The Rabbis of the Talmud identify the Biblical Hebrew language as the language of God, the first language ever spoken by mankind, even before
the division of Babel. The expression “holy language” (Lashon HaKodesh) specifically designates the Hebrew language.
The Scriptures were given in “holy language”
In the Christian tradition the Biblical Hebrew language enjoyed the high status of “holy language.” The New Testament, Church Fathers, Reformers, and
modern theologians, have emphasized the value of this language. ln the New Testament, the presence of Hebrew is felt everywhere important
key concepts (covenant, creation, kingdom of God, etc.) inherited from the Old Testament.
