If you were summarizing the story of God’s creation, would you conclude with Adam and Eve were naked ? Nakedness might be sexy, but nudity cannot be the climax of the Creation story. The deeper dimension of understanding is hidden.
This insightful, hard-hitting course explains what nakedness truly exhibits. Discover the intense climax of God’s creation. The Biblical Hebrew illustrates what your native language cannot portray.
In Biblical Hebrew, the word for naked (describing Adam and Eve, Genesis 2.27) and subtle (describing the Serpent Genesis 3.1) is identical (you’ll grasp this in the course using the FREE online Bible Study tools). Learn that the key to this climax is understanding why the same Hebrew word has two seemingly unrelated English translations; this is impossible to see and know in any translation, that’s why you’ll delve into the original Biblical Hebrew. It’s so accessible you’ll be blown away.
Be prepared to have your eyes opened wide. Learn a few of the keys to Master Biblical Hebrew to Unlock Bible Meaning, with no fuss. You’ll take your new mastery and dive into your own exhilarating Bible Study.
I learned a lot about using a concordance in this course. The instructor was interesting to listen to and obviously knew his topic. Theresa K.
it was very easy to follow, very informative, and very methodical. Gloria S.
It is something i have been searching for, a way to get past the translations and get to the deeper meaning of God’s word. Sheli
I have long suspected that the Adam and Eve story had a much deeper meaning. This course shows that what I suspected was true. An interesting way to look at the story. I am glad I took this course. Joseph W.
The instructor was very precise in his delivery and how to check the meaning. It was really helpful to learn the power of the Hebrew behind the words. Phyllis C.
It’s a SHAME!..after many bible translations most people still have a blurred “understanding” of what Sam Kneller, so elegantly clarifies in this course. See it for yourself. This is a MUST TAKE COURSE for everyone, no matter their beliefs (or non-beliefs) are. Hey!, if you can’t really comprehend the CLIMAX in ‘the first story’…forget PhDs. Thanks! Jesse C.
He explains in very slow and concise manner. Allowing a student to keep up with the lesson. JoAnne J.
A good lesson on words meaning and how to study them. It is not always what we think or what we have been taught. We need to understand what the authors meant when they wrote this, knowing that the entire was inspired by God for teaching us, correcting us, etc. (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Marcel R.
I think it is well organized and very informative. I thought the instructor could be a little more enthusiastic but I think that might just be because everyone who teaches now acts like they have just won the lottery. Overall, I think it was great. Myrna P.
For someone so old willing to take his time to share his knowledge with the world, he deserves 5 stars. If the video you find it too long, doesn’t matter, pay attention to the materials he has to share. In fact, the aim of this course is for him to enable you to self-learn independently. Shung J.
Found this course to give a clear and useful example of using the website and tools mentioned. Need to be open-minded and willing to explore the Bible, rather than dogmatic, to get the most from this course. Thanks, Sam, for introducing me to these tools. I look forward to further explorations. Robin S.

Teacher, Author, Worldview crafter
I was born in London and has lived in the United Kingdom, South Africa, Spain, Canada, Israel, Belgium, and—for the past thirty-five years—France. After spending twenty-five years in the Christian ministry in Quebec and France, I taught website creation at the American University in Paris and worked as a technical writer.
In 1998 I founded BonjourLaFrance.com, which has become a successful site for travel and tourism in France. I'm currently occupied with webmastering, studying, teaching, speaking, and writing including my blog The Explanation.
Inventory of the Universe, my first book is published with Audit of the Universe and Origin of the Universe on the way. Not to give everything away, but this third book delves into Genesis and the Biblical Hebrew.
I started learning Hebrew at the age of 10 and lived in Israel for 2 years where I learnt 'street Hebrew.' Since then unfortunately, not having used the language, I've forgotten a lot but what I do know has helped me immensely with comprehension and 'getting around' with Biblical Hebrew.
During my ministry studying the original language of the Old Testament threw new light on words and hence subjects and understanding.
To be right up front with you some time after I left the full time ministry I began thinking of writing about Bible comprehension via Biblical Hebrew but I wasn't sure that my method was valid. To verify that I took 2 years of online courses with eTeacherHebrew where I could learn and ask questions. In so doing I came to the conclusion that my method is valid.
It is that method, of understanding the Bible via Biblical Hebrew - without learning the alphabet, the grammar ... or the vocabulary, that I'll share with you during this course.
Sounds a little far-fetched. Well, you will have to use a couple of 'tools' to do this but everything is online, free and accessible 24/7/365 for your on-going study. This course will help you get started in your quest to better understand the Bible.
It appears this teacher is NOT Fluent in Hebrew, but only is teaching how to use Strongs resources. Which Strongs is an ok reference and can be a Starter for learning how the KJV Translators worked. But sadly, just listening to him is that he just only knows how to use Strongs and doesn't look like he is confused sometimes how Strongs got some things wrong. Which shows he does'nt appear to know Hebrew; and doesn't know that the KJV Translators did NOT have a Fluent Hebrew Scholar so they had to use the Septuagint (Greek Translation of the TANAKH / OT) and not the Hebrew Manuscripts which they did have but were lacking Resources to truly use them. Spoiler alert: He tries to show that Adam & Eve are NOT Naked. But does NOT cover where they make clothes out of Leaves. Good course if one needs to learn how to use "ONLY" KJV Strongs Resources but not anything else. He tries to show how to connect the H# & G# of Strongs but they often added words to make it understandable in English; and the Strongs KJV Translators showed they did NOT understand most of the Hebrew. I do not believe this teacher knows Ibri (Hebrew for Hebrew) only is a KJV ONLY type. He also teaches this course as the Bible is only Literature and NOT the Word of Elohim (Hebrew for GOD). He ends showing only using the Bible like someone would use Shakespeare to see how civilization has changed. Does not teach how to follow the Command of 1 Thess 5:19-24 to test including test if the Strongs Translations of Hebrew words got it right. If you are very confused on how to use Strongs resources then maybe ... but if want to learn Biblical Hebrew this in NOT the course to take.
Clear and concise. Easy to follow and understand.
Great explanations on how there are many connotations and interpretations of Hebrew
