites for using this book include a working knowledge of the phonetics and mechanics of Hebrew. Note that this book is intended as a beginner's guide for Modern Hebrew (not Biblical Hebrew).

 

Intermediate Hebrew Books

These books are suitable for those who want to study the grammar of Biblical Hebrew in order to eventually read and study the Hebrew Scriptures.

Biblical Hebrew

Biblical Hebrew. Page H. Kelly has written an excellent introductory text to Biblical Hebrew. The separately sold workbook is a must-have item. This is one of the better intermediate-level grammars I've seen so far. Highly recommended. 5 Stars Amazon.

 

Basics of Biblical Hebrew

Basics of Biblical Hebrew. Gary Pratico and Miles Van Pelt have collaborated on a fine seminary-level introduction to Biblical Hebrew grammar. An accompanying workbook is not included but should be considered mandatory for writing exercises. Amazon. 4 Stars

 

Introducing Biblical Hebrew

Introducing Biblical Hebrew. Allen P. Ross has written a grammar that has grown out of his experience teaching Hebrew to seminary students for over thirty years. This is a good book, and I would recommend it for use in a classroom setting. The phonetics (transliterations) are a bit scholarly, however.

 

Invitation to Biblical Hebrew. Russell Fuller (Ph.D., Hebrew Union College). This clear, accurate, and pedagogically sound textbook emphasizes the basics: Hebrew phonology (sounds) and morphology (forms). This grammar avoids jargon or technical language. (not rated)

 

Beginning Biblical Hebrew (Hardcover). Mark Futato. An excellent introduction to Biblical Hebrew, that does not go as far as Kelly or Pratico, but is generally more accessible for those getting into the world of Hebrew.

 

Biblical Hebrew: An Introductory Textbook. Nancy deClaissé-Walford. A very user-friendly, basic introduction to Classical Hebrew. Intended for beginning students with no previous knowledge of the language. No companion workbook is available. (not rated)

 

Basics of Biblical Hebrew

Grammatical Concepts 101 for Biblical Hebrew. This volume is a helpful counterpart to textbooks of Biblical Hebrew. Explanations of grammatical concepts and terms provide students with the framework they need to understand language structures. (not rated)

 

Biblical Hebrew: A Text and Workbook (Yale Language Series). Each of the 55 lessons in this large textbook is built around a biblical verse or segment that generates the grammatical concepts to be taught. An inductive approach. The typesetting is a bit odd.

 

Pratico and Van Pelt

A Guide to Biblical Hebrew Syntax by Bill T. Arnold and John H. Choi. A concise guide intended to help you master the intermediate-level skills required to interpret the syntax of the Bible's original language.

 

Pratico and Van Pelt

The Vocabulary Guide of Biblical Hebrew.
Pratico and Miles Van Pelt have collaborated to produce a word-frequency guide to Hebrew words appearing in the Tanakh. Optional but nice to have. For ease of use, however, I would recommend the VIS-Ed cards, shown above.

 

501 Hebrew Verbs : Fully Conjugated in All the Tenses. Barrows. This book presents each verb on a full page, completely conjugated in all tenses. Note that this book is based on word roots, so you must know the root word before lookup. (advanced)

 

Esoteric Hebrew

These books are suitable for those who want to study some of the more unusual features of Hebrew. They are not recommended for those who are not well-grounded in their faith.

Wisdom in Alphabet

The Wisdom in the Hebrew Alphabet is perhaps the definitive work on the subject of the Hebrew otiyot (letters) and their mystical significance from an Orthodox Jewish perspective. Rabbi Michael Munk draws upon his vast knowledge of Torah, Talmud, and Kabbalistic literature to produce the best book on the subject to date. 

 

Hebrew Alphabet

The Hebrew Alphabet: A Mystical Journey by Rabbi Edward Hoffman is more of a gift book than a serious study of the Hebrew alphabet. There are some good insights in the book, however.

 

Book of Letters

The Book of Letters by Rabbi Lawrence Kushner is pretty much a waste of money. If you can find it cheap and used, then it's entertaining, but for any serious effort to appreciate the Hebrew Alphabet, go with Rabbi Munk's book instead. An arty book with not a lot of substance that might make a nice gift for someone. 

 

Book of Letters

The Oracle of Kabbalah: Mystical Teachings of the Hebrew Letters by Richard Seidman and Lawrence Kushner.  Another wild ride into the speculative nuances that the Hebrew text can evoke and suggest. This is Kabbalistic mysticism: read at your own risk!

 

Book of Letters

The Inner Meaning of the Hebrew Letters by Robert M. Haralick. A gematria-styled look at the Hebrew alphabet, based on permutations and other forms of Kabbalistic technique.  Not recommended for new learners of Hebrew or those who are unsure of their faith.

 

Book of Letters

The Secrets of Hebrew Words by Benjamin Blech. A sod-level analysis of various Hebrew words that uses gematria and other speculative methods to draw inferences.  A sequel volume (More Secrets of Hebrew Words) is also available through Amazon.

 

Hebrew Bibles

These are some of the more readily available works of the Hebrew Bible in codex form.

EKS Beginning Siddur Dictionary

BHS

Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) is the scholar's first choice for studying the Hebrew Masoretic text. Consider this text mandatory if you are serious about getting into the Hebrew Tanakh and want the scholarly apparatus (i.e., masoretic notes and textual criticism additions) required for doing research. 5 Stars

 

BHS Paperback

Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (Paperback Edition) is the less expensive student's edition of the hardcover. The same Masoretic text and critical apparatus is provided, though the text size is smaller and more difficult to read. You can mark the pages of this edition, however! 4 Stars

 

Sefer HaBritot

Sefer HaBritot: Hebrew-English Bible is an interlinear Bible that has the Hebrew and English (NKJV) running parallel on each page. This a great resource for learning your Hebrew and for doing Hebrew word studies. The typeset is a bit small for new learners, however. 5 Stars

 

Interlinear NIV Hebrew-Englis

The Interlinear NIV Hebrew-English Old Testament, by Kohlenberger. The standard Hebrew text, Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia, with all necessary variant readings and major textual conjectures in footnotes. The New International Version (North American Edition) as the English parallel text. 5 Stars

 

JPS Hebrew-English

The JPS Hebrew-English Tanakh features the oldest known complete version of the Holy Scriptures, placed next to JPS's renowned English translation, considered by both Jewish and Christian scholars. Hebrew text includes cantillation marks, vocalization and verse numbers. 4 Stars

 

Interlinear Bible

The Interlinear Bible: Hebrew/Greek/English by J.P. Green. An interlinear with both the Hebrew-English Old Testament and Greek-English New Testament. Text size is really small, however, so be prepared to use a magnifying glass. Otherwise a one of a kind reference. 4 Stars

Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon. The BDB is considered the finest and most comprehensive Hebrew lexicon available to the English-speaking student. Based upon the classic work of Wilhelm Gesenius. Note that this is not a user-friendly lexicon.  3 1/2 Stars

 

NIDOTTE

New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology and Exegesis (5 vol set) by Willem A. VanGemeren. Available in book form or on CD ROM, this reference work (based on the NIV) is claimed to be a standard lexicon for serious Hebrew word studies. 5 Stars

Prayerbook Hebrew

Prayerbook Hebrew the Easy Way is a best-selling book (with additional workbook) that introduces you to segments of common synagogue prayers. You may also obtain audio CDs of the readings in this book. I like most of what I see from EKS, so I can recommend this title without reservation. 3 1/2 Stars

 

EKS Beginning Siddur Dictionary

The Beginner's Dictionary of Prayerbook Hebrew was specifically designed to be easy to use. Most Hebrew dictionaries list words alphabetically by root forms. If you do not know the root, you cannot look up the word. This dictionary lists words exactly as they appear in Jewish prayerbooks. Restricted to the Siddur, however. 3 1/2 Stars

 

Siddur

The Artscroll Interlinear Siddur is the best Orthodox siddur available today, with careful details, excellent typography, and easy-to-use page design. If at all possible, purchase the Shottenstein Edition for both the Weekday prayerbook and the Machzor. You cannot go wrong with these books.  5 Stars

 

Doorposts of your house

On the Doorposts of Your House, by Chaim Stern, is a book that provides various Hebrew berachot (blessings) as listed in the Hebrew prayerbook, with Reform Judaism interpretations. Makes a wonderful Bar- or Bat Mitzvah gift for someone you love, too. 3 1/2 Stars

 

Jewish Roots:

These books help you better understand the Jewish roots of the Christian faith.  Note that this is a mere sampling of books, and I will update this if I find the time. Click here for more.

Our Father Abraham

Our Father Abraham by Dr. Marvin Wilson is a foundational writing that will help you better understand the impetus behind the Jewish Roots movement and why so many Bible-believing Christians are turning to the Jewish faith for nourishment and strength. For those new to the Hebraic mindset, this is a great place to start your learning!

 

Our Father Abraham

Israelology: The Missing Link in Systematic Theology by Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum provides a complete overview and analysis of the Biblical view of Israel - past, present, and future. Though it is over 1,000 pages, it reads easily and is quite engaging to those who are interested in this vital subject.

The Life and Times of Jesus Messiah: New Updated Edition by Alfred Edersheim. One of the most important references on the life of Christ ever written.

Provocations

The Christian and the Pharisee: Two Outspoken Religious Leaders Debate the Road to Heaven

Helps you learn to deal with the challenges of living in a predominately Greek-based culture today.

 

The Messiah Texts

The Messiah Texts by Raphael Patai. The most comprehensive compilation of Jewish texts about the Messiah in English.

Provocations

Provocations

Pagan Christianity? by Frank Viola and George Barna. While this book frankly ignores the Jewish roots of the Christian faith, it does catalog various pagan influences emodied in Church traditions that fueled the loss of Messianic Jewish perspective. Helpful for institutional church-goers.

 

Christian Anti Semitism

Provocations

Theologians Under Hitler by Robert P. Ericksen. Three of Germany's great Protestant theological thinkers supported Adolf Hitler: Gerhard Kittel, Paul Althaus, and Emmanuel Hirsch. Kittel, in particular is still widely regarded by NT scholars. 

 

Provocations

Our Hands Are Stained with Blood by Michael L. Brown and Don Wilkerson.
