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

After taking this course, I would define Hebraic leadership as a way of leading with the foundation of a Biblical worldview. To me this means using the moral codes of the Bible and the leaders of the Bible as guides and examples of how to be a leader. This means wielding power not just for the sake of wielding power, but using that authority for good and to glorify God. The Hebraic leader has to accept that politics are a gift from God, so he must wield some coercive power in exercising this gift. In having this Biblical worldview, the Hebraic leader must lead both as an individual and as a member of the larger body of God’s children. This also keeps the Hebraic leader humble; he is not almighty and singular as God is, and him being a member of God’s children reminds him that he is guiding them and himself to God’s Kingdom.
