1.        Lamad – To Teach

Originally, it referred to goading [push, stimulate] an ox to get him moving.        

Later, came to emphasize “getting someone to know something.”  “To cause to learn.”

Deuteronomy 5:31- “But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto thee all the         
commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may
do them in the land which I give them to possess it.” (KJV)

2.        Yada – To Know

Describes such a deep level of understanding that it is the word generally used in the Old
Testament to describe sexual intimacy.

“Knowledge led to action”

 Joshua 3:4 – “Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by
 measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not
 passed this way heretofore.  

3.         Bin – To Distinguish or Understand


 Nehemiah 8:7 – “Also Jeshua, and Bani, and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah,
 Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to
 understand the law: and the people stood in their place.”

 
After the Jews rebuilt the wall of Jerusalem the Levites caused the people to understand the
 law.

4.        Zahar – To Warn

Ezekiel 3:18“When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning,
nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die
in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.”

The purpose of warning always is to promote action.


VALID TEACHING ALWAYS LEADS TO “LEARNING.”

GOD EXPECTS TEACHERS TO TEACH IN A MANNER THAT ENABLES
STUDENTS/DISCIPLES TO “LEARN.”
