Shaul Bar explores the etymology of key terms for dreams in the Hebrew Bible, presents dozens of examples of biblical dreams and visions, and categorizes them as prophetic, symbolic, or incubation. He studies biblical dreams and visions in the context of similar phenomena in the literature of neighboring cultures and analyzes the functions of dream reports in the biblical corpus. There are two types of those communicative dreams in the Bible–prophetic and symbolic. Prophetic dreams contain an annunciation, injunction, or warning, spoken to the dreamer in clear and intelligible terms by God Himself, who addresses a human being directly.

In Hebrew, the first book of the bible is called Be-reshit. It is the first word in our phrase in this lesson. Does it sound familiar? Of course it should! It is the first word in our phrase in this lesson. In fact, in the five books of the Hebrew Torah, all books are named after the word that starts them off. After Be-reshit comes: Can you read it? (Pause) that’s right! It’s Šhemot, which means Names. Next we have . Can you read it? Yes! it is Vayiqra, and in Hebrew it means something like he calls. In English, it is also called Leviticus. Do you know what the next book is? (Pause) Yes, it’s Bamidbar. In English this is usually called the Book of Numbers, but in Hebrew it means in the wilderness or desert.

An examination of dreams and visions that appear in the Hebrew Bible. Since Freud, the rational modern approach to human dreams has typically involved inquiry into past emotional states. In contrast, the ancients, unfamiliar with the intricate byways of the human soul revealed by modern psychology, saw dreams as channels of communication between human beings and external sources. Shaul Bar examines dozens of the dreams and visions in the Hebrew Bible, categorizes them as prophetic, sumbolic, or incubation dreams, compares and contrasts them with corresponding phenomena in the literature of neighboring cultures, and analyzes their functions in the biblical corpus. A Letter That Has Not Been Read will intrigue students and scholars of the Hebrew Bible and anyone interested in the study of dreams.
