This Week’s Bible Study

The second reading of the “Bible in a year” study starting in the book of Genesis is named after Noah. In Hebrew, the name Noah is pronounced and spelled Noach (נח). The word Noach is related to the Hebrew word for “rest or comfort”.

You will also find study guides by chapter and advanced study of the original languages following the Bible study outline. While it is our belief that many of the letters of the New Testament were originally written in Aramaic and/ or Hebrew, the Greek texts are used for study even when there are known Hebrew manuscripts (eg. Mathew and Hebrews).

Revelation Chapter 2 Study Guide


Genesis 5:29 says that his parents named him Noah (Noach נח) because they hoped their son would give them rest (nacham, נחם) from their toil. The contents of section Noah tell the story of Noah’s flood, the tower of Babel and the beginning of the Abrahamic line.

Human evil grieves God’s heart. God is not peering down on the planet making observations like a dispassionate astronaut. Neither is He watching us like a man sitting on a sofa watching a football game. Rather, He is like a Father who observes the behavior of His children. He is like a king taking note of how events unfold in his kingdom. When a father sees his children involved in self-destructive behaviors, it grieves him. When a king sees his subjects living in open rebellion against him, it angers him. As God observed humanity in the days of Noah, He was saddened to see the rampant wickedness of His creations. He saw that every human heart harbored evil. “The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart” (Genesis 6:6).


Hidden Aleph-Tav’s

In the Hebrew Scriptures there are hidden aleph-tav’s [את]  that aren’t usually translated into English. But they are very enlightening when we read them.

In Genesis 11:26 and 27 when Abram’s birth is announced and on the day of his birth there is an את in front of his name.

In Gen 15:18 on the day יהוה makes a covenant with Abram there is an את in front of Abram’s name. The very first time the words “My Covenant” is used

In Gen 6:18 which describes the promise of יהוה covenant with Noah, there appears an את in front of the word “My”, symbolizing the covenant Noah made was actually with יהוה Father through את Y’shua. As you will notice, it is THROUGH את Y’shua throughout the Tanakh that all the everlasting covenants are made with יהוה Father

Starting in Gen 9:9-11 is the covenant both with יהוה through את Y’shua made with Noah;

Gen 9:13 the covenant through Y’shua with all creation with the sign as the את My rainbow;

Gen 17:7 is the covenant through את Y’shua with Abram after his name is changed to Abraham;

Gen 17:19 is the covenant through את Y’shua with Isaac;

Ex 6:4-5 mentions the covenant through את Y’shua makes with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and all their descendants, theChildren of Israel;
Ex 19:5 is the covenant through את Y’shua with Moses;
Num 25:12 is the Covenant of Peace through את Y’shua with Phinehas;
Jeremiah 33:15-22 mentions the covenant through את Y’shua has with David and his throne; and a prophecy in Ezekiel 16:60-62 is the prophecy of the everlasting covenant יהוה Father will establish through את Y’shua the Messiah on Calvary.

These are just a few examples which show how our heavenly Father worked with and through His son, Y’shua our Messiah, to establish everlasting covenants with Abraham and His seed (descendants) from the beginning. Once we come into covenant with יהוה Father through את Y’shua our Messiah, who is the door (John 10:7-9), when people bless us, they are blessing את יהוה (Yah-head) and when people curse or harm us, they are harming את יהוה for Y’shua said in Matt 25:40 the King will say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ 45Then He will say, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’
