Jeremiah Chapter 1

There are several words in the Bible we don’t understand

They pose a problem for us, because they’re common words,
- and we assume we know what they mean
• that is why we get confused when we come to them
◦ for instance: "name," "fear" ("Am I supposed to be afraid of God?"), "holy," and "sons of"
• biblical Hebrew has a small vocabulary
◦ so it has to expand the meaning of various words
◦ that enabled biblical writers to describe spiritual values and experience
- I thought a series of talks on those words might be helpful
• a short dictionary of words that confuse or upset us
