As a foreign language, it is studied mostly by Jews and students of Judaism and Israel, and by archaeologists and linguists specializing in the Middle East and its civilizations, as well as by theologians in Christian seminaries.
The first five books of the Torah, and most of the rest of the Hebrew Bible, is written in Biblical Hebrew, with much of its present form in the dialect that scholars believe flourished around the 6th century BCE, around the time of the Babylonian captivity.
In addition, many of our members are part of Messianic Ministries or Messianic Israel Ministries and are Jewish Christians and Hebrew Christians.
We also have a Messianic Music section on our website featuring artists such as Paul Wilbur, Marty Goetz, Jonathan Settel, and Joel Chernoff.
Hebrew survived into the medieval period as the language of Jewish liturgy, rabbinic literature, intra-Jewish commerce and poetry.
