Really Basic. Read All the links in the post to find best start for You:
"This section is devoted to the study of the differences in western thinking (Greek, Hellenistic) and Eastern thinking (Hebrew, scriptural). The Scriptures, Old and New Testaments, are penned by Hebrew authors from an Hebrew culture. They cannot be properly understood outside of this perspective. It is our contention that modern Christian teaching filters Scripture through Greek or Hellenistic glasses. This section was originally taught as a college level entry course. There are tests placed at the end of every few lessons. We hope you find the vast difference in these two thought processes as provocative as we do "

"Hebraism and Hellenism – between these two points of influence
moves our world."
The Bible, in its original languages, is, humanly speaking, a product of the Hebrew mind. The first and original manifestation of what we now call "The Church" was also an expression of the Hebrew mind. At some point in ecclesiastical history, someone snatched away the inceptive Hebraic blueprint by which Jesus’ movement was being constructed and replaced it with a non-Hebraic one. As a result, what has been built since is at best a caricature of what was intended. In many respects, it is downright contrary and antagonistic to the spirit of the original believing community.

Until we can reconstruct with some confidence the emergence of Gnosticism, it is highly speculative to speak of the influence of Gnostic ideas on the emerging Christian faith. There is, however, a body of Greek literature that contains a view of man and the world very close to that of developed Gnosticism, namely, those Greek philosophical and religious writings that reflect the influence of Platonic dualism. These are writings that are well known and datable; and it is profitable to compare their view of man and the world with the biblical view in both the Old and New Testaments.
The basic problem is that of dualism. However, dualism means different things in the Greek view and in the biblical view.

What we now consider “The Church” is almost nothing like the Early New Testament Church. Think of an archeologist digging through layers to find out what life was like in ancient times.
Historians concur that the Greeks were destroyed by moral decay. Pursuing knowledge without God is a recipe for disaster. We simply cannot survive without clear moral direction. Look at the differences in education goals:

Recently someone asked me what I meant by the term "Greek mindset," especially when used in contradistinction to the term "Hebraic mindset." This is a complicated question, of course, and entire books have been written on the subject.  By way of response, however, I wrote the following exploratory article where I attempt to look at a few of the basic distinctions.  If you find any of this confusing, please forgive my ineptitude and ignore what I've written. - jjp

In the world, past and present, there are two major types of cultures; the Hebrew (or eastern) culture and the Greek (or western) culture. Both of these cultures view their surroundings, lives, and purpose in ways which would seem foreign to the other. With the exception of a few Bedouin nomadic tribes living in the Near East today, the ancient Hebrew culture has disappeared.

When I first heard about Greek and Hebrew thinking, I found it confusing because I was an American and was sure I didn’t think in either Greek or Hebrew. I read my Bible not understanding the thinking patterns of the writers who were Hebrews living in a biblical culture. I eventually learned, however, that the Western civilization I grew up in more closely resembles Greek or Hellenistic thinking, and that the differences between Greek and Hebrew touch every area of life.

The way we interpret scripture depends a lot on the way we view the world around us (our worldview). The ancient Hebrews viewed the world much differently than we do. Worldviews are generally divided into two categories — Eastern and Western. The way that the Hebrews and other ancient cultures viewed the world would be classified as mostly “Eastern.” The “Western” way of thinking was introduced by the Greeks in the sixth century BC through the works of philosophers such as Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle.

What is the difference between Greek thought and Hebrew thought?  It would be most picturesque to picture a scene.  In one scene you are watching a group of people argue in black and white, elegantly splitting hairs, while in the other scene you see other people arguing in full vivid technicolor pulling at their beards and eating and talking excitedly

Why Greek vs. Hebrew?
Because the English language is based on the Greek language and thus the mindset of those who use it (Americans/us) have a Greek mindset.
Why is that important?
The scriptures were written mostly in Hebrew almost entirely by men who spoke Hebrew.  To understand the thought behind many of the scriptures, it is necessary to understand the thought processes.  You don’t have to learn the Hebrew language, just the Hebrew mindset.
