Hanukkah 2 days ago

Non-Jews and Hanukkah

Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday. It’s kind of like, we think, some kind of Jewish substitute for Christmas. They saw all the fun we were having every winter and came up with something a little different that they could do, too. So we imagine them putting Hanukkah presents under the menorah, or maybe a Hanukkah bush of some kind.

Did Christmas Originate with Hanukkah?

Many believe Christmas to have solely pagan roots that were re-purposed by early Gentile Christians. Messianic Jewish luminary Theophilus Lucky has a different, interesting take on the theory of Christmas’ origins. Lucky believes that the birth of Messiah was celebrated every year at Hanukkah on the 25th of Kislev.

The First Mohel

Medical expertise, Jewish identity, and halachic knowledge finds expression in exactly one active Messianic Jewish mohel: Dr. Worthington-Kirsch. We sat down with Dr. Worthington-Kirsch to ask how he ended up as a mohel, what barriers to entry might exist for other Messianic prospects, and what it might look like to train more.

An Open Secret about the Pilgrims

While we talk about Pilgrims around the Thanksgiving table, few of us actually understand who or what they were. This was a movement that lasted for well over a century. It intersected with Jewish rabbis and brought the study of Kabbalah and rabbinic texts to the new world.

Torah Club is where disciples learn. It's about understanding the Bible and finding fellowship. We want to spread the revelation of Messiah and His kingdom to the world. Torah Club accomplishes this by creating serious and intentional small-group studies where disciples of Jesus study the Bible from a Jewish perspective.

Jacob's Sukkah

Although Jacob did not build his booths to keep the festival by the same name, the LORD commanded his descendents to imitate him by building sukkot annually as a reminder of their journey to the Promised Land, during which they lived in huts and booths

Restoring the Kingdom

The prophets universally agree that at the end of this age, God will restore Israel—the nation, the kingdom, the monarchy, the Temple—everything He originally promised to the children of Abraham. The apostles understood that the coming of Yeshua didn’t change that; in fact, He will accomplish all of this, in time.

When God Is Silent

Sometimes—actually, most of the time—God can feel very far away. And when we look at the evil in our world it’s easy to ask the question: Where are you God?

Is There a Deadline for Good Deeds?

Yeshua had only one main sermon and teaching, and it’s the same teaching he told his disciples to present: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near” (Matthew 4:17). He told his disciples that he had been sent only to declare that message (Luke 4:43).
