The Aramaic Beatitudes Course
You are invited on a journey of deep inner healing in "The Beatitude Way." The "Beatitude Way" is a way of healing, a way of connecting deeply within – to honor and respect all parts of yourself. The Beatitude Way guides you towards acknowledging deep pain, and to experience the uniting of self with Self.
Studying the Beatitudes Meaning
The word "beatitude" can simply mean "happy" or "blessed," yet many people associate the word specifically with a set of teachings given by Jesus to his followers. The Beatitudes are found in the Christian Scriptures and comprise a portion of a sermon that Jesus (Yeshua) of Nazareth gave as a young Jewish rabbi/teacher in the beginning phase of his public teaching. Many scholars as well as Christian believers believe that the Beatitudes contain the essence of Yeshua's entire message.
Many people grew up with the "old and familiar" King James Version, of the Beatitudes.
The above is only one translation of Jesus' words, a translation based on Greek manuscripts which were translated over the centuries from one language into another – into Latin, German, and then into various forms of the English language. However, Jesus did not teach in Greek, Latin, German, or English. He spoke and taught in Aramaic. In the Temple, he would have spoken Hebrew – a sister language to Aramaic, which was the more formal language for the Temple.
And he would have spoken in Aramaic, the common language of the day, in his more informal teaching settings, such as on a Galilean hillside with a group of believers gathered to hear his message. In the Sermon on the Mount, Aramaic would have been the language Yeshua used to deliver his teachings.
In this Beatitudes course, you will look at these sayings of Yeshua through the lens of his native language Aramaic.
