I had wondered about this before when reading Genesis 1:1 in Hebrew - I don't know if you guys have already discussed this, but anyway:
Why is 'bereshit' translated as 'in THE beginning' when there's a schwa and not that 'a' thingy which indicates definite article? Shouldn't it be like "in A beginning" (yeah, I know it sounds weird in English, but still...)
Please enlighten me...
