The Bible is an Ancient Near Eastern text, which was written millennia ago within a time and culture that is vastly different from our own. The authors of the Bible had a perspective on life and the world around them that was steeped with their own traditions, customs and thoughts. When reading and studying this text we cannot interject our own cultural perspectives into the text, to do so would bring about interpretations and conclusions that are far removed from its intended meaning. But if we read the Bible from the perspective of those who wrote it and study their language, philosophy and culture from within its original context, the Bible will spring to life in ways you never thought possible.

Jeff A Benner has authored 20 books related to biblical studies and is an instructor in Biblical Hebrew and has taught thousands how to read the Bible in Hebrew for themselves. Mr. Benner desires to assist his readers with proper Biblical interpretation, based on the original cultural and linguistic context of the Bible, a key ingredient to Biblical studies that is often ignored, so they may gain a deeper understanding and insight into the intended meaning of the Scriptures. To this end, he has dedicated over 20 years of research, documenting the connections between the language of the Bible and the culture in which it was written.
