The Hebrew Lives

Papyrus whispers words of refuge:

“Shelter here, little one,

Where killers cannot find you.

Shelter here, little one,

We the reeds will hide you.”
Hide, Hebrew!
The woman who never knew his father sings, 

“Egypt will adore you,

Prince among men, 

Egypt will adore you,

Now here among friends.”
Return, Hebrew!

Unearthly visions echo:

“Deliverance for My people,

I return you to them

Deliverance for My people,

From Only I AM. 

“Die, Hebrew!”

The angry council cries

“Die, Hebrew!

Your testimony is a lie.

We have known Moses,

The Egypt deliverer

We have known Moses,

and he is our Savior.

You are only


You are only a fraud

You may be a teacher, 

But certainly no God.”
Rise, Hebrew!

Rise, Son of Man!

Rise up, Yeshua!

For you are 

The Hebrew lives.

“‘We know that God has spoken to Moses, but as for this man, we do not know where He comes from.’ 

The man answered, ‘Why, this is an amazing thing! You do not know where He comes from, and yet He opened my eyes.'” 

John 9:29-30

Hi, there! My name is Stephanie and I’m a Fresno, CA native. After studying at Biola University, I received my MLIS (Masters in Library Science) from San Jose State University. I live with my mom, poet Kimberly Vargas Agnese, and serve as her unofficial agent. We reside at MeadowArc, a food forest in its infancy. I am called to, and passionate about, purity. In fact, the name Agnes means “pure.” Before I was born, my mom felt led to include the name Agnes in her name, and in the names of her children. My full, hyphenated name includes 26 letters (but not the whole alphabet).
