New jerusalem guy, please stay off this post..even though you make me laugh!!

From Wikipedia

"From the Hebrew word for "dedication" or "consecration", Hanukkah marks the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem (Second Temple) after its desecration by the forces of the King of Syria Antiochus IV Epiphanes and commemorates the "miracle of the container of oil". According to the Talmud, at the re-dedication following the victory of the Maccabees over the Seleucid Empire, there was only enough consecrated olive oil to fuel the eternal flame in the Temple for one day. Miraculously, the oil burned for eight days, which was the length of time it took to press, prepare and consecrate fresh olive oil.

Hanukkah is also mentioned in 1 Maccabees and 2 Maccabees. The first states: "For eight days they celebrated the rededication of the altar. Then Judah and his brothers and the entire congregation of Israel decreed that the days of the rededication... should be observed... every year... for eight days. (1 Mac. 4:5659)" According to 2 Maccabees, "the Jews celebrated joyfully for eight days as on the feast of Booths."

The martyrdom of Hannah and her seven sons has also been linked to Hanukkah. According to a Talmudic story[2] and 2 Maccabees, a Jewish woman named Hannah and her seven sons were tortured and executed by Antiochus for refusing to eat pork, which would have been a violation of Jewish law".

The physical Jews have not held the chosen people status for 2000 years. God chooses us by our faith. See my sig below. God is not a respecter of people.

Re: Hanukkah begins at Sundown, so happy Hanukkah to Gods chosen!!
Today is the first full day of Hanukkah(8 letters) or Chanukah(8), it began at sunset last night. It is the eight-day(8) festival(8) that commerates Judah Maccabee, warrior son of the aged priest Mattathias, who dared to lead his small band of fighting men against the mighty Assyrians and defeat them in ~165 BC. As the legend goes, the Jews returned to purge the Jerusalem Temple of its Pagan idols including a statue of Zeus, and rededicate it to G-d. They found that there was only sacred oil enough for one day's burning of the temple lamp, yet, miracously the lamp burned eight full days. Thus began the Feast of Dedication/Feast of Lights and its 8-candle menorah(74).

Unfortunately, this story is not found in the Bible. The vast majority of Christians today don't celebrate this holiday(7,74), but shouldn't they?! Why even Y'shua(74)/Jesus(74) observed this festival...

"And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch." - John 10:22-23 (KJV)

The early Roman church leaders went out of their way to separate themselves from the Jews. The Roman Christians chose not to observe Jewish holidays and 'replaced' the Jerusalem Temple rededication festival with Christmas (they were stamping out Pagan celebrations of Saturnalia, winter solstice, and the sun-god Mithra's birth as well) and replaced the eight-day festival of Passover(8) with Easter. And let's not forget that the Romans conquered the Jews in 63 BC and destroyed their temple in 70 AD, so propaganda-wise, they chose not to remember the Dedication Festival.

We all have our agendas both on this forum and outside it. I consider myself Judeo-Christian & omni-religious. I celebrate Hanukkah & Christmas because I know that Y'shua/Jesus did and would now. Happy Hanukkah to everyone!
