What is an Hebraic Worldview?
The vision of the creation that was given by God to the Hebrew nation.
The Hebrews were taught by God to see the throne of God as existing over the present earth; this was called the heaven of God, or the third heaven. The two other heavens were those of humanity (the first) and the angelic (the second). This is in contrast to the Platonic worldview that disconnected the heaven of God from the present creation and made it something we could only access or engage in the next life. The Hebraic worldview was holistic. It viewed men and women as God’s image-bearers, living out their vocation to fill all of creation with the glory of God. For the Hebrew, God’s creative order was to be enjoyed, not treated as something to be endured until death took them away from the earth.
