In a Paris cafe
in 1881, a group met to have a conversation, a conversation using the
Hebrew language and it may have been the first modern conversation in
Hebrew in some 2000 years.
Ben Yehuda was one of the group speaking in Hebrew and Ben Yehuda would
use this conversation to launch an effort to revive the Hebrew language
as a spoken language a language that would become the mother tongue of
the Israeli people today.
Yehuda would during his lifetime establish an institution which would
create new Hebrew words for today's society and give the Jewish people
the language of their forefathers that is a spoken language once again
in our world.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The revival of the Hebrew language, the mother tongue of Israelis today, is evidence that Bible prophecy is being fulfilled.
Ben Yehuda, a European Jew in the late 1800's who immigrated to Israel
to raise his family would become the man credited with reviving the
ancient Hebrew language. For almost 2000 years, Hebrew was not a spoken
language with the exception of a few phrases used in religious
activities. Ben Yehuda, starting with a conversation with friends in
Paris, France developed a modern day usage of the language of the Jewish
people for the first 2000 years of their existence.
day Hebrew is made up of Biblical Hebrew which is 80% of modern day
Hebrew and 20% of new Hebrew words that have been created over the last
130 years. Ben Yehuda put together the first Hebrew dictionary for
modern Hebrew and developed the way to teach the language which is
called "Ulpan". This account of how Hebrew was revived for usage today
is an evidence of how Bible prophecy is being fulfilled today.
an ancient Jewish prophet wrote 2500 years ago that when the Jews would
return to the land of their forefathers, Jeremiah 31:8-17, the Lord
would give them back the language of their forefathers, the language
they would use to bless the Lord, Jeremiah 31:23. Another Jewish
prophet, Zephaniah, also predicted that the pure language of Hebrew
would be revived in the last days, Zephaniah 3:9.
Israelis speaking Hebrew today proves that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
