Even better, if you can become a Hebrew-language scholar at the same time. Wonderful skill set … being able to read and understand Hebrew.
Wish I had that.
On the few times, that I was able to use a Hebrew translation of the Bible, it made a HUGE difference in my understanding.
One tiny example: this guy:
Simcha Jacobovici does an amazing job with his television program getting close to Biblical sites and providing an appreciation that really helps me understand what took place there and the significance.
He also seems to have a reverence for Jesus … at one point, he visited the place where Jesus’ house stood. And there were hand marks in the plaster. And he reverently placed his hand in what he thought might be the handprint of Jesus.
