What do you mean?
Are you asking why the language is named after Eber (father of the Hebrews) ?

It is a Hebrew language bonus question on my final exam.

Hint:  Write it in Hebrew script.

I don't understand the question.
It's spelled ayin-bet-resh-yod-tav I think.
It derives from the name Eber, son of Shelah.

okay so if you remove the ayin from Ivrit, it becomes "brit", or covenant - is that what you were going for ?

That is very interesting.  So we could say that Hebrew is the covenant language of the one crossing over.

Thank you for your insight.  Let me know of any other ideas.  Shalom!

"Hebrew" in the Ancient Hebrew  By Peter M. Lopez

 

The word Hebrew (Ibrit) is comprised of the Hebrew letters AYIN, BET, RESH, YOD and TAV. The pictograph for the letter AYIN (similar to, though not the exact equivalent of, our letter "E" or "I") is an eye, meaning to see. BET (B) is pictured as a tent or house, meaning house, as in a lineage. RESH (R) is pictured as a man's head, meaning the first or highest person. YOD (Y) is pictured as an arm from the fist to the elbow, meaning my hand/works. TAV (T) is pictured as two crossed sticks, meaning a covenant or mark.

Now, the Hebrew word brit (spelled BET, RESH, YOD, TAV) is the word for "covenant". So, the word Hebrew (or Ibrit) is TO SEE the COVENANT. The Hebrew word brit (covenant) can be broken down further. The Hebrew/Aramaic word bar (spelled BET-RESH) is the word "son". Therefore, brit (covenant) is the SON with his HANDS on the CROSS.

In short, within the very word Hebrew (Ibrit), Yah has shown that we will SEE his COVENANT, and that the COVENANT is the SON with his HANDS on the CROSS. So, Yeshua is Yah's covenant.

"So we could say that Hebrew is the covenant language of the one crossing over."

How so?

Ivrit=  Hebrew

Brit=  Covenant

Avr=  Cross Over

Avar with an ayin means "beyond" I think, but anyway, let's say you're right: then what?
How does any of this mean that "we could say that Hebrew is the covenant language of the one crossing over"`?

Ah, why beat around the bush.
You're trying to say the British and their descendants in America were Hebrews, obfuscatingly, despite the fact that they didn't and don't speak Hebrew.

Avar definitely means to cross over, see Deut 27:3 for a good example.  Avraham was the first, I believe, listed in Scripture listed as a Hebrew (other than Eber).  He was the only person of his age who had crossed over (a river for imagery's sake, jordan, or red sea) into a covenant with YHWH.  Before everyone was an idolator Josh 24:2.  So a Hebrew, in one manner of speaking, is one who has crossed over into a covenant relationship with YHWH.

Actually, I don't buy into British-Israelitism.

Ah, a definition-game.

I didn't accuse you of "British Israelism", I accused you of believing the British and their descendants ("crossing over" to settle) in America were Hebrews.
