Remez - reh-mez' "hint" - discerning another meaning to the text an implied meaning. There could be multiple levels of meanings. This is letting the scriptures interpret itself, and not contradict any meanings. Sud - sood "hidden" - understanding the hidden or secret meaning of the text.
An example is Rev. Please also see wiki's Pardes. A good way to understand the Scriptures is to learn the Aibreet or eastern mindset, which is in contrast to the Greek or western mindset.
After all, the Aibreem wrote under both inspiration and their writings reflected the eastern culture their lifestyle. WHAT is the difference and does it really matter? Both of these cultures view their surroundings, lives, and purpose in ways which would seem foreign to the other.
All five of the senses are used when speaking and hearing and writing and reading the Hebrew language. An example of this can be found in Psa ; "He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season, and whose leaf does not wither". In this passage we have concrete words expressing abstract thoughts, such as a tree one who is upright, righteous guarding Torah , streams of water favor, blessing and cleansing , fruit good character and works and a unwithered leaf blessing and prosperity.
Abstract thought Greek is the expression of concepts and ideas in ways that can not be seen, touched, smelled, tasted or heard. The Greek thought is selfish and about self, whereas the Hebrew thought is selfless and NOT about self. Greek thought would be the following description of a common pen: "it is black and about 6 inches long". A Hebrew description of the pen would be related to its function such as "I write words with it". Were these ultimately copies of Greek or Semitic i. Positions vary on the matter of Primacy, most scholars opting for the more traditional view of Western Christianity, that they were originally written in Greek.
However, there are various scholars who dispute this intensely, maintaining that at least part, if not all of the Second Writings are of Semitic origin. The Peshitta in its current form does not go back beyond the fourth century, but its advocates strongly maintain that it rests firmly upon Aramaic originals.
We are not going to go argue the case here, beyond stating that we believe that there is a very strong case to be made for the view that the originals were inspired in a Semitic language and not in Greek, as is commonly supposed. This means of course, for the ISR, that we have to attempt to put before the reader an English text that truthfully and accurately reflects the inspired Semitic originals, when in fact the oldest and vast majority of texts we have available are Greek!
A daunting task indeed. To the extent that we have succeeded in this, we can only give praise to the Most High. However we are well aware of our shortcomings, and the possibility, even the probability that we have fallen far short of our goal.
In this respect, let it be said that we do not view our work as in any way final or definitive.
Rather, we hope that it will encourage others to re-examine what they may have always taken for granted, and to research these matters for themselves. We extend an ongoing invitation to any who can give input that will improve future editions of The Scriptures, especially in regard to the matter of Semitic originals.
What text then were we to use? Even here, however there are problems, in that for each of the main streams of textual types e. Alexandrinus, Sinaiticus, and Vaticanus there are those who contend that a particular type and that one alone represents the true original.
Hence whatever readings we have adopted will inevitably offend those contending for any one of the main textual types as the true original. We cannot therefore claim that our text represents a translation of any particular underlying text. However, with a few names there was a problem, e.
Therefore it was decided to strive for consistency and render such names according to a single spelling, in order to retain the original pronunciation as best we could. The word Torah is better understood as "teaching" or "understanding" rather than "law. Prophets The prophetical books are subdivided into two parts: Four books of the "Former" prophets and 15 books of the "Latter" prophets Nevi'im makes the "n" of Tanakh.
Writings Assorted sacred writings, including Psalms, Proverbs, and some historical books.
There are 12 books in this division of the Tanakh Ketuvim makes the "k h " of Tanakh. Though the Christian Old Testament is the result of the canonization of the Jewish scriptures, the order of the books in the Tanakh is not identical to the Christian Old Testament though content is the same , and chapter and verse references are not always identical between the Old Testament and the Tanakh.
Traditionally, weekly Torah readings called parashiyot of the entire Torah are completed during one year.
