Izzy here. I just had to tell you about this sweet little calendar journal book. It features the Hebrew calendar dates, the weekly Torah portions and a plan for reading through the Bible in a year, room to journal, and information on what happened that day in Jewish and Biblical history!
Joeyah is following Yeshua in a Hebrew way! Here's his story.
I am a Coptic Orthodox Christian from Egypt.
My story starts when I was 17. I didn’t know the Lord in spite of being a regular church-goer.
I went once to one of the monasteries in Egypt, for fun, during the summer vacation. There was a little pond in that monastery. I and a friend of mine sat by to enjoy the clear night in the middle of the desert.
While chatting there, we met a monk who appeared coming out of nowhere. He started talking to us about the Love of God towards us. Then he went his way to disappear in the pitch black desert.
From that day on, my life has completely changed. I began to read the Bible and praying to the Lord to manifest Himself to me. “I believe your Word God, I believe that you took care of Abraham.” I prayed.
“Lead me and make me yield to you exactly as Abraham did” I pleaded.
Days pass by and I came to North America as an immigrant, to a place I never expected myself to be at. I moved from a place to another unknowing where shall I be settled, that was for almost 6 years.
All of the sudden, the gates of knowledge were widely opened. Back when I was in Egypt the mere mention that you love Israel could jeopardize your life. Learning Hebrew would always raise the suspicion around you of espionage. In mean time, I was reading my Bible, especially the letters of St. Paul, he was saying something different.
I kept searching.
I listened to a video posted by Universal Torah Network (Belonging to The Temple Institute) and one of the lecturers was discussing St. Paul's saying:" What advantage then hath the Jew? Or what profit is there of circumcision? Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God." Another lady who was talking about the nuisances those are lost in the English translations. So I decided to study Hebrew to try to know what the oracles of God are.
I tried many websites (I am visual), till I came across your Website. It really exceeded my expectation; most importantly it is Yeshua Centered. Great teachings and committed teachers, plenty of resources and you feel like in the midst of brothers.
My main goal of studying any language (Hebrew included I also study some other ancient languages: Koine Greek, Latin, Coptic. I am just trying Syriac now beside some other live Languages: Arabic, my native language, English, French, German, Italian and Spanish) is the Word and how it is related to my life.
Finally I came across a book called "Analytical Key to the Old Testament” combined with Brown, Driver, and Briggs Lexicon and that was it, I now study the Word of God right from the beginning with no problem at all.
I wish I have known your website long time ago but I believe that there is a time for everything.
Finally, thank you all Holy Language Institute Family and keep doing the great job for the Glory of Yahweh the Father in Yeshua His Son by Ruach HaKodesh.
I prefer not to post a picture, I attached a picture you might find interesting. The picture of the Holy Family coming out of Egypt after the death of Herord in Coptic Art style with Coptic script at the top saying: " I have my Son out of Egypt".
