"Thessalonians to Hebrews" is a companion to the Cherokee syllabary-only New Testament digitized and released in 2013. Translated into Cherokee in the nineteenth century under the direction of Revs. Samuel Worcester and Elias Boudinot, the Cherokee New Testament is the largest complex text composed in Cherokee by fluent speakers with command of a high level of the language. For generations, the New Testament has been used by Cherokees of all persuasions to learn to speak and write as their ancestors did. The Epistles were written to instruct fledgling churches around the Mediterranean, and contain straightforward answers to questions confusing the local Christians and their leaders. Hebrews is written to Hebrew (Aramaic) speakers, and faces hard questions about a Christian's duty to keep Jewish law - or not. Deepen your understanding of the Cherokee Bible and the Cherokee language by reading each verse in Cherokee syllabary, phonetic Cherokee, and English. We present the books of the New Testament in a larger type size than commonly available. This is to accommodate those who would like to study the characters in Cherokee, several of which are difficult to distinguish from one another in smaller type. This series provides syllabary, phonetic Cherokee, and English for each verse. We recommend you sound out each word using the syllabary guide in the back of the book. Proceeds from the sale of this volume benefit the Cherokee Bible Project and the Four Rivers Native American Church in their missions.
