Yes, and so the biblical Hebrew corresponded to its own cosmology which
was Elohist/Yahvist. It was not inclusive of the ideologies of its neighbors
or enemies, thus what it meant then is what it means today. The Hebrew is
also dynamic and the Greek static, and in that sense incompetent to fully
communicate Hebrew thoghtforms as seen in the examples provided by others
(i.e., tsedakah/righteousness, Torah/Law, etc.).
About dynamic vs static language brings to mind a course that a corporation
offered us. Actually insisted we take.
The presenter was a Dr. Barbara Stuckey who published THE EXACT WORD. She
was a linguist. She told us that Anglo-Saxon language was originally only
oral. (It has been my research since that it was the creation of the
written Bible in Anglo-Saxon that created the English Language.) She said
that when they fixed the written language by Christian clergy, that they
used the rules of Latin grammar which made English rigid. She developed a
list of 200 English words that would accomplish business communications.
One of my fellow employees who came from IIRC Puerto Rico didn't want to
attend. He said he became a citizen and that was enough (back then you had
to know English). It wasn't long into the course that he said he was glad
he attended, he learned a lot more about the comfort level of the English
Is this a further explanation of the quoted message?
