Product Description

From the Publisher

An indepth look at the names of God as understood by the ancient Hebrews whose writings in the Bible are filled with vivid images of God lost through translation and culture.

From the Author

I wrote this book as a result of the many requests for the meanings of the various names of God in the Bible. This book details how the ancient Hebrews understood God from their cultural perspective. What is a name? In our modern western culture a name is simply an identifier but to the Hebrews, a name contained the whole of the individual. Probably the most common name of God in Hebrew is Elohiym and from an ancient Hebraic perspective this word means "The mighty one who yokes himself to his people".

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By S. J. Crews on March 9 2004
Format: Paperback
This book, as well as all of Jeff Benner's materials, are an absolute must for anyone interested in truly understanding the Bible. The insights are fabulous. By understanding the pictures expressed by the original Hebrew characters, Jeff takes us right back to the root of the word and shows the common sense meaning. With every Hebrew word studied, you leave with a sense of its simplicity and yet its profound implications. In His Name is One, Jeff takes you through many of the Hebrew words used to describe God. It gives tremendous insights into the character of God. I have many dictionaries, concordances, and word study books, but I consider Jeff Brenner's materials more valueable than anything available. They are scholarly and inspirational. I have purchased everything he has written and constantly reference them. I will not be without them. Biblical word study is powerful, and Jeff Benner's materials open the doors of understanding unlike anything else. I can't say enough praises about his books, and the blessings I have received thru them.

Format: Paperback
The material contained within the pages of this book exemplifies the fact that the Hebrew language as well as the Scriptures are alive, not static as many would have it. Those of us whose native tongue is English are at a great disadvantage when trying to grasp a fuller meaning of the Scriptures. Mr. Benner does an excellent job of bridging the gap of Western thought and Eastern concepts in language, which is intrinsic in understanding Hebrew and the nature of the various names of God within the Scriptures.
This work clearly demonstrates that each letter of the Hebrew language (specially the ancient Paleo-Hebrew) has a meaning and life all its own. When combined into words, the words of Scripture truly jump to life before your eyes. As I was reading this book, I came to see Hebrew as more of a multi-dimensional language in which the character of Yahweh, Yahshua and the Ruach are intertwined.
I highly recommend "His Name Is One" to anyone seeking a richer meaning to Scripture and a deeper spiritual connection to the Almighty whom we serve.

Jeff Benner's books "His Name Is One" and "The Ancient Hebrew Language and Alphabet" are must reads for all Christians. Christianity over the millenia has stripped away it's Jewish roots thereby depriving today's Christian of it's rich heritage.
Jeff's books help retrieve some of that lost heritage and introduces you to a God that is more awesome and more personal than you thought possible. I am anxious to read "Learn Biblical Hebrew"!

A good introduction to Concrete Hebrew thought in the Biblical Text. March 21 2006
By L. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In the world of Biblical language studies there are numerous learning materials that teach one how to simply translate words from their form in one language to another. However, very few will explain to a person the difference between the cultures of two people, and how this affectts interpretation and translation.

This book will do just that; it will give the reader a firm introduction to ancient Hebrew culture, and how it affects the way we read, and translate the Old testament from the Hebrew scriptures. More specifically, how we translate the names of God, and view God. We, the English speaking world of today view God from a very abstract point. Most of us view God as an old man, resembling pictures of "father time", or as some glowing force in outer space somewhere, or as some "unseen force". To the ancient Hebrews, God was a father, a shepherd, a friend, and a savior. This will all become apparent upon reading this book.

As a student of Biblical Languages (Biblical Hebrew, Ancient Pictographic Hebrew, Ancient Greek, and Aramaic), I highly recommend this book. it is a must for all those who wish to obtain a deeper level of understanding concerning God, and how we view him through the Bible.

Off with the Greek and on with the Hebrew...at last Aug. 30 2006
By Mr. Jason C. Jordan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jeff A. Benner's book, His Name is One, proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that learning Hebrew reveals gems within the Scriptures that will never be unearthed if one continues to cling to the sanitised NIV or King James English Versions.

Potentially volatile issues such as the oneness of the Father and the Son and the trinity dissipate into obscurity when one becomes unshackled by Greco-Roman thought and dons a Hebrew mindset.

A must have book for anyone who wishes to immerse themselves in a whole new world that is at best only hinted at in mainstream Christianity.
