“Hebraic thought is more than just religion—it’s a fully-formed cultural tradition. It includes that rich collection of ideas, concepts, stories, and values that emerge from the world of ancient Israel.”– Robert Nicholson
The Hebrew Bible contains a rich tapestry of ideas worked out over centuries by the biblical authors. In addition to communicating God’s instruction to His people, we see their thinking on display through their rigorous, systematic thoughts about the nature of reality and how humans can understand reality. These thoughts aren’t just musings; the authors advocate a way of understanding reality. Both their ideas and the way they arrived at those ideas is “Hebraic thought.”
“‘Hebraic thought’ refers to the reasoning and philosophy developed within the Hebrew Bible, continued into the New Testament, and not found elsewhere in the ancient Near East.”– Dr. Dru Johnson
