Reply To: After taking this course, in your own words, please define Hebraic leadership and what it means to you.

Michael Caplan

A proper orientation toward where one is seeking to leading others to and a recognition that the telos being pursued remains the same as the words of Matthew 6:33 “Seek first the kingdom of God.” By definition a Hebraic leader is a guide to others but also respectful of the context in which he operates and desirous of the group’s common good, not primarily his own glorification. Hebraic leadership mandates a rootedness in historical & biblical knowledge and devotion to transcendent aims. Those transcendent aims entail building a relationship here on Earth with God and remaining a part of community even while distinguishing oneself from others through leadership roles taken. Hebraic leaders are not stilted or enslaved to convention, they operate dynamically. These leaders are bold in their zeal for their mission while also humble in how they view themselves in relation to others. A Hebraic leader does not lose sight of where they are going because they incarnationally live in community and worship God with the very same people who they seek to lead.
