Another good reason for using Hebrew text is for the mother tongue 
Hebrew speakers on the list. It doesn't exactly make things easier for 
them, or make for better relationships, when we western Christians 
insist on using our script for their language. We wouldn't be very happy 
if they wrote our language in their script, would we?

Huh?!  What's this supposed to mean.  I wasn't aware we were speaking a 
Christian language with or without a Hebrew script.  I thought we were discussing 
biblical Hebrew which of necessity involves what we Christians call the Old 
Testament but our Jewish friends simply the Bible or the TANAK.  Please explain.
