Is Hanukkah a BIBLICAL Feast? | Answering Your Questions!


Is Hanukkah a biblical feast? Shalom I’m Bob Mendolsohn
Neither the word, nor the holiday Hanukkah is found in the record of the Older Testament,
since the canon, the official collection of what is in the Scriptures, was closed before
the military victory of the Maccabees occurred. So, the Jewish Bible, the one Yeshua read,
has no mention of the story of Antiochus and the Syrian Greeks, of Judah Maccabee and the
few beating up on the many. The story of Hanukkah is similar to the story
of David and Goliath. That the Newer Testament mentions the holiday
(John 10.22) as a marker of a time when Yeshua was in the precinct of the Holy Temple I think
that’s significant. But most non-Jewish Christians don’t celebrate
Hanukkah at all. Many Jewish believers in Yeshua do celebrate
the holiday in measure, that is, in some form or another. Whether with dreidels or latkes, with sufganiyot
or family gatherings, Hanukkah is a great time of year to remind ourselves of God, and
of His love for all people.

  1. When are you going to tell us that hamentashen have three sides which represent the Father, the son and the holy spirit? Isn't that what you did with the Passover matzah?
