Reply To: In Lecture 2, Dr. Dru Johnson mentions that there has been a decline in biblical literacy in the Church. After taking this course, what are some recommendations you would give to church leadership to increase biblical literacy?


My recommendation for church leadership is: returning to origins. I mean, give the Hebrew back! When I started learning Hebrew, I noticed that many words, biblical passages were deeper than I thought. The Hebrew interpretation is different and much better. When we don’t have that recognition, we miss the best of meaning. In my small group, when I deliver the word of God, I usually talk about the verse in Hebrew and Portuguese (I’m from Brazil) and they were amazed to know a new understanding and that’s wonderful. We always leave happy with a new understanding.
