On the Tip of Our Tongue
The Hebrew Bible and the English Language

More than we might have imagined, the language, imagery and thought patterns of the Hebrew Bible have left an indelible imprint on our daily speech and literature. Indeed, ancient Hebraisms are never very far from the tip of our tongues. English translations, such as the justly famous King James Bible, facilitated the introduction and retention of Hebrew idioms and expressions into our own language, which we most often employ unaware of their origin and even their original meanings. Join us in discovering some of the most ancient roots of our present day culture.
