Hag Chanukah/Feast of the Dedication

Chanukah (Feast of Dedication/Festival of Lights) explores the fighting reaction to the reign of Antiochus. A band of Jewish settlers led by the priest, Yehudah Maccabee took back the temple and conquered their oppressors. Upon returning to the Temple they found it desecrated and defiled.

After rededicating and cleansing it, they found just one jar of oil for the lights of the Menorah. This oil miraculously lasted 8 days until the special oil of YAHWEH could be made.

Maran Yeshua is referred to as The Light and was conceived during the Festival of Lights. He is indeed the Light of the World.

John 10:22-30:

10:22 It was the Feast of Hanukkah at Jerusalem. 10:23 It was winter, and Yeshua was walking in the temple, in Solomon’s porch. 10:24 The Judeans, therefore, came around him and said to him, “How long will you hold us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.” 10:25 Yeshua answered them, “I told you, and you don’t believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name, these testify about me. 10:26 But you don’t believe, because you are not of my sheep, as I told you. 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 10:28 I give eternal life to them. They will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. 10:29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 10:30 I and the Father are one.”
