You don't learn the Hebrew language merely because it is the language of the Bible and therefore deemed sacred. If that is your reason for learning the language then it takes one person to be religious and be familiar with the Holy Bible for him to study the Hebrew language.
However, anyone's interest might be heightened by extensive knowledge on the Hebrew history, heritage, and culture. The most interesting thing about understanding their language is that it leads you deeper into a wide range of information on anthropology. It is said that there are many ancient tools, ancient texts and inscriptions that would make you understand more the language, the Bible, and the culture, in the past and the recent.
Nonetheless, being able to understand fully the book of all time that is believed by millions of people of various religious denominations is quite a success on its own right already. Not only will it inspire people to do something or believe in something; it also gives you the means to direct your life in a way that's transformative. Many people big or small in terms of social status have anchored their beliefs and principles in Christianity and religion which for the most part would be more understandable to many when the Bible is read in its original language: the Hebrew language.
There are several reasons for you to be inspired by the Hebrews. Being a nomadic people of the near east, the culture that they perpetuated and the language they speak are intertwined. For an adventurer at heart, you would find it a pleasure reading Hebrew literature, not just The Bible, when you know that every Hebrew word is defined by an action taken in the nomadic journeys of the Hebrew people in the wilderness.
The Bible has so many modern translations that most of them have lost the original meaning that can be found on the Bible with the original Hebrew language. It is said that the modern languages all have the Greco Roman perspective where words are abstract. The original Hebrew language however is a language that is based on concrete action and not profound meaning. When you say Angry in English it means a lot of things. It can be passive anger, a violent attack, a verbal reprimand and many more but for the Hebrews, it only means one thing: the flaring of the nostrils in anger.
Another big difference between the modern language and the original Hebrew language is that of function. The modern world says the ark is large and it gives the modern man a whole lot of images in the mind. However the original Hebrew language would give you the size and the dimension that tells you of its functions.
These and many more would surely entice you to learn the language. One great thing about the language is that you can learn it anytime and anywhere you want with the use of your portable device, through the Pimsleur language learning audio program. You can get a copy of it at The Talking Book Store.
