The script styles have changed over the centuries. First Temple script, for example, looks more like Phoenician than later Aramaic-style script. In fact, the earliest Hebrew script seems to be Phoenician. Historically speaking, the language is Hebrew - regardless of what script was used to encode the sounds...

If you are interested in learning Biblical Hebrew, you should begin with the "square script" used in the Bible (ketav ashurit). Yeshua endorsed this script when he said that not one "jot or tittel" would pass until all was fulfilled.

As for finding various Hebrew fonts, there are some links on the Hebrew for Christians links page.
