I wanted to share a little story with you. When I first filmed Hebrew Quest back in 2009, one of my dreams was to see it translated into Spanish. There's a spiritual awakening breaking out right now in the Spanish-speaking world towards the Jewish roots of Christianity, and I wanted to do everything I could to provide solid, Yeshua-centered resources to help fan that flame.
That dream came true through Pablo Bentancor Modernell, a member of our tribe in Uruguay. Pablo asked if he could begin producing Hebrew Quest in his own words in Spanish. Of course I said YES! And the rest is history in the making.
So with that background, I thought you'd be excited to hear that Pablo just finished a new series of Spanish videos on the Hebrew titles of the Messiah! Watch them here.

Wanda is following Yeshua in a Hebrew way! Here's her story.
Shalom Izzy and Holy Language Tribe members, my name is Wanda Blount who is now at the ripe old age of 70. You never get too old to learn howbeit maybe a little slower as time rolls on.
I have spent my lifetime studying and learning (my passion) just to understand I have only touched the tip of the iceberg. It is my heart’s desire to know and understand my Abba Father, Yeshua and Holy Spirit in as much depth and fullness as I possibly can in this life.
I came to know Yeshua as my Messiah as a child before starting school. He has always been my life and inspiration. I can do nothing without Him, try as I may.
I didn’t know much about the Jewish people until I began studying the Bible for myself. I knew they were God’s chosen people and Yeshua was born a Jew. The replacement theory was being taught when I was growing up but it just didn’t set right in my spirit. I learned God’s Holy Word did not support that theory at all. In fact, His Word said we were grafted into (adopted) but did not replace the Jews. We are to come together in unity into one new man.
I have had a desire to learn Hebrew for many years but did not have the resources available. In more recent years, that desire has become overwhelming. I began to find numerous websites available with massive Jewish information. Unfortunately, I did not have the knowledge of how to organize all of this information to be able to understand how everything fit together.
Recently, I stumbled upon the Holy Language Institute website. I determined the program for learning Hebrew was laid out well and with affordable monthly offerings. I spent several weeks sorting out the many resources and finding a study buddy. Things were beginning to come together finally! Then Izzy came up with Memrise to help accommodate long term memorization and the weekly study group completing my need to have a workable system for learning Hebrew. Also, it correlates with reading the Torah. How perfect!
So I am just getting started with my first lesson. I am going through the video for the second time and making study notes. Thank you Izzy and the Holy Language Tribe.
I am a recent widow of 1 ½ years. I took care of my disabled husband since 1988 and was unable to get out much. Praise God for the internet which provided study materials and messages from many Godly Ministers. I learned many Hebrew (what I call) Nuggets and the need to go back to the original Hebrew roots. It just instilled a greater desire to learn more. I get so excited each time I learn something new and I just can’t wait to share with others what I learned. It is absolutely awesome! It has inspired my children and grandchildren to want to learn Hebrew as well.
