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

After completing the course, the two traits of Hebraic leadership that stuck out to me are wisdom and friendship.

More specifically, wisdom in the leader’s knowledge of where they are going. In order to know where to lead others, you must first know where things began and what they are ultimately leading towards. Without those two things both parties are lost in a sense of meaninglessness. The Hebraic leader is rooted in the Hebraic tradition which provides the boundaries within which decisions can be made. Ultimately, continually growing in wisdom and knowledge of God is what cultivates this trait for the Hebraic leader.

Second, a Hebraic leader must have deep love and friendship for others. This trait in particular stuck out to me because of how beuatifully it can be seen throughout Scipture. In many ways God’s people have demonstrated profound love for others even in times of great hardship. For example, the prophets continually preached repentance in the hopes their fellow Israelites would turn back to God.
