Definition of Hebraist in English:
A scholar of the Hebrew language.
- And Gill was probably the greatest Hebraist of the 18th century (before the rise of ‘higher criticism’) and staunchly defended biblical inerrancy, and only very rarely pointed out textual problems.
- Likewise modern scholarship has translated Matthew back to Hebrew and discovered puns there which disappear in Greek (I'm no Hebraist, so don't ask me).
