In this four-session video Bible study (DVD/digital downloads sold separately), Chris Tomlin and Darren Whitehead share a fresh perspective from the worship practices of the ancient world to show what itreallymeans to praise God. They explain that in the Jewish culture, something extraordinary happened when God's people gathered to worship him. It was more than just singing—it was a declaration, a proclamation, and a time for the people to fully embody praise to God for who he is and what he has done.
In the book of Psalms, the writers used seven distinct words that are translated into English aspraise.However, as Chris and Darren point out in this study, each of these Hebrew words actually represents a differentaspectof what it means to truly worship God:
-Yadah:to revere or worship with extended hands
-Halal:to boast, celebrate, and be clamorously foolish
-Zamar:to celebrate in song and in music
-Towdah: to give thanksgiving for things not yet received
-Barak: to kneel before God and bless him
-Tehillah: to sing a spontaneous song to God
-Shabach: to commend, glory, and triumph
Holy Roarwill provide insights and encouragement for group members to deepen their practice of praise and they learn about the deeper meanings of these words and put them into practice.
