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

Elias Ferenczy

This course has helped me define Hebraic leadership through the lens of a patriarch such as Abraham. God established Abraham’s “hero’s journey” by calling him to leave his country and embark on a trial of faith. Despite Abraham’s rebellion and doubt (Genesis 16:15, Genesis 17:17 )and amidst deadly obstacles (Genesis 22:1), The Lord taught Abraham to conduct both himself and others. In the end, this transformed Abraham into a vessel for God’s profound work.

The nation that Abraham fathered would require a new leader and literal navigator: Moses. Navigators rely on maps, which we find through history, general revelation, and the Holy Spirit. To lead well is to rely on maps. There is strength in weakness (2 Corinthians 2:10).

Finally, Hebraic leadership imitates Christ. Christians often describe Christ as a servant. We must not, however, view servanthood and leadership as opposing, but recognize that Christ perfectly blends the two characteristics.
