Did God Really Say…

Mysteries in Ancient Hebrew from the Garden of Eden by Pastor James C. Woodard. The Garden of Eden is one of the most intriguing yet elusive stories in the entire Bible. Providing the account of man’s beginnings, it also raises numerous questions about God’s intent for His relationship with the humans which He created to inhabit His amazing heavens and earth. In this account, Pastor Jim Woodard will guide the reader through selected words in that account that reveal mysteries of God’s intents only accessible through the original context of the pictographs of Ancient Hebrew. The story of the Garden of Eden in pictographs will give the reader dynamic new insight into why man is born into a dysfunctional relationship with God and hope for what can be done about it.
