Do you know where I can find some Hebraic insights on ___ ?

Dear readers,

Over the years, one of the most common questions I’m asked is, “Do you know where can I get some insights on ____ from a Hebraic perspective?”

…the Lord’s Prayer?
…Jewish wedding traditions?
…Paul’s words about being a “fragrant offering”?
…the parable of the Ten Virgins?
…Psalm 23?

If I’ve got time, I try to respond and share a link or two from my writing or from a good source I’ve read.

One day I was thinking, wouldn’t it be great if I could give people a “Hebraic Studies Search Bar”? There are about a half-dozen sites that are my short-list when someone asks me a question like this. They have an abundance of articles that specialize on the Hebraic context of Christianity, but are quite readable for non-experts. Of course they include ones with my own writing, but some of my colleagues and mentors have shared a lot of material too.

Well, I have a little gift for you. I made a “Google Custom Search” bar that does this very thing. If you go to the search page, the bar searches just the short list. (The sites are listed on the EnGedi search page.)

Try it out!


I thought it did quite a good job of pulling up pertinent articles, and I like to use it myself. It’s not comprehensive, but you can always go back to Google.

Welcome to En-Gedi’s Brand New Site

Shalom, friends!

As of September 2015, the En-Gedi Resource Center has a brand new website at Please take a look around! (You can still see the original En-Gedi site at En-Gedi is gradually moving over to this platform, which is organized more topically, to make it easier for people who are searching for articles.

It’s still a work in progress. Even though there are already over four hundred articles on this site, there are still hundreds of articles and links that still need to move. More topics will be added over time as we add more articles. (If you’d like to help, please email us 🙂 or consider a donation to help support the project.)

The page that we’ve done the most on is Jesus’ Jewishness >> His Sayings in Context. There you see an introduction to the topic, along with brief articles and longer essays. At the bottom of the page are links to other useful sites. Someday all the pages will be that way, Lord willing.

Check out our glossary, bookstore and freebies page too, while you’re looking around.

Many thanks for your prayers and support,

Lois Tverberg
