About Me

Brian loves to study and ponder on the Bible. He loves to teach Hebrew language and Messianic Judaism.

My name is Brian Palkki. I am an alumnus of the University of Wisconsin and a student of the Master, Yeshua the Messiah (aka. Jesus Christ). I like to think deeply about texts, in general, but I specifically love texts related to the Bible and the Jewish literature. I love the God of Israel and His Chosen people, The Jewish people. I have a Messianic Jewish world view, and I am a Messianic Gentile by His Grace.
