May I invite you to sing Hosanna?!
My sweet friend, Liz Giertz, hosts the weekly Word Nerd Wednesdays at her website where she invites writers to don their nerdiness as they dig deep into Biblical words to share the insights discovered. And I got the MONTH of December this year.
According to HELPS Word-studies, hosanna is a transliteration of the Hebrew term (hôsî-âh-nā) meaning “Oh, save now!” or “Please save!”
The –na suffix in Hebrew expresses intense emotion. Strong’s Greek 5614
(hōsanná) comes from two Hebrew roots meaning, “Save now!” or “Save I pray!”.
In the Hebrew Bible, hôsî-âh-nā is used only in verses such as “help” or “save, I pray!” as in Psalm 118:25. Save us!
Hosanna occurs 6 times in the Bible – even in The Message. I love the symmetry of God and His Word.
The first time we see the word Hosanna shouted is in Matthew 21:9.
The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
Adoration. Do you hear it?
The beautiful word Hosanna, save us, we pray! echoes through the Gospels as Jesus enters Jerusalem one final time.
