Izzy here. Did you know that the man behind the world's most listened to audio recordings of the Hebrew Bible was a believer in Yeshua the Messiah?
Abraham Shmuelof grew up in an ultraorthodox Jewish family in Jerusalem, fought alongside Menachem Begin in the Irgun and against the Nazis in Britain's famous 'Jewish Legion', and came to believe in Yeshua after reading a New Testament he acquired in exchange for cigarettes in a prisoner of war camp.

Chana is following Yeshua in a Hebrew way! Here's her story.
The L-rd’s calling in my life is so amazing! My husband and I dedicated ourselves to Yeshua rather late in life, and attended a Baptist church. We moved to another state and started searching for a community of true believers that we could call home. The L-rd led us to a wonderful Messianic community in North Carolina, and we are firmly planted there now. We didn’t even know there was such a thing as Messianism, and had no knowledge of the Jewish roots of our faith. With the help of our Rabbi and many other Jewish and gentile believers, we learned that Yeshua was Jewish, the apostles were Jewish and in fact, the whole Bible – Tanakh and Brit Chadashah was written first for the Jewish people and was about the Jewish people. We began learning Hebrew – the most beautiful language in the world – truly leshon hakodesh. The Holy Language teachings have been invaluable in our quest for knowledge of the true and pure meanings in G-D’s Holy Word, as well as the Jewish roots of our faith.
The Lord has called my husband and I into music ministry. We have been learning Hebrew praise and worship songs to perform. We are so blessed to be able to speak and sing Hebrew. But that isn’t all… I finally learned why the Lord called me into the Messianic community and why He imparted such a deep desire to learn and understand the Jewish roots of my faith. I found out two years ago that my real-biological father is from Columbia, South America and is Jewish. I understood why I was so passionate about the Hebrew language and all that is Jewish. Isn’t the Lord wonderful?!

It is a song about married love as taught in the Song of Songs. It also speaks of the love Yeshua has for each one of us.
