I totally agree with the statement, “Hebraic Thought is the greatest intellectual tradition in the history of humanity.”

Hebraic thought refers to someone who sees the world through Biblical eyes—the eyes through which Jesus Himself and His followers saw the world. We can extend these biblical principles from their original contexts into our modern context in a potentially infinite number of ways.

Here are some lessons out of the Hebraic tradition:

– There is a almighty God. Humans are the secondary character, living in dialogue
with the God who created them. Humans are comprised of two parts, body and spirit,
which together make up a soul.
– Relationships, respect and love of the neighbor is very important.
– We can understand the world in space and time. The world is a narrative with a
beginning, middle and end.
– All of us has the responsibility and ability to shape history in a positive way. In
the end there will be a final judgement.
