One day as he was working alongside one of his coworkers, Yossi received some news that caused him to blurt out, “Hallelujah!”
His co-worker said to him, “I didn’t know you were a Christian.”
“What do you mean?” asked Yossi.
“You said hallelujah. That’s a Christian word.”
“What are you talking about? Hallelujah is two Hebrew words. Hallel (praise) and Yah (God). It’s in the Tanak. There’s no word more Jewish than this one.”
Yossi was stunned that a native born Jewish Israeli could not know that the word hallelujah is a Hebrew word of praise. It showed how the average Israeli can know little about the Scriptures.
Please pray for secular Israelis to learn the Scriptures, come to know the God of the Bible, and understand how the Scriptures point to Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah.
